How to Rock with MyRocks

MyRocks is a new storage engine from Facebook and available in Percona Server for MySQL. In what cases you will want to use it? We will check different workload and when MyRocks is most suitable for you. Also as for any new engine, it might be not trivial to set up and tune it properly, so we will review the most important settings to pay attention to.

MyRocks in the Real World

In this keynote, Yoshi will share interesting lessons learned from Facebook's production deployment and operations of MyRocks and future MyRocks development roadmaps. Vadim will discuss MyRocks in Percona Server for MySQL and share performance benchmarks tests from on-premises and cloud deployments.
