MySQL community set to meet at Percona Live London 2014Tom Diederich
The countdown is on for Europe’s largest annual MySQL event, Percona Live London 2014. The two days of technical tutorials and sessions, November 3-4, will focus on the latest MySQL industry trends, news, best practices – and a look at what’s on the near- and long-term horizon within the global MySQL ecosystem.
Percona Live London 2014 will bring attendees up to date on key areas including MySQL 5.7, database security, database as a service (DBaaS), Hadoop and high availability (HA), disaster recovery, replication and backup, performance and scalability, WebScaleSQL and much, much more.
Team Oracle will be in London, led by Tomas Ulin, vice president of Oracle’s MySQL engineering team, who will explain why MySQL just keeps getting better with the latest news for the MySQL Database, MySQL Cluster, MySQL Workbench… and more. Oracle’s Luis Soares, principle software engineer, and Andrew Morgan, MySQL HA product management, will provide insight into what’s in the latest 5.7 development milestone release and also what’s going on in the labs… particularly around MySQL replication. Seize the opportunity to learn how to leverage MySQL 5.7 replication to grow your business from their session, “MySQL Replication: What’s New in 5.7 and Beyond.”
If anything keeps DBAs up at night it’s database security – especially with recent revelations of vulnerabilities like the POODLE SSLv3 security flaw (CVE-2014-3566) and “Bash Bug,” also known as Shellshock (CVE-2014-6271). Attendees will have the opportunity to talk face-to-face with database security expert David Busby of Percona, who will also lead a session titled, “Security it’s more than just your database you should worry about.”
Observe how to incorporate semi-synchronous replication to achieve failover – without data loss. Facebook’s Yoshinori Matsunobu and Santosh Banda will share how they did it at scale (across data centers) by extending MySQL internals along with some handy new self-made tools.
Meet the next-generation C connector for MySQL: libAttachSQL. It’s a new lightweight async C connector library for MySQL being developed from scratch by HP’s Advanced Technology Group. Andrew Hutchings, principal software engineer at Hewlett-Packard, will be on hand to share the latest on libAttachSQL.
Successful applications often become limited by MySQL performance. But tracking down and fixing those issues can be a huge drain on time and resources. Unless you think smart – spending time on what gives you the best return. Percona CEO Peter Zaitsev will explain how in his session, “Practical MySQL Performance Optimization.”
Percona Live London attendees will also learn from the real-life experiences of MySQL experts who share case studies. Shake hands with Art van Scheppingen, head of database engineering at Spil Games, who will explain how to serve out any page with an HA Sphinx environment.
Save yourself a quarter century by absorbing Tim Callaghan’s MySQL performance benchmarking tips, tricks and lessons learned. Tim, vice president of engineering at Tokutek, with share what he’s learned in the past 25 years maintaining the performance of database applications.
And of course there will be a MySQL community dinner! But be sure to register now for the dinner because space is limited – especially if you want to enjoy a ride to the restaurant on a vintage double-decker London bus (you do not need to attend the conference to join the dinner).
