Visiting SolidDB

I and David went to go visit Solid DB yesterday. They are one of the
companies now producing storage engines for MySQL. You can find a
copy of their engine here:


What is special about their engine? Its transactional engine, MVCC
engine, that has foreign keys. It keeps the transaction in memory
until it is time to commit. More about their own technical
information here:


We spent the time going over changes the loadable engine interface,
which includes the I_S for loadable interface. I also got to see a
preview of what they will be showing at the MySQL User's Conference (which I am excited
to see what the response to their roadmap will be).
