How to Turbo-charge your MySQL Performance using Flash Storage

Today many organizations are moving their MySQL deployments from traditional spindle-based storage to flash-based solid-state storage for improved performance and scalability. The promise of database server consolidation, improved space/energy efficiency, and decreased system and operational costs is driving this migration. But IT professionals are cautious about this transition because the best way to configure and manage MySQL on flash-based storage is not widely known. Join Virident Systems and Percona for a free webinar to find out how to succeed with MySQL on flash storage.

Vadim Tkachenko
Vadim leads Percona's Development group which produces the Percona Server, Percona XtraDB, and Percona XtraBackup. He is an expert in LAMP performance, especially optimizing MySQL and InnoDB internals to take full advantage of modern hardware using his multi-threaded programming background. Source code patches authored by Vadim have been incorporated by Oracle Corporation and its predecessors into the mainstream MySQL and InnoDB products. At Percona, Vadim also designs no-gimmicks benchmark tests of hardware, filesystems, storage engines, and databases. He focuses on real-world performance and functionality scenarios that are often missed by standard benchmarks. Most benchmarks are done on a sponsored basis for vendors who wish to validate their product's worthiness, with the unedited results published on the MySQL Performance Blog (if the sponsor allows). Vadim actively consults for many Alexa Top 1000 web properties, but has an increasing focus on hardware appliances and storage engines. He is leading Percona's emerging expertise in solid-state storage with his launch of the SSD Performance Blog. Vadim co-founded Percona in 2006 after four years in the High Performance Group within the official MySQL Support Team. He serves on Percona's Executive Team. He also co-authored the book, High Performance MySQL 3rd Edition, with Percona's Peter Zaitsev and Baron Schwartz. Previously he founded a web development company in his native Ukraine. He now lives in California with his wife and their two children.
