Jeremy Cole (Shopify) delivers the talk, "MySQL on Google Cloud: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly", on DAY 1 of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2019, 5/29, at Austin, TX.

We'll learn about some of the big wins that can be had in the cloud (such as elasticity and easy provisioning). But, we'll talk about the dark underbelly as well - and face some of the challenges to run a realistic MySQL installation in the cloud (errrr... performance?).
