My name is Justin and I live in Mountain View, CA. I'm a systems architect. I develop large scale, complex, highly available Internet infrastructure. I am a former consultant with Serene, Proven Scaling, and Percona. I was Yahoo's sole platform engineering DBA at Yahoo!, where I maintained the MySQL packages and made improvements to MySQL. I am the author of Shard-Query, a MPP scaling solution for one or more MySQL servers which can match or even outperform RedShift in query performance on the star schema benchmark. I also author Flexviews, the only incrementally refreshable materialized view solution for MySQL.
