Recent Conference Talks
Bigger, Faster, Safer, Easier databases with MariaDB 10 by Open Query engineer/trainer Peter Lock at the Open Source Developers' Conference 2014 (Griffith University, Gold Coast QLD). For other talks, see our Presentations page.
An Initial Review is a good way to get to know the people at Open Query and the way we work. It's a packaged 4 hour consulting arrangement at a special introductory price of AUD 675 + GST (for 4 hours), where we do the following:
- Discuss with you whether there are any particular current concerns you'd like us to investigate.
- Arrange remote access to your database server, optionally slaves, and possibly web servers or other related systems.
- Take a look around on the servers, both on the OS level as well as the specific services such as MySQL, Apache/lighttpd/nginx.
- We report back to you on our findings, and prioritise work. There might be improvements/changes that should be implemented immediately (within the initial review timeframe), and some that can be addressed later (additional ad-hoc work, or over time within a subscription arrangement).
- We do the urgent work, as agreed in the prior step and within the agreed timeframe/cost.
- We review the gains with you, and discuss future steps and arrangements.
