Percona Live 2018 Call for Papers is Open!

The Call for Papers for Percona Live 2018 Open Source Database Conference is now open! Submissions will be accepted through December 22, 2017.
 

Our theme is “Championing Open Source Databases” with topics of MySQL, MongoDB and other open source databases, including PostgreSQL, time series databases and RocksDB. Sessions tracks include Developers, Operations and Business/Case Studies.

 

We’re looking forward to your submissions! We want proposals that cover the many aspects of application development using all open source databases, as well as new and interesting ways to monitor and manage database environments. Did you just embrace open source databases this year? What are the technical and business values of moving to or using open source databases? How did you convince your company to make the move? Was there tangible ROI?
 

Possible topics include:

 

Application development. How are you building applications using open source databases to power the data layers? What languages, frameworks and data models help you to build applications that your customers love? Are you using MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, time series or other databases? 
 

Database performance. What database issues have you encountered while meeting new application and new workload demands? How did they affect the user experience? How did you address them? Are you using WiredTiger or a new storage engine like RocksDB? Have you moved to an in-memory engine? Let us know about the solutions you have found to make sure your applications can get data to users and customers.
 

DBaaS and PaaS. Are you using a Database as a Service (DBaaS) in the public cloud, or have you rolled out your own? Are you on AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure or RackSpace/ObjectRocket? Are you using a database in a Platform as a Service (PaaS) environment? Tell us how it’s going.
 

High availability. Are your applications a crucial part of your business model? Do they need to be available at all times, no matter what? What database challenges have you come across that impacted uptime, and how did you create a high availability environment to address them?
 

Scalability. Has scaling your business affected database performance, user experience or the bottom line? How are you addressing the database environment workload as your business scales? Let us know what technologies you used to solve issues.
 

Distributed databases. Are you moving toward a distributed model? Why? What is your plan for replication and sharding?
 

Observability and monitoring. How do we design open source database deployment with observability in mind? Are you using Elasticsearch or some other analysis tool? What tools are you using to monitor data? Grafana? Prometheus? Percona Monitoring and Management? How do you visualize application performance trends for maximum impact?
 

Container solutions. Do you use Docker, Kubernetes or other containers in your database environment? What are the best practices for using open source databases with containers and orchestration? Has it worked out for you? Did you run into challenges and how did you solve them?
 

Security. What security and compliance challenges are you facing and how are you solving them?
 

Migrating to open source databases. Did you recently migrate applications from proprietary to open source databases? How did it work out? What challenges did you face, and what obstacles did you overcome? What were the rewards?
 

What the future holds. What do you see as the “next big thing”? What new and exciting features just released? What’s in your next release? What new technologies will affect the database landscape? AI? Machine learning? Blockchain databases? Let us know what you see coming.
