It’s an ACID-compliant key-value data store, with a Java API for put, delete and get operations and includes replication. The data partitioning and distribution is automatic and based on a hash function.

OurSQL Episode 57: Eventual Discovery part 2

This week we have feedback about Gazzang - Gazzang is using encryptfs for their encryption. According to their launchpad project page at https://launchpad.net/ecryptfs, "eCryptfs is a POSIX-compliant enterprise-class stacked cryptographic filesystem for Linux".

The main topic is the 2nd part of events:

What events log and where the event logs are
How errors show up in the error log
How events and their actions get logged to the binary logs (aka events and replication), including how the "ignore" and "do" replication limitations work with events. Manual page: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/stored-programs-logging.html
