Welcome to the third (and final) day of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2017, and the third (and final) set of Percona Live keynotes! The enthusiasm hasn’t waned here at Percona Live, and we had a full house on Thursday morning!
Day three of the conference kicked off with three keynotes talks, and ended with the Community Awards Ceremony:
Xinyao Hu (AirBnB)
In this talk, Xinyao introduced Airbnb’s change data change system, Spinaltap. He briefly covered its design, and focused on various use cases inside Airbnb. These use cases covered both online serving production and offline large distributed batch processing.
Peter Zaitsev (Percona)
Peter Zaitsev, CEO of Percona, discussed the growth and adoption of open source databases, and Percona’s commitment to remaining an unbiased champion of the open source database ecosystem. Percona remains committed to providing open source support and solutions to its customers, users and the community. He also provided updates and highlighted exciting new developments in Percona Server software for MySQL and MongoDB.
Jean-François Gagné (Booking.com)
Jean-François Gagné presented a fascinating talk about using a metric for observing Booking.com’s system health: bookings per second. It wasn’t a technical deep-dive (not MySQL- or Linux-related) but it is one of the most important metric Booking.com has to detect problems (and customer behavior) on the website. Many things impact this metric, including the time of the day, the day of the week or the season of the year.
Daniel Nichter (Square), Emily Slocombe (SurveyMonkey)
The MySQL Community Awards initiative is an effort to acknowledge and thank individuals and corporations for their contributions to the MySQL ecosystem. It is a from-the-community, by-the-community and for-the-community effort. Awards are given for Community Contributor, Application, and Corporate Contributor. More information can be found here: http://mysqlawards.org.
This year’s winners were:
- Community: René Cannaò, Simon Mudd, Shlomi Noach
- Application: Sysbench, Gh-ost

Congrats to the winners, the entire open source community, and to all the Percona Live attendees this year. There are still sessions today, check them out.
