Join Sveta Smirnova, MySQL Engineer at Percona, as she discusses modern solutions for modern database loads.

MySQL is famous for working well in highly performing environments. This is the reason why it is the most popular backend for web applications. But our view of what to call high-performance changes over the cycles. Every year we get faster data transfer speed; more devices, connected to the Internet; more users and, as a result, more data.

The challenges MySQL developers have to solve are getting harder over time.

In this session, Sveta will show how use-case scenarios are changing over 25 years of MySQL history. She will show what did MySQL engineers do to keep the product up to date and cover topics such as handling a large number of active connections and high volumes of data as well as how the latest MySQL versions handle increased load better.

After attending this session users who are currently on the older versions will know why an upgrade makes sense and those who already upgraded will learn how to use modern MySQL at its full speed.
