Load Balancing Database Connections and the end of RAID 7 June 2007

I just read a posting at FeedBlog about MySQL and the end of RAID. It reminded me of some earlier articles I read somewhere about Google’s use of a database to provide redundancy and failover for their systems. I believe this is a very attractive idea while not necessarily believing that it spells the end for RAID.

The writer of the blog posting linked to a project about pooling DB connections with a load balancing JDBC driver which looks very cool and I am totally interested in reading more about that. I believe this could resolve several issues that we constantly run into at the University. Trying to balance funds for server systems, storage space, enterprise software, and time to develop hearty solutions is always a difficult task within our environment seems like.

Thanks, Kevin, for writing on the tubes.
