Bernd Ocklin, responsible for running the MySQL Cluster team at Oracle, recently celebrated his first 10 years with the MySQL organization. MySQL Cluster is the high performance and availability core of the largest mobile phone networks and for many popular gaming back ends. Bernd first worked as a solution architect for high available database and clustering solutions and then joined the MySQL Cluster development at Sun/Oracle. To his credit, he has designed and programmed machine learning and data analysis solutions at his own company in addition to writing a database core prior to using MySQL databases. The outcome of such work has proven extremely useful in big scale data processing, i.e., for fraud detection at the world’s largest derivatives exchange.
