At Square we operate several thousand MySQL instances to power a financial network, from payments to payroll. In a word: money. "Mission-critical" isn't critical enough. Come learn how we operate MySQL with billions of dollars at stake. We'll look at everything: configuration, management, monitoring, tooling, security, high-availability, replicaiton, etc.
Daniel has been working with MySQL for over ten years. Currently at Square helping to operate and automate its MySQL fleet, he was previously at Percona for eight years developing MySQL tooling. He has presented at Percona Live and other conferences, recieved a MySQL community awarded, published and contributed to various open-source projects, and blogged for many years, like the once infamous hackmysql.com.
