Experience level: 
50 minutes conference is ranked around #300 - #370 in website traffic and we are the facebook when it comes to bodybuilding. I am the Mysql DBA at since 2009 and have found it to be a very interesting and challenging role. I am in the Site Operations Department and an equally responsible member to keep the site up and running. As a Mysql DBA I have the pleasure of working with a team of highly talented individuals. A little about is a not just about bodybuilders. It is for everyone who wants to lead a healthy lifestyle. And hence we have visitors of all age groups and anything that has to do with living fit. We have a very busy forum and if you search for "Misc" on google we are the first :). Our community application is called bodyspace ( and we have close to 5 million users maintaining their body profiles. Our store is one of the busiest with a wide range of supplements for anyone. Apart from these we have iphone andriod apps, workout trackers and a pleanty of other apps. We are using Percona xtradb server 5.1 since the last 2 years and were using Percona xtradb server 5.0 prior to that. I am a keen follower of Percona's website and mysqlperformanceblog is one of my favourites. I am currenlty working on intersting projects like becnhmarking various database servers on different hardwares and Upgrading to Percona 5.5. I would like to share some of my experiences with Percona given an opportunity and discuss the technical architecture we use to keep our customers happy. I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to interact with other people out in the market and learn from their experiences. Thanks in advance.
