Percona Live 2017: Day Three Keynotes

Percona Live Keynotes

Welcome to the third (and final) day of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2017, and the third (and final) set of Percona Live keynotes! The enthusiasm hasn’t waned here at Percona Live, and we had a full house on Thursday morning!

Day three of the conference kicked off with three keynotes talks, and ended with the Community Awards Ceremony:

Percona Live Keynote PerconaHow Percona Contributes to the Open Source Database Ecosystem

Peter Zaitsev (Percona)

Peter Zaitsev, CEO of Percona, discussed the growth and adoption of open source databases, and Percona’s commitment to remaining an unbiased champion of the open source database ecosystem. Percona remains committed to providing open source support and solutions to its customers, users and the community. He also provided updates and highlighted exciting new developments in Percona Server software for MySQL and MongoDB.

Percona Live Keynote BookingMonitoring Booking.com without looking at MySQL

Jean-François Gagné (Booking.com)

Jean-François Gagné presented a fascinating talk about using a metric for observing Booking.com’s system health: bookings per second. It wasn’t a technical deep-dive (not MySQL- or Linux-related) but it is one of the most important metric Booking.com has to detect problems (and customer behavior) on the website. Many things impact this metric, including the time of the day, the day of the week or the season of the year.
