Massimiliano Pinto

Senior Software Engineer, MariaDB Corporation

Massimiliano has worked for almost 15 years in Web Companies playing the roles of Technical Leader and Software Engineer. Prior to joining SkySQL/MariaDB he worked at Banzai Group and Matrix S.p.A, big players in the Italy Web Industry. He is still a guy who likes too much the terminal window on his Mac. Apache modules and PHP extensions skills are included as well.


Flexible database clusters impose challenges in terms of load balancing, load splitting, write conflict avoidance and service availability, to name a few. MaxScale is a highly modular proxy with a pluggable API, that assists in offloading tasks away from both clients and the back-end servers.
