Kubernetes: The Path to Open Source DBaaS

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 yet it is typically done using proprietary software and tightly coupled to the cloud vendor. Percona believes Kubernetes finally enables a fully Open Source DBaaS Solution capable of being deployed anywhere Kubernetes runs - on the Public Cloud or in your private data center.

Engineering Data Reliably Using SLO Theory - Emily Gorcenski - Percona Live ONLINE 2020

Not so long ago, operations specialists worked much like today's data engineers do: with specialized skills, they were the people who kept sites running, who responded to emergencies, and who—unfortunately—spent much of their time dealing with incidents and other "fires." When the DevOps revolution came, this began to change.

Better tools, better practices, and better culture shaped how Ops folks worked. A subset of that DevOps...

Revision Control for Structured Data - Gavin Mendel Gleason - Percona Live ONLINE 2020

Revision control for source code - and especially Git - has caused a great leap forward in software development and delivery.

A similar revolution has not yet taken place in data. This talk will discuss the various #OpenSource #databases that are approaching this problem, the underlying architectures and challenges in building both a 'Git for data' and a 'GitHub for data'.

It will posit that to be a true collaboration and...

What If We Could Use Machine Learning Models as Tables? - Jorge Torres - Percona Live ONLINE 2020

In most machine learning tasks, one has to first organize data in some form and then turn it into information about the problem that needs to be solved.

One could say that the requirement to train many machine learning algorithms is information, not just data. Given that most of the world's structured and semi-structured data (information) lives in databases, it makes sense to bring ML capabilities straight to the databases...

Mastering Open Source Data Governance - Elisha Chitsenga - Percona Live ONLINE 2020

With ever-changing data environments—such as the cloud—and data requirements, data maintenance, and management are becoming increasingly complicated. Data also exists in many forms, such as text, numbers, graphics, and video. After data are made meaningful, they become information, which is crucial to the operation of an enterprise.

Data governance ensures that:

- Stakeholder needs, conditions, and options are evaluated...

Availability and Performance Tradeoffs in Global Database Deployments - Kevin Jernigan

A key benefit of cloud database services is the ability to launch a database in multiple regions with just a few clicks. Typically you’d use a global deployment to enable fast cross-region disaster recovery and to place the data close to your users for fast local performance.

A global deployment brings up questions such as: how many regions do I need? What RPO and RTO should I aim for? How do I design a scalable global...

Full Observability for Application Monitoring - Markus Strauss - Percona Live ONLINE 2020

Traditional APMs are great at helping troubleshoot custom app performance until problems start to reside within the database. Databases continue to be black boxes to most APMs and, therefore, black boxes to the developers and teams using them.

To gain full observability, you need to look at the application and associated apparition and services from the database point of view. Only then will you be able to find the root cause of...
