It’s a few weeks after AWS re:Invent 2018 and my head is still spinning from all of the information released at this year’s conference. This year I was able to enjoy a few sessions focused on Aurora deep dives. In fact, I walked away from the conference realizing that my own understanding of High Availability (HA), […]
Now that Database-as-a-service (DBaaS) is in high demand, there is one question regarding AWS services that cannot always be answered easily : When should I use Aurora and when RDS MySQL? DBaaS cloud services allow users to use databases without configuring physical hardware and infrastructure, and without installing software. I’m not sure if there is […]

In April and May, Percona will hold and participate in two OpenStack events: OpenStack Live and the OpenStack Summit. Join our talks at these events in Santa Clara and Vancouver for new insights into the MySQL operations of the core of OpenStack as well as the latest information on MySQL guest instances.Next week (April 13-14), Percona will host OpenStack Live at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Conveniently located for those in the Bay Area, this two day, user-focused event will cover many core aspects of OpenStack including Nova, Swift, Neutron, and Trove as well as related technologies like Ceph and Docker. (OpenStack Live passes include access to keynotes and the expo hall at the Percona Live MySQL Conference.)OpenStack Live will be a packed two days with 6 hands-on tutorials, 18 sessions, and keynotes and panel discussions featuring speakers from Facebook, EMC, ObjectRocket, Percona, Yahoo, VMware, Deep Information Sciences, and special guest, Steve Wozniak. Yes, the real Steve Wozniak.Of course I’m looking forward to my session, “An introduction to Database as a Service with an emphasis on OpenStack using Trove,” with Amrith Kumar, Founder and CTO of Tesora, on Tuesday from 11:30am – 12:20pm in Room 209. Some other topics you shouldn’t miss include:Tutorial: Deploying, Configuring and Operating OpenStack Trove Monday, April 13: 9:30am – 12:30pm in Room 203 Amrith Kumar (Tesora) and Sriram Kalyanasundaram (Tesora) will lead a 3 hour hands-on tutorial on Trove DBaaS. It’s rare to get such a focused tutorial on this key component of OpenStack and led by Tesora, major contributors to the Trove project. If you are even considering implementing Trove for your cloud, this is a must-attend class.Tutorial: How to Get Your Groove on with OpenStack Swift Object Storage Monday, April 13: 1:30pm – 4:30pm in Room 204 John Dickinson (OpenStack Swift), Manzoor Brar (SwiftStack), and Sergei Glushenko (Percona) will lead the audience on a journey into Swift, OpenStack’s object store project. John, the Swift “Project Team Lead” (PTL), and Manzoor will show you how to deploy a Swift cluster, use it with real applications, and, with the assistance of Sergei from Percona, how to properly backup MySQL databases to a Swift cluster.Sessions which I’d recommend attending are:Session: MySQL and OpenStack deep dive Tuesday, April 14: 11:30am – 12:20pm in Room 204 Peter Boros (Percona)Session: Deploying a OpenStack Cloud at Scale at Time Warner Cable Tuesday, April 14: 1:20pm – 2:10pm in Room 203 Matthew Fischer (Time Warner Cable), Clayton O’Neill (Time Warner Cable)Session: Designing a highly resilient Network Infrastructure for OpenStack Clouds Tuesday, April 14: 3:50pm – 4:40pm in Room 203 Pere Monclus (PLUMgrid)This is only a small sample of the tutorials and talks which you will hear at OpenStack Live. If you’re in the Bay Area next week and are interested in OpenStack or just want to learn more about some of the core components, register today to join us in Santa Clara from April 13-14. It will be well worth the investment.As a reminder, getting the most out of all tutorials at OpenStack Live requires that you bring your own laptop and are ready to dig into the technologies. Review the session descriptions for any materials that should be downloaded or installed prior to the event.Talks at OpenStack Summit VancouverNext month, Percona will join thousands in Vancouver for the next OpenStack Summit. In addition to helping those developing and running OpenStack to operate, optimize, and achieve high availability of the MySQL core, Percona MySQL experts will speak in two sessions.Deep Dive into MySQL replication with OpenStack Trove, and Kilo George Lorch (Percona) and Amrith Kumar (Tesora) will present an in depth exploration of MySQL replication with Trove and Kilo capabilities. This is a great way for anyone interested in OpenStack DBaaS to find out the latest information.Core Services MySQL Database Backup and Recovery to Swift Most OpenStack services rely heavily on MySQL, but how do you mitigate data loss in the event of a failed upgrade or unplanned outage? Kenny Gryp (Percona) and Chris Nelson (SwiftStack), experts in MySQL and storage, will discuss this challenge and provide advice and strategies for a fast, complete recovery from highly available storage sources.The team from Percona will again be found in the exhibit hall at booth T37. We’re looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones that rely on Percona software, such as the Galera-based Percona XtraDB Cluster and Percona XtraBackup, in their OpenStack clouds.The post More on OpenStack Live and our talks at OpenStack Summit Vancouver appeared first on MySQL Performance Blog.
Whether you’re looking at the overall MySQL ecosystem or the all-data management landscape, the choice of technologies has never been larger than it is in 2015. Having so many options is great but it also can be very hard to make a selection. I’m going to help narrow the list next week during a Webinar […]
