  1. Hoping for others being benchmarked as well

    https://www.vultr.com/ is trying to be the digital ocean 'killer' by being cheaper and claiming to be faster, so that might be a good provider to compare.

    What would also be interresting is to...

    Here is probably an even better description of how to recover from problems:

  4. Have only played with it, but...

    I hear (Open)Suse includes btrfs and disables all the btrfs features that aren't production ready AND picks the right kernel for you.

    Basically, feature wise this means: no multi-device support...

    That isn't completely true.

    They do help the Linux kernel developers for the mobile Nvidia chip (which is where Nvidia doesn't have a large market share).
  6. Re-use the same instance ?

    Why not test with the old version and then copy all the files onto the same instance and reboot ?

    Couldn't you do something like that ? I know it will take some practice to get the procedure...

    I tried visiting their site, but their webserver doesn't give any HTML-responses, nginx does respond with redirects. So something is down on their end.

    Well, just having crc32 might not be enough, but crc32c is and that's what btrfs uses.

    And certain CPUs have SSE4.2 support, which has crc32c support as well.

    There are things people always don't know or forgot to mention.

    I believe Suse disables the multi-device support in btrfs in their kernels.

    They say, the general filesystem is stable, it's the...

    I don't know if Google internally use MariaDB, but YouTube does use MySQL in a non-traditional way:

    Is that a reply to me ? He was talking about PostgreSQL it's license was chosen over 20 years ago.

    I don't know why you are "complaining" about something that happened over 20 years ago, do you have any idea how hard it is to re-license such an old and large code base ?

    I do wonder for how many users or developers this is a real problem.

    Companies like RedHat or VMWare, have a legal department that will look at it and their customers just go to them for support....
  14. Maybe I'm confused, English isn't my first...

    Maybe I'm confused, English isn't my first language, but isn't PostgreSQL using a license very similar to MIT or BSD ?

    Is it really that vanity ?

    I would have prefered if it said, something...

    Maybe, it's hard to say if that is true.

    Clearly the MySQL model worked even less well.

    And companies like RedHat, VMWare, EnterpriseDB, PostgreSQL Experts, Command Prompt, Disqus, 2ndQuadrant,...

    asm.js

    Sounds to me like asm.js might be a much bigger win. It has demonstrated far, far larger improvements:

  17. scale

    PostgreSQL can scale very large in the "vertical" fashion (very large machines), but it's still limited in how it can scale in the 'horizontal' fasion. Basically it still is 'just SQL', not NoSQL. A...

    Not that I would want NaCl, I think it would be a bad thing for the web, but Wikipedia does mention:

    The web wasn't meant to be tied to any platform (Windows or Linux, BSD, Mac, BeOS, whatever), should it really be tied to processor instead ?

    This is something Mozilla is very unlikely to adopt,...
