In-Memory SQL DB
July 10, 2011
According to database pioneer Michael Stonebraker, Facebook is operating a huge, complex MySQL implementation equivalent to “a fate worse than death,” and the only way out is “bite the bullet and rewrite everything.”
When I hear people throw around terms like “web scale”, or “acid”, I usually face-palm & think of that MongoDB vs SQL extra normal video.
I can’t wait to see “newsql” but I would love for someone to explain how Bing has accomplished “web scale” with MVC3 & SQL. It seems to negate claims such as this.
