XtraDB: InnoDB on Steroids

Article Source Linux Magazine
June 8, 2009, 5:20 am

Last week I spent a bit of time looking at The State of MySQL and mentioned some of the “outside innovation” taking place in the community. This week I’d like to focus on one of the more significant developments: XtraDB and xtrabackup, both developed by Percona.

Now you may not have heard much about Percona before. Founded in 2006 by Peter Zaitsev and Vadim Tkachenko with the goal of providing consulting for MySQL users, the company has grown in the last few years to employ some of the leading experts in MySQL and InnoDB internals. Several of the employees work on enhancing MySQL and InnoDB to meet the needs of their [paying] customers as well as the community at large. They’ve contributed numerous patches and ideas as well as writing on their popular MySQL Performance Blog and presenting at various conferences.
