Wednesday, May 29, 2019

  • The State of Open Source Databases – It has been an exciting year in the open source database industry, with more choice, more cloud, and key changes in the industry. In his keynote address, Peter Zaitsev of Percona will dive into the key developments over the last year, including the most important open source database software releases, the significance of “cloud-native” solutions in a multi-vendor multi-cloud world, the new criticality of security challenges, the evolution of the open source software industry, and interesting new results from a new open source database survey.
  • MyRocks in the Real World – In this keynote, Yoshinori Matsunobu of Facebook will share interesting lessons learned from Facebook's production deployment and operations of MyRocks and future MyRocks development roadmaps.
  • MariaDB 10.4, Where We Are Now – Vicențiu Ciorbaru of the MariaDB Foundation will discuss the mission of the MariaDB Foundation and all of its achievements, while highlighting the latest contributions and functionality in MariaDB 10.4.
  • TiDB 3.0: What's New and What's Next – In this keynote, Ed Huang of PingCAP will discuss TiDB, a popular open source distributed NewSQL database, the current status of the TiDB community, the core features of TiDB 3.0, and the roadmap to make TiDB a true distributed HTAP database.

  • The State of the Dolphin – Where are we with MySQL 8.0 one year after GA? How was the journey? How has the Community impacted the roadmap? Frederic Descamps (LeFred) of Oracle will discuss this and more during his keynote session on MySQL and its commitment to  performance, stability and innovation.
  • The Color of Open Source Money — Are Some Open Source Business Models More Acceptable than Others? – In his keynote, Eero Teerikorpi of Continuent will examine and offer his perspective on a variety of open source business models and how they generate revenue.
  • Bringing DevOps To The Database – Baron Schwartz of VividCortex will discuss how applying DevOps principles and practices to the database can make software development processes faster, better and cheaper. This keynote will explore real-life stories of teams that successfully changed their entrenched culture, workflows and tooling to include DevOps — and others who tried. Topics include what research shows about DevOps, databases and company performance; as well as current and emerging trends in how we build/manage data tiers and the implications.
  • From Respected by DBAs to Loved by Application Developers – Ten years ago, Postgres was a safe and stable database, but not at the same level of user friendliness or rich feature set as other databases. This has changed. In his keynote, Craig Kerstiens of Microsoft will examine the Postgres journey and how it went from “respected by DBAs” to “beloved by application developers” and what the next five years may hold.

"Continuent, the MySQL Availability Company, and its team are looking forward to discussions with attendees on building geo-distributed, multi-master MySQL, MariaDB and Percona Server environments - on-premises, hybrid-cloud, and multi-cloud - using Tungsten Clustering,” said Eero Teerikorp, CEO of Continuent. “Continuent is best known for its state-of-the-art Continuous Operations, High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions and our team will be happy to share its knowledge on these topics and more at the conference."

"Today's data-intensive businesses require database observability to meet customer needs," said Amena Ali, CEO of VividCortex, a premier provider of database performance monitoring. "We're proud to provide industry leaders – including DraftKings, Etsy, GitHub, SendGrid, Yelp and hundreds of others – with deep insights into database workload and query response so engineers can improve application speed, efficiency, and up-time. We look forward to showing Percona Live attendees how VividCortex can help them troubleshoot database issues and streamline code deployment to increase customer satisfaction."
