MySQL in Education

I'm working today on the notion of an engineered system for running both Moodle and Drupal on top of MySQL on Sun backed up with GBU support subscriptions and services for the education market where open source growth presents an opportunity for our story. At Sun a few years back, we had some challenges with PHP threading model on T-series processors, but maybe that's been addressed with latest CPU architectures. Stay tuned.

WETA


As a follow-up to yesterday's post on the amazing virtual 3D camera magic behind avatar, it's cool to see WETA using MySQL too. The processing power required to render these new ultra-realistic digital worlds includes 40,000 processors, 104 terabytes of RAM, 17GB/minute of storage for the final cut making WETA's renderfarm #196-199 on the Top 500. As John Lasseter always says, "the art challenges the technology and technology inspires the art". I cannot wait to see the worlds our students will create in an inter-connected network of 3-D Wonderland servers and hope it's powered by Oracle-Sun systems.
