This Week in Data with Colin Charles 35: Percona Live 18 final countdown and a roundup of recent news

Colin CharlesJoin Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

Percona Live is just over a week away — there’s an awesome keynote lineup, and you really should register. Also don’t forget to save the date as Percona Live goes to Frankfurt, Germany November 5-7 2018! Prost!

In acquisitions, we have seen MariaDB acquire MammothDB and Idera acquire Webyog.

Some interesting Amazon notes: Amazon Aurora Continues its Torrid Growth, More than Doubling the Number of Active Customers in the Last Year (not sure I’d describe it as torrid but this is great for MySQL and PostgreSQL), comes with a handful of customer mentions. In addition, there have already been 65,000 database migrations on AWS. For context, in late November 2017, it was 40,000 database migrations.

    I would count 2X/year as torrid. That is a lot of stress on the team and they seem to be doing a great job — not much bad news about it.

    And here is where British English and American English differ for the word torrid! Thanks for pointing this out, as I just defined the word torrid.
