Tricks and Treats for MySQL in Amazon Cloud

Join NYPHP at AppSec 2013 - Attend exhibits for FREE:


They're here... MySQL and Amazon that is. While noSQL's life force invades our daily development, the MySQL ancients still haunt us with a new bag of tricks.

But the treats can't come from just watching TV, so we've conjured back database shaman Vladimir Fedorkov as our medium to the other side of MySQL, RDS, and to the beast itself, big data.

This October we dust off the cobwebs and go into the light for some ghost-busting to ensure that your next database deployment... isn't built on an ancient burial ground.

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.

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. In his off-duty time he enjoys traveling, bicycling and photography.

    Suspenders is a large restaurant / bar, is there a room or something we need to go to? are the minimum food / drink per person?

    • Maxim R.

      Last time I was at this place for such an event buying food/drink was completely optional (but understandably encouraged).

      Yes - we're in the back room - food/drink is encouraged, but optional
