50 minutes conference


Relational databases have a debilitating flaw: No matter how rigorously you stay on top of tuning, they slow to a crawl when hit with large-scale data and traffic conditions—driving you crazy while putting your applications and business at risk. GEMServers, a white-glove WordPress hoster whose business depends on delivering high performance at scale, couldn’t afford that risk. GEMServers’ founder will describe his quest to find a solution, and why and how application-aware, adaptive MySQL delivers high-velocity data streaming alongside real-time analytics, at scale. He’ll explain how, by using machine learning to predictively adapt and continuously self-tune, GEMServers enables optimal performance under all conditions. Get tips on how your business can easily obtain the seemingly unreal results GEMServers gained, 39x faster queries, 200% faster page loads and an 80% reduction in database size.
