Mark Callaghan 這篇倒是沒提到什麼技術的東西，主要是講最近 MySQL 的兩大 conference，一個是 Oracle 的 Oracle Open World，另外一個是 Percona 的 Percona Live Amsterdam 2016，然後用了 benchmarketing 這個酸酸的詞 XDDD：「Peak benchmarketing season for MySQL」。
My joke is that each of these makes a different group happy: performance -> marketing, usability -> developers, manageability -> operations, availability -> end users, efficiency -> management.
One last disclaimer. If you care about read-mostly/in-memory workloads then InnoDB is probably an excellent choice. MyRocks can still be faster than InnoDB for in-memory workloads. That is more likely when the bottleneck for InnoDB is page write-back performance. So write-heavy/in-memory can still be a winner for MyRocks.
