In the last 5 years, he has begun specialising in building hybrid database clusters, using MySQL for relational data and various distributed databases (often called "NoSQL") to store key/value or sparse hash map data.
He has always been a strong proponent of using the right tool for the job, which can sometimes be a surprising and radical notion.
CTO of Homerent
Since 1999 I have learned and given back to the mySQL community, before replication was stable, when myISAM was the Hot storage engine and new over ISAM. I frequently give talks and help people to understand how mySQL can help them. I mainly deal with scale but the entire LAMP stack is my domain. From CSS down to Kernel tweaks is my contribution to FriendFinder, Friendster, Flickr, RockYou, SchoolFeed, Weebly to you!
