Rode the MySQl AB / Sun Microsystems / Oracle train, then hung around SkySQL Ab for a while. Looking after the wikis these days.

Wikipedia is one of the top 10 websites in the world by number of visitors according to several sources {{citation needed}}. At the core of its data infrastructure lay over 150 instances of MySQL and MariaDB in order to store not only the monthly 10 million edits of Wikipedias in dozens of languages, but also several other multilingual wiki projects, community-driven tools and internal services.
