[Links of the Day] 04/01/2017 : ProxySQL, Smudge Golang lib, Hypervisor costs comparisons

  • ProxySQL : SQL proxy fir MySQL ( or any other fork like Percona and Mariadb) [Github]
  • Smudge : Go library providing group member discovery, status dissemination and failure detection using the SWIM epidemic protocol. This is really cool as provide a building block for an equivalent to consul but with a very low footprint ressource and network wise. 
  • Hypervisor costs : interesting comparison of hypervisor solution costs. The surprising number is that contrary to popular belief VMware is not the most expansive but Hyperv is on a apple to apple comparison. However I am not sure that this hold true when you are talking for a complete solution.
