The Cloud is Inevitable - Sugu Sougoumarane

There is a reason why the cloud is gaining popularity. On one hand, software is growing and getting more complex. In contrast, the computing power of a single machine has more or less maxed out. The only way to keep growing is by distributing our software across machines. It is only a matter of time before this requirement starts to affect the databases. For many, it already has.

To face these changes, we have to evolve both in...

Why Public Database as a Service is Prime for Open Source Distribution - Peter Zaitsev

The database market is changing drastically in ways no one imagined 5 years ago. Database vendors are moving away from traditional deployment methods and embracing database as a service (DBaaS) as the default method to offer their database technologies to consumers and users. Much of this movement has been built because of the success and popularity of DBaaS offerings by major cloud vendors. Unfortunately, this is leading to a new era...

The Path to Open Source DBaaS with Kubernetes

Join Peter Zaitsev, Percona CEO, as he discusses DBaas and Kubernetes.

DBaaS is the fastest growing way to deploy databases. It is fast and convenient and it helps to reduce toil a lot, yet it is typically done using proprietary software and tightly coupled to the cloud vendor. We believe Kubernetes finally allows us to build fully Open Source DBaaS Solution capable to be deployed anywhere Kubernetes runs - on the Public Cloud or...
