Operations -> SRE -> AIOps For Data Professionals

Our world is moving fast, and data is piling up. There was a time when DBA managed a few machines, then a few hundred, and now each DBA needs to handle thousands. To enable this, we are going to talk about how we used to monitor, then how SRE has changed the rules. We will also cover why your DBA is still needed even in SRE, but the function is different. Finally, we will break into migrating and enabling SRE functions with Machine Learning or AIOps. This will include a discussion on what AIOps for DB's is not, and how you can get there.

* Classic Database Operations and Deployment
* SRE Concepts for the DBA
* Automation DBA tasks and investigations
* Monitoring of Yesterday
* Automating Alert Handling
* Machine Learning and how it helps SRE
* What not to expect from ML and AIOps
* Talk about Monasca as a good architecture template

MongoDB: Where Are We Going From Here?

MySQL JSON Support
Open source reject license
MySQL Group Replication
MongoDB transactions
Distros dropping MongoDB package

This year has seen a good deal of changes and challenges in the MongoDB Space. But where are things going? We are going to cover the most common questions I get asked even today.

What are my risks if I keep using it?
Is MySQL/Postgres Proxy, replication, and HA finally catching up?
Why is JSON support not the only thing to consider?
Will MongoDB lose my data?

Past these I will be discussing the ecosystem as a whole, and how I see the next few years shaping out. While this talk is most helpful for business leaders and architects, for DBAs and engineers it will also help you decide what to focus on in your career for the emerging technological future.
