MySQL at Facebook: lots and lots of small data

Trends in Architecture and Design
25 April 1:50pm - 2:40pm @ Ballroom G

MySQL has come a long way in the past few years. But technology alone isn't sufficient. This required a good product (MySQL), good people and good process. We will explain how MySQL has remained relevant for Facebook. Bring your questions too as Facebook's MySQL performance team will be on hand to answer questions.
This will start of with a short presentation at the start and then a Q & A with the four speakers.
