Creating mission-critical, production-ready systems from open source software isn’t always easy. Open source code provides a great “jumping-off point,” but your mission-critical business systems demand predictable, highly-available, scalable, supportable operating behavior that is ready to meet the data-driven performance demands of modern applications.

Open source databases are no different: creating a mission-critical MySQL database requires significant and innovated engineering efforts. Join this session to learn the process, practices, tricks and tools needed to support a production MySQL database deployment.


Peter Zaitsev (Percona CEO and Founder), and Vadim Tkachenko (Percona CTO and Founder) will provide insights into constructing high-performance MySQL databases, in addition to numerous Percona software engineers (people who actually do the work on Percona Server and Percona Tools).
