Please join Percona CEO Peter Zaitsev as he presents “Best Practices for Migrating to Open Source Databases” on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 at 11:00 AM PDT (UTC-7).
This is a high-level webinar that covers the history of enterprise open source database use. It addresses both the advantages companies see in using open source database technologies as well as the fears and reservations they might have.
In this webinar, we will look at how to address such concerns to help get a migration commitment. We’ll cover picking the right project, selecting the right organizational team to manage the migration, and developing the right path to maximize migration success (from a technical and organizational standpoint).
