We're pleased to have Giuseppe Maxia, MySQL Community Team Lead at Sun Microsystems, speak with us at this very special event, hosted at Sun Microsystem's offices.

Boosting performance with partitions in MySQL 5.1 and 5.5

Partitions divide up large data sets to increase performance and minimize disk and other bottlenecks. In this talk, Giuseppe will look at the general concepts around partitioning, how they apply to MySQL, and how to utilize these valuable features in MySQL 5.1 and MySQL 5.4 for improving performance and scalability.

Giuseppe Maxia, a.k.a. The Data Charmer.

I am the MySQL Community Team Lead at Sun Microsystems. I am active member of the MySQL community and long timer open source enthusiast. During the past 23 years I have worked in various IT related fields, with focus on databases, object oriented programming, system administration. Fluent in Italian, English, Perl, SQL, Lua, C, Bash, and good speaker of C++, French, Spanish, Java. I work in cyberspace, with a virtual team.

This meeting will also be in cooperation with Dubai PHP.


Dubai MySQL and Dubai PHP are here to help build and support the open source and technical communities in Dubai.

If you have work to be done, or you are looking for work, this is a great chance to meet and network with others in Dubai.

We're also looking for co-organizers and presentations to help host future meetings - it's not a lot of work and a great way to get visibility.

Contact Us to get involved or provide feedback on how we can improve the groups to better help the community.
