Hardware Acceleration of MySQL

Hi All,

My company is considering a project with other commercial and academic organizations. We work in the field of Reconfigurable Computing (RC). RC is basically computing with Field Programmable Gate Arrays, which allows for potentially huge performance increases in algorithms that are computationally intense. This increase is achieved primarily through paralization of algorithmic functions at a very fine-grained level, in hardware. The project we are considering is to 1) Identify performance bottlenecks in MySQL, 2) Prioritize the bottleneck list based on projected improvement numbers for a parallel hardware version and 3) implement the hardware acceleration on an instance of MySQL running on a Cray XD1 supercomputer (which has reconfigurable hardware embedded in it).

Who, within the MySQL community, would be best to discuss this with? Is anyone currently profiling the code to identify key bottlenecks? Would there be any way to include a MySQL developer in such a project?

Hope to hear from you soon,

Tyler Reed
