I have been working in the database industry for more than 25 years. Worked with embedded databases all the way through big enterprise applications. I worked for MySQL supporting the Sales efforts from 2001 through Sun's acquisition, until 2007. I then became a DBA for Pythian, OpenMarket and Bigdoor. Earlier this year I joined Tokutek and I am responsible for Technical Services, helping customers and prospects to run TokuDB.
