MySQL on Google Cloud: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Wednesday 2:00 PM - 2:50 PM

@ Texas 7


50 minutes conference



Running MySQL in the cloud isn't magic - it can be brilliant, but it can also be a real challenge. We'll learn about some of the big wins that can be had in the cloud (such as elasticity and easy provisioning). But, we'll talk about the dark underbelly as well - and face some of the challenges to run a realistic MySQL installation in the cloud (errrr... performance?).
