Percona Live Europe 2016: Day One Keynote Speakers

Percona Live EuropeWelcome to the first day of the Percona Live Europe Open Source Database Conference!

Percona Live Europe is the premier event for the diverse and active European open source database community, as well as businesses that develop and use open source database software. The conference has a technical focus with an emphasis on the core topics of MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL and other open source databases. Tackling subjects such as analytics, architecture and design, security, operations, scalability and performance, Percona Live provides in-depth discussions for your high-availability, IoT, cloud, big data and other changing business needs.

Day One of the sold out conference kicked off with a keynote presentation by Percona co-founder and CEO, Peter Zaitsev, on the current open source database ecosystem. He talked about how the explosion of growth in devices has led to substantial growth in databases. Due to thisPercona Live Europe growth, proprietary databases have become too expensive to purchase and maintain.

The top Internet applications embraced open source databases a long time ago, and now enterprises are catching up. Open source benefits include no vendor lock-in, more flexibility, more compatibility and faster innovation. In addition, the TCO for open source is reported to be 3-10x less than proprietary enterprise software.

According to Gartner, by 2018 more than 70% of newly developed applications will run on open source databases. At the same time, 80% of existing applications are candidates for open source migration, and 50% of existing ODBMS will move to open source DBMS.

All the top open source database systems are focused on innovation, with globally distributed development teams. In the spirit of open source innovation, Percona Live Europe features keynotes from open source innovators such as Oracle MySQL, MariaDB and Facebook, along with in-depth technical presentations about MongoDB, Redis, RocksDB and PostgreSQL.

Peter invited several developers and ecosystem members to come up and discuss how the technologies they work on inspire them:

Percona Live EuropeMark Callaghan from Facebook wrapped up the morning keynotes talking about how MySQL and MongoDB are quickly developing into great products for web-scale deployments. MySQL has traditionally focused on features users need, while more recent arrival MongoDB focused on features that scale. Performance, efficiency, manageability, usability and availability are all important. Now MySQL has begun to focus on features that scale, while MongoDB has been adding features users need. Both are getting much better at web-scale, which is great for all users.

Mark will be giving a talk tomorrow on Performance and Efficiency with MyRocks and MongoRocks from 2:40 PM – 3:05 PM. Check it out!
