This keynote highlights the collaborative journey PaddyPowerBetfair and Percona have taken through the adoption of MySQL within the PPB enterprise. The keynote focuses on how Percona has assisted PPB in adopting MySQL, and how PPB has used this partnership to deliver a full DBaaS for MySQL solution on Openstack. (This case study will be presented in full later in the day with a 50 minute presentation by the PPB DBA and cloud automation teams.)
