I am proud to announce href="http://www.percona.com/live/openstack-live-2015/" >OpenStack Live, a new annual conference that will run in parallel with the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo at the href="http://www.percona.com/live/openstack-live-2015/venue" >Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley. The inaugural event, OpenStack Live 2015, is April 13-14, 2015. We are lining up a strong href="http://www.percona.com/live/openstack-live-2015/conference-committee">Conference Committee and are now accepting href="http://www.percona.com/live/openstack-live-2015/user/register">tutorial and breakout session speaking proposals through November 9.

OpenStack Live will emphasize the essential elements of making OpenStack work better with emphasis on the critical role of MySQL and the value of Trove. You’ll hear about the hottest current topics, learn about operating a high-performing OpenStack deployment, and listen to top industry leaders describe the future of the OpenStack ecosystem. We are seeking speaking proposals on the following topics:

  • Performance Optimization of OpenStack
  • OpenStack Operations
  • OpenStack Trove
  • Replication and Backup for OpenStack
  • High Availability for OpenStack
  • OpenStack User Stories
  • Monitoring and Tools for OpenStack

The conference features a full day of keynotes, breakout sessions, and Birds of a Feather sessions on April 14 preceded by an optional day of tutorials on April 13. A Monday reception will be held on the exhibit floor and joint lunches with both conferences offer you the opportunity to network with both the OpenStack and MySQL communities from both conferences. The OpenStack Live conference is a great event for users of any level.

As a bonus, OpenStack Live attendees may attend any Percona Live MySQL Conference session during the days of the OpenStack event. Conference only passes are available for April 14 and conference and tutorial passes are available for both April 13 and 14.

If you are using OpenStack and have a story to share – or a skill to teach – then now is the time to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and write your speaking proposal for either breakout or tutorial sessions (or both). Submissions will be reviewed by the OpenStack Live Conference Committee, which includes:

  • Mark Atwood: Director – Open Source Evangelism for HP Cloud Services
  • Rich Bowen: OpenStack Community Liaison at Red Hat
  • Jason Rouault: Senior Director OpenStack Cloud at Time Warner Cable
  • Peter Boros: Principal Architect at Percona

Presenting at OpenStack Live 2015 is your chance to put your ideas, case studies, best practices and technical knowledge in front of an intelligent, engaged audience of OpenStack users. If selected as a speaker by our Conference Committee, you will receive a complimentary full conference pass.

Public speaking not your thing or just want to learn about the latest and greatest OpenStack technologies, deployments and projects?

Man in shadow sees bright light through the window. Last month Eucalyptus CEO Mårten Mickos, a long-time critic of OpenStack, had a sudden change of heart. Yesterday his company was purchased by HP, a company that itself embraced OpenStack this year in a big way. Hard to imagine the timing of Mickos’ OpenStack epiphany was a coincidence. He wrote a blog post on his company website last month, explaining his change in thinking. He… Read More

  • innobackupex --galera-info was checking only for non-capitalized wsrep_* status variables which was incompatible with MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.0. Bug fixed rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow" href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+bug/1306875">#1306875.

I’ll have the pleasure to present, next Wednesday, September 17 at 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EDT) a webinar titled “ href="http://www.percona.com/resources/mysql-webinars/openstack-mysql-dba-perspective" >OpenStack: A MySQL DBA Perspective.” Everyone is invited.

The webinar will be divided into two parts. The first part will cover how MySQL can be used by the OpenStack infrastructure including the expected load, high-availability solutions and geo-DR.

The second part will focus on the use of MySQL within an OpenStack cloud. We’ll look into the various options that are available, the traditional ones and Trove. We’ll also discuss the block device options in regards with MySQL performance and, finally, we’ll review the high-availability implications of running MySQL in an OpenStack cloud.

I look forward to your questions, and if you have any related to OpenStack that I can help with in advance of the webinar please feel free to post those in the comments section below. I’ll write a followup post after the webinar to recap all related questions and answers. I’ll also provide the slides.

See you next Wednesday!
