Cost Optimizations Through MySQL Performance Optimizations
Every day hundreds of millions of dollars are wasted by allowing improperly tuned or misconfigured systems, misunderstood infrastructure, and inefficient IT operations to live and thrive in data centers around the globe. There are both direct and indirect costs associated with allowing these unhealthy systems to continue to exist. Small performance improvements can lead to huge overall reductions in both direct costs and resource costs. During this session, we will show you how small gains in performance impact the cost of your infrastructure. We will provide you with real world examples of where small improvements saved companies hundreds of thousands of dollars. We will also walk through the most overlooked and costly performance and management traps companies fall into, giving you the information and tools to avoid falling into a performance and operations money pit.
