PrimeBase XT (PBXT) is a transactional storage engine for MySQL which can be loaded dynamically by the pluggable storage engine API of MySQL 5.1. It has been designed for modern, web-based, high concurrency environments. Full MVCC (multi-version concurrency control) support and a unique "write-once" strategy make PBXT particularly effective under heavy update loads.
In my presentation tomorrow at the MySQL Conference I plan to talk about some aspects of PBXT that I have never spoken about before. Here are the details of the presentation:

Of course nothing about the engine is really a secret, if you are prepared to read the code. But who does that right? I am pretty sure that not even developers of other engines have spent much time (if any) on that.
But really, there are some gems stuck away in those X 1000 lines of code, and I plan to pick out a few tomorrow and show them to you. So don't miss it! :)
