Overcoming the Challenges of Databases in the Cloud
Enterprises enjoy the flexibility and simplified operations of using the cloud, but applying those advantages to database workloads has proven challenging. Resource contention, cross-region failover, and elasticity at the data tier all introduce limitations. In addition, each cloud provider supports different services within their database offerings.
Please join Jon Tobin, Director of Solution Engineering at Percona, and Rob Masson, Solutions Architect Manager at ScaleArc, for a discussion about how to overcome these and other challenges. You’ll learn:
· The differences between IaaS and PaaS
· How AWS, Azure, and Google cloud stack up
· Tricks for managing smaller database instances
· Tips for achieving cross-region failover
· Best practices for hybrid deployments

Over the past 10 years I have been working with leading edge Product Companies that are defining the future of Computing. When at EMC I lead an Advanced Development Team that explored the capabilities of new technologies and helped to drive innovation within a World Leader of Information management Technologies. I also was the Director of Research on the east Coast and interfaced with researchers at MIT, Harvard and Boston University among others.
Currently I am working with the world leader in Cloud Management Platforms, allowing our customers to manage assets easily and securely across disparate platforms seamlessly. I get to work hands-on with implementation teams and business drivers to help understand their needs, design their organizations and implement that vision into a game changing infrastructure and toolset.
