Sponsor Percona Live Open Source Database Conference

Featured MariaDB Speakers


MariaDB is a fork of MySQL that is developed and maintained by some of the original creators of MySQL (most notably, Michael "Monty" Widenius). Learn about how MariaDB promises to be a drop-in replacement for MySQL, with better performance and more flexibility in our MariaDB track.

These sessions tackle subjects on analytics, architecture and design, security, operations, scalability and performance for MariaDB.

Below are the talks covering MariaDB at this year’s conference.

    This presentation will discuss the features of MySQL/MariaDB that when enabled and used improve the default usage of MySQL. Many cloud-based applications fail to - Using appropriate filesystem permissions - Using TLS/SSL for connections - Using TLS/SSL with MySQL replication - Using external authentication plugins (LDAP, PAM, Kerberos) - Encrypting all your data at rest - Monitoring you

    Flashback: - Makes use of the binary log to roll back an instance, database or table to a previous snapshot. - Is available as a first release is MariaDB 10.2.4/RDS MySQL 5.6. - Is implemented on the server-level, so supports all storage engines. - Makes use of full image format binary logs. - Is currently a mysqlbinlog feature (the --flashback option) The talk will discuss how Flashback

    The new MariaDB Server 10.2 release is out. It has some interesting new features, but beyond just a feature overview we need to look at how to use some of them. Learn about window functions, common table expressions, finer grained CREATE USER statements, and a lot more -- including getting mysqlbinlog up to parity with MySQL.

    In the last 24 months, MySQL/MariaDB replication speed has improved a lot, thanks to parallel replication. MySQL and MariaDB Server have different types of parallel replication; in this talk, I present the different implementations which will allow us to understand their limitations and tuning parameters.

    MySQL/MariaDB replication is asynchronous. You can make replication faster by using better hardware (faster CPU, more RAM, or quicker disks), or you can use parallel replication to remove it single-threaded limitation; but lag can still happen.

    This presentation uses an abstracted use case from real life to show a migration from MySQL to MariaDB to Percona Server and how the impact of these 3 different choices and how the three different databases reacted on the different platforms used, both in resource management and performance.
