Join Percona’s Chief Evangelist Colin Charles on Thursday, November 3, 2016, at 10 am PDT/ 1:00pm EDT (UTC-7) as he presents “The MySQL Ecosystem in 2016.”
MySQL is a unique adult (now 21 years old) in many ways. It supports plugins. It supports storage engines. It is also owned by Oracle, thus birthing two branches of the popular opensource database: Percona Server and MariaDB Server. It also once spawned a fork: Drizzle. Lately, a consortium of web scale users (think a chunk of the top ten sites out there) have spawned WebScaleSQL.
You’re a busy DBA having to maintain this mix of technologies. Or you’re a CIO planning to choose one branch. How do you go about picking? Supporting multiple databases? Find out more in this talk. We will also take a deep-dive into what feature differences exist between MySQL/Percona Server/MariaDB/WebScaleSQL, and how distributions package the various databases differently. Within the hour, we’ll inform you about the past, the present and hopefully make you knowledgeable enough to know what to pick in the future.
Note, there will also be coverage of the various trees around WebScaleSQL, like the Facebook tree, the Alibaba tree as well as the Twitter tree.
