In this session, Brian Aker, Fellow at Hewlett-Packard and Lead Developer on the community-driven Drizzle open source database, will explore how the advent of cloud computing is changing the MySQL ecosystem. The evolution of cloud infrastructure fosters expansion in open source based technology, allowing cloud customers to focus more on building new applications and growing their businesses instead of managing deployment of databases. We’ll explore how this affects the evolution of MySQL and other open source databases, particularly with respect to how databases are designed (e.g., multi-tenancy vs. single tenancy).
