Vlad Fedorkov presents "Running MySQL in Amazon Cloud"


Vlad Fedorkov presents "Running MySQL in Amazon Cloud"

We have invited Vlad Fedorkov to discuss running MySQL in Amazon Cloud. Followed by a healthy Q and A.


  • 7:00 pm: meet, greet & eat
  • 7:15 pm: intros
  • 7:30 pm: main presentation


MySQL operations for Big Data installations can be quite complicated even in general installations. Cloud environments make some of them easier, but requires at the same time more attention to some operations which in other cases would be straightforward.

What needs to be done differently? How to perform diagnostics and make sure systems are doing well? How to prevent performance issues? Which RDS specific operations you'd like to avoid? And basically how to survive in cloud with big data installations and keep them fast.

As a side note, Vlad will also provide an annual update for SphinxSearch which is now has high availability support and lots of new bight and useful features.



Vlad has been helping people to scale their LAMP applications for more than 10 years, with a focus on performance optimization, architectural choices and deep knowledge of search and MySQL technologies. As a PalominoDB DBA, he provides high-profile remote DBA operational support and performance tuning on large, distributed open source database platforms. In the past he was worked with high-performance systems as a developer and team leader. In his off-duty time he enjoys traveling, bicycling and photography.
