As a non volatile memory, flash is revolutionizing data center architectures, improving application performance by bridging the gap between DRAM and disk. Future non volatile memories promise performance even closer to DRAM. While flash adoption first established a foothold as a disk replacement, data center architectures are now evolving to take advantage of flash as a new memory tier in both... [read more]
MySQL is used by many organizations for mission-critical applications where downtime is very costly. MySQL in the Cloud is also growing in relevance and usage. During this panel discussion we’ll discuss the challenges of operating MySQL at scale in this changing technology landscape. Topics such as high availability clusters, multi-datacenter replication, and data storage will be discussed in... [read more]
