Thanks to CloudSigma for inviting me to their headquarters, for scheduling a company’s party the same night of my arrival (it was really great guys!), for the great discussions on technology and for allowing me to benchmark the performance of the new Intel Xeon CPUs in a 4xCPU super Server.
|They were so nice to send me that detail after the publication of my Cassandra’s wrapper to use the database from PHP without Thrift.|
At that time there was no driver for PHP.
I also created a HTTP Gateway Universal Cassandra Driver in Python 2 : cassandradriver.com.
Later I contributed fixing bugs to an Open Source native PHP driver.
- Instructions on how to use Cassandra CQLSÍ with PHP
- Instructions and sample code to write a PHP cron that stores data to Casandra
I would also like to thank to David Lebrón, who submitted his master using CQLSÍ, for contacting me and letting me know that all the class at Kennesaw State University was using my solution for creating websites with Cassandra. :)
I was really glad to help you guys. :)
Thanks to CloudSigma for sending me a wonderful bottle of Scottish whisky to thank that I analyzed their Cloud solution from cmips.net
I shared it with my Team.
Thanks also for providing the platform for free, so I can run extensive tests and for providing special prices afterwards, to move my projects there.
Later on January 2014 I was invited by them to lunch and to visit their infrastructure in the States.
In fact, I helped them to rack the first components of their, then new, Data Center in Silicon Valley but that was a secret I could not reveal. ;)
Then I saw that they use really amazing technologies for Compute and Network to provide the best performance. Cool.
Note: We build a nice relation and later in time I helped them professionally.
Thanks to Facebook for inviting me to travel to the States and visiting the campus at Menlo Park, Silicon Valley, California to interview for a SDM in SRE (Manager position at the Production Engineering Team).
Glad you liked my ideas. ;) Thanks guys, you were really nice!.
And I’m sorry you had outages but I told you then, and all my friends and family remember me every time that something happens in FB/Insta/whatsapp: “if they had hired you, those outages would had not happened. You would had not allowed it to happen”, that certain things have to be done differently.
