Thanks for your time Mark, very fascinating information.

Mark, thanks for giving us a good look at how facebook has leveraged mysql for it's data needs. I found the Q&A very helpful to not only hear how facebook leverages mysql, but to also hear your thoughts on the future of SQL and NoSQL.

Great discussion of the MySQL ecosystem both in and out of Facebook.

Thanks for taking the time to come visit and share with us. It is very interesting to hear how Facebook has taken MySQL well beyond where any RDBMS has gone. And to think that some people are still skeptical about using MySQL or any open source database.

Also thank you for answering my questions about the influence of NoSQL within Facebook, at least as well as you could without sharing company secrets.
