In this keynote we'll illustrate how cloud data management problems divide into the classic buckets of known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns. MySQL users can use this classification to build more robust systems. The MySQL community is already responding with better management tools designed to keep our favorite DBMS relevant for decades to come.
