24 May 2017 IBM Accelerates Open Database-as-a-Service on IBM Power Systems [63775]
IBM, May 24th 2017

IBM announced a new Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) toolkit on Power Systems optimized for open source databases, including MongoDB, EDB PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Redis, Neo4j, and Apache Cassandra to help deliver more speed, control, and efficiency for enterprise developers and IT departments.

The new platform gives database administrators and developers the ability to easily deploy a fully configured private cloud with automated provisioning for open source database services. Users can easily gain the efficiency of a cloud delivery model, while also maintaining oversight and control of resource allocation and secure data policies. Because the Open DBaaS Platform is built on OpenStack, it can also easily be incorporated into the organization's hybrid cloud management strategy.

06 Jan 2017 Millions of Queries per Second: PostgreSQL and MySQL's Peaceful Battle at Today's Demanding Workloads [59469]
Percona, January 6th, 2017

Anastasia Raspopina and Sveta Smirnova blogs, "This blog compares how PostgreSQL and MySQL handle millions of queries per second.

That's why in this blog post, we share the benchmark testing results from Alexander Korotkov (CEO of Development, Postgres Professional) and Sveta Smirnova (Principal Technical Services Engineer, Percona). The comparative research of PostgreSQL 9.6 and MySQL 5.7 performance will be especially valuable for environments with multiple databases.

The idea behind this research is to provide an honest comparison for the two popular RDBMSs. Sveta and Aleksander wanted to test the most recent versions of both MySQL and PostgreSQL with the same tool, under the same challenging workloads and using the same configuration parameters (where possible). However, because both PostgreSQL and MySQL ecosystems evolved independently, with standard testing tools (pgbench and SysBench) used for each database, it wasn't an easy journey..."

29 Jul 2016 On Uber's Choice of Databases [54788]
By Markus Winand

Markus writes, "A few days ago Uber published the article 'Why Uber Engineering Switched from Postgres to MySQL'. I didn't read the article right away because my inner nerd told me to do some home improvements instead. While doing so my mailbox was filling up with questions like 'Is PostgreSQL really that lousy?'.

Knowing that PostgreSQL is not generally lousy, these messages made me wonder what the heck is written in this article. This post is an attempt to make sense out of Uber's article..."
