Subject: Percona Live 2018

I’d like your approval to attend Percona Live 2018, April 23-25, 2018 in Santa Clara, California. The Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2018 is the premier event for the diverse and active open source database community, as well as businesses that develop and use open source database software. Tackling subjects such as time series databases, PostgreSQL, RocksDB analytics, architecture and design, security, operations, scalability and performance, Percona Live provides in-depth discussions on high-availability, IoT, cloud, big data and other database business issues. Attendees include DBAs, sysadmins, developers, architects, CTOs, CEOs, and vendors from around the world.

Percona Live is attended by some of the biggest industry leaders: Google, Facebook, Red Hat and Intel (to name a few). The event has keynote talks, daily sessions on the most current open source and database topics, database and open source tutorials and other community interactions. Also included this year are MySQL and MongoDB crash courses, where Percona and other industry experts will demonstrate the fundamentals of MySQL or MongoDB tools and techniques. It’s a rare opportunity to learn how the best and brightest increase productivity and lower the cost of deployment - from databases to cloud computing.

In addition to industry contacts, hands-on training and knowledge sessions, I’ll be able to set up in-person time with Percona consulting, product and support experts, to learn essential techniques and advanced tips for scaling and optimizing our systems for trouble-free, time-saving performance.

This experience is a great way to help us maximize both the performance and return on investment of our database deployment.

Here are some of the comments from past attendees regarding the conference:

“This was the first conference that I ever attended . . . I was extremely pleased with how accommodating people were and how good the sessions were. As long as the option is available next year I will definitely be attending the conference.” – CTO
