"Looking for MySQL Storage Engine Writer"

I would not normally blog this, but I thought it was interesting to see this appear in the MySQL forums:

We're looking for a consultant to help us write a custom storage engine that distributes data amongst many machines but abstracts this from clients who still issue regular MySQL queries.

You can look at it as a stripped down version of MySQL Cluster or a beefed up version of the FEDERATED storage engine.

Candidates must have strong knowledge of clustering and MySQL internals.,147823

When I was in Japan last week I got to meet another one of the Storage Engine vendors. Who had joined their company to do this work?

One of my X interns.

There is a good and growing eco-system forming around this work. On Friday of the week of our Conference I am hosting a Storage Engine Summit. This is for the different vendors/engine writers to sit down and discuss what they are seeing and what they need. I'll blog about this when we get closer to the event (it is a closed, invitation only to just engine writers).
