Please join Percona’s Jon Tobin, Director of Solution Engineering at Percona, and Rob Masson, Solutions Architect Manager at ScaleArc, on Thursday, January 26, 2017, at 9:00 am PST / 12:00 pm EST (UTC-8) for their webinar “Overcoming the Challenges of Databases in the Cloud.”
Enterprises enjoy the flexibility and simplified operations of using the cloud, but applying those advantages to database workloads has proven challenging. Resource contention, cross-region failover and elasticity at the data tier all introduce limitations. In addition, cloud providers support different services within their database offerings.
Jon and Rob’s webinar is a discussion on how to overcome these databases in the cloud challenges. You’ll learn:
- The differences between IaaS and PaaS
- How AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud stack up
- Tricks for managing smaller database instances
- Tips for achieving cross-region failover
- Best practices for hybrid deployments
