Etsy's Migration to SSDs

The talk will include a short overview of the database architecture at Etsy and the rationale for making a hardware change. Following that, it will go into hardware planning and selection, cover the actual consolidation and migration and close with a review on the benefits. Come by if you're interested in learning more about how to plan migrations of this type or want to know more about how Etsy manages data.
Staff MySQL Operations Engineer, Etsy.com
In 1999, I fell into this MySQL thing and been going strong ever since. I'm currently a Senior MySQL Operations Engineer at Etsy, Inc. Prior to Etsy, I was a MySQL wizard at GoDaddy working with 10k+ instances. I like sleeping without being paged, making databases run really fast and I occasionally get on a soapbox on monitoring.
