Using MySQL database for Data Warehouse Implementation

Jacob Nikom, senior database architect at Invaluable, LLC, will discuss "Using MySQL database for Data Warehouse Implementation".

From Jacob:

In this presentation I describe my company's data warehouse that was created using MySQL database. One of our goals was to investigate Open Source storage solution and its coexistence with company's proprietary data storage technology. We found that this combination provided us not just with quite reasonable cost, but also with excellent flexibility and reliability, and after significant optimization, it delivered quite satisfying performance. We were able to start from scratch, developed small, but useful application, and could successfully to scale it up in step with company's growth.

I will talk about general data warehouse principles and how they applied to our data warehouse design, the storage and data management design and implementation, performance optimization and future directions for our data warehouse development.
