Join Percona’s CTO Vadim Tkachenko @VadimTk and Altinity’s Co-Founder, Alexander Zaitsev as they present Supercharge Your Analytics with ClickHouse on Thursday, September 14, 2017, at 10:00 am PDT / 1:00 pm EDT (UTC-7).
ClickHouse is a real-time analytical database system. Even though they’re only celebrating one year as open source software, it has already proved itself ready for serious workloads.
We will talk about ClickHouse in general, some of its internals and why it is so fast. ClickHouse works in conjunction with MySQL – traditionally weak for analytical workloads – and this presentation demonstrates how to make the two systems work together.
There will also be an in-person presentation on How to Build Analytics for 100bn Logs a Month with ClickHouse at the
#SFMySQL meetup Wednesday, September 13, 2017. RSVP here.
Alexander Zaitsev will also be speaking at Percona Live Europe 2017 on Building Multi-Petabyte Data Warehouses with ClickHouse on Wednesday, September 27 at 11:30 am. Use the promo code “SeeMeSpeakPLE17” for 15% off.
