A Database Month event:

ParElastic brings the flexibility of the cloud to existing MySQL databases. Using unmodified MySQL (or Percona, RDS, etc.,) ParElastic lets you dynamically add and remove both data storage and query processing capability to your database, without having to rewrite your application to use sharding or alternative database technologies. It provides the thing you've always wanted without complications- a relational database that can scale up and down, beyond the size of the largest individual server. In the presentation, we will let you in on the inner workings of ParElastic.

Amrith Kumar, Founder & CTO, ParElastic

Amrith is a founder and the chief technology officer of ParElastic. He brings over two decades of experience delivering industry-leading products for companies specializing in enterprise storage applications, fault tolerant high performance systems and massively parallel databases.
