Percona Live MySQL Webinar

Fernando Ipar, Senior Consultant

While traditionally MySQL has been deployed on Linux hosts, a significant percentage of users are running it on Microsoft Windows. Accordingly, many MySQL DBAs with a Unix/Linux sysadmin background can feel lost working within this environment.

Topics covered include:

  • Biggest differences in running MySQL on Windows vs. Linux
  • How to feel more at home as a systems administrator in this environment
  • Percona Toolkit and Windows: what works and what doesn't

In addition, the information presented will also be useful for experienced Windows administrators who may not have enough MySQL knowledge.
