Next week I’ll be visiting Moscow to talk at Highload++. The conference will take place during Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd at the Radisson hotel. I will be giving my personal version of an indexing talk that my colleagues have given in meetups and conferences in the US.
Highload++ conference is targeted to address the issues of complex high traffic web properties. Most of these sites depend on databases to deliver their content, record the traffic and report the application activities in real time. As I learned early in my career at MySQL, the database schema and in particular the indexing strategy, are critical to achieve the highest possible performance out of the database. I’ll be reviewing the basic strategies to define the right indexes. I will also cover TokuDB’s Fractal Tree® and Cluster indexes features.
I am also happy to see that the MySQL community will be well represented by other fellow speakers like Colin Charles and Sergei Golubchik of MariaDB, Lars Thalmann of the MySQL team at Oracle, Peter Zaitsev of Percona, Danil Zubrisky of Pythian and many other old friends.
It’s my first visit to Russia and I’m looking forward to the experience.
