Speaking at Percona Live London 2012: Choosing Hardware for MySQL

Another Percona Live event is coming up, this time in London on the 3rd and 4th of December. I’m sure it is going to be as awesome as it was last year.

This year, I will talk about ‘Choosing Hardware For MySQL‘.

Of course, the most important hardware components will be covered: CPU, Memory, Network, Disk Subsystem and also the Cloud.
I will try to help attendees better understand how MySQL uses hardware (and how it does not), how it optimizes random IO operations on disk, what scalability means for MySQL, what it’s limitations are and so on…
Want more? Just attend!

    Hey Kenny, will you be providing slides (… or even better, video?) after the talk for those of us unfortunately stuck in another country?

  2. Kenny Gryp says:

    @Tim\ G: Yes, slides will be available on the conference website after the conference is over. Not sure if the talk will be recorded.

    Hi Kenny

    Enjoyed your talk on this topic very much. Any news on getting your slides posted up somewhere. My notes are very vague.
