Percona Live Europe 2017 Keynotes Day One

Percona Live Europe 2017 Keynotes

After yesterday’s very successful tutorial day, everyone looked forward to an inspiring first day of the conference and the Percona Live Europe 2017 keynotes. There were some fantastic keynotes delivered, and some excellent sessions scheduled.

Note. These videos are as shot, and the slides will be superimposed very soon so you can enjoy the full conference experience!

Laurie Coffin, Chief Marketing Office of Percona, opened proceedings with a welcome address where she paid tribute to Jaako Pesonen: a true champion of open source and friend to our community who passed away just this month. He will be missed.

Championing Open Source Databases


Peter Zaitsev delivers his keynote “Championing Open Source Databases”

Laurie then introduced Peter Zaitsev, CEO of Percona, who delivered his keynote “Championing Open Source Databases.” He reiterating Percona’s commitment to remaining an unbiased champion of the open source database ecosystem.

At Percona, we see a lot of compelling open source projects and trends that we think the community will find interesting, and following Peter’s keynote there was a round of lightning talks from projects that we think are stellar and deserve to be highlighted.

Percona Monitoring and Management Demo


Michael Coburn delivers his keynote “Percona Monitoring and Management Demo”

The second keynote was by Percona Product Manager Michael Coburn on Percona Monitoring and Management. How can you optimize database performance if you can’t see what’s happening? Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) is a free, open source platform for managing and monitoring MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB and ProxySQL performance. PMM uses Metrics Monitor (Grafana + Prometheus) for visualization of data points, along with Query Analytics, to help identify and quantify non-performant queries and provide thorough time-based analysis to ensure that your data works as efficiently as possible. Michael provided a brief demo of PMM.

MySQL as a Layered Service: How to use Proxy SQL to Control Traffic and Scale-Out

René Cannaò delivers his keynote “MySQL as a Layered Service: How to use Proxy SQL to Control Traffic and Scale-Out”

The next keynote was from René Cannaò, Founder at ProxySQLThe inability to control the traffic sent to MySQL is one of the worse nightmares for a DBA. Scaling out and high availability are only buzz words if the application doesn’t support such architectures. ProxySQL is able to create an abstraction layer between the application and the database: controlling traffic at this layer hides the complexity of the database infrastructure from the application, allowing both HA and scale out. The same layer is able to protect the database infrastructure from abusive traffic, acting as a firewall and cache, and rewriting queries.

Realtime DNS Analytics at Cloudflare with ClickHouse


Tom Arnfeld delivers his keynote “Realtime DNS Analytics at Cloudflare with ClickHouse” 

Cloudflare operates multiple DNS services that handle over 100 billion queries per day for over 6 million internet properties, collecting and aggregating logs for customer analytics, DDoS attack analysis and ad-hoc debugging. Tom Arnfeld, Systems Engineer at Cloudflare, talks briefly in his keynote on how Cloudflare securely and reliably ingests these log events, and uses ClickHouse as an OLAP system to both serve customer real-time analytics and other queries.

Why Open Sourcing our Database Tooling was a Smart Decision


Shlomi Noach delivers his keynote “Why Open Sourcing our Database Tooling was a Smart Decision” 

Drawing from experience at GitHub, Senior Infrastructure Engineer Shlomi Noach, argues in his keynote that open sourcing your database infrastructure/tooling is not only a good, but a smart business decision, that may reward you in unexpected ways. Here are his observations.

MyRocks at Facebook and a Roadmap


Yoshinori Matsunobu delivers his keynote “MyRocks at Facebook and a Roadmap”

A major objective of creating MyRocks at Facebook was replacing InnoDB as the main storage engine, with more space optimisations, and without big migration pains. They have made good progress and extended their goals to cover more use cases. In this keynote, Yoshinori Matsunobu, Production Engineer at Facebook, shares MyRocks production deployment status and MyRocks development plans.

Prometheus for Monitoring Metrics


Brian Brazil, CEO of Prometheus, delivers his keynote “Prometheus for Monitoring Metrics”

From its humble beginnings in 2012, the Prometheus monitoring system has grown a substantial community with a comprehensive set of integrations. Brian Brazil, CEO of Prometheus, provides an overview of the core ideas behind Prometheus and its feature set.

That sums up today’s keynotes. Stay tuned for the next set tomorrow!

Percona Live 2017: Day Two Keynotes

Percona Live 2017

Welcome to the second day of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2017, and the second set of Percona Live keynotes! It’s a bit rainy outside today, but that isn’t bothering the Percona Live attendees (we’re all indoors learning about new open source technologies)!

Day two of the conference kicked off with another four keynote talks, all of which discussed issues and technologies that are addressed by open source solutions:

Percona Live KeynotesThe Open Source Database Business Model is Under Siege

Paul Dix (InfluxData)

Paul Dix’s keynote may have ruffled a few feathers, as he looked at possible futures for the open source software model (and community). The traditional open source infrastructure business model relied on the backing company providing either support and professional services or closed source tools to provide additional functionality like production tooling, enhanced security and monitoring. For a time this model was good, and it worked. But will it be feasible in the future to maintain this model, given the nature of how markets are developing? Paul discussed various reasons why he thinks the answer is “no.”

Percona Live KeynotesKeynote Panel (Percona, VividCortex, Continuent)

Richard Hipp (SQLite.org), Baron Schwartz (VividCortex), MC Brown(Continuent), Peter Zaitsev (Percona)

Join Percona and the Diamond sponsors of the conference, VividCortex and Continuent to talk database trends. They provided their thoughts on Paul’s talk (above), time series data and database development, whether SQL databases should continue to develop for “niche” functions and what we should be looking for at Percona Live 2020.

Percona Live KeynotesMySQL 8.0: Powering the next generation of Web, SaaS, Cloud

Tomas Ulin (Oracle)

Tomas Ulin, VP of MySQL Engineering at Oracle, provided this morning’s audience with a big picture overview of MySQL 8.0 development priorities, features that are available, and what is coming in upcoming releases. He covered MySQL 5.7, MySQL 8.0 and InnoDB Cluster. He also discussed MySQL’s roadmap and featured some benchmark performance comparisons.

Percona Live KeynotesThe Future Of Monitoring Is Distributed

Baron Schwartz (VividCortex)

Baron Schwartz of VividCortex gave an insightful lecture on “observability” in the data layer. The world of technology is undergoing a rapid and permanent shift. He pointed out how we all know that we’re moving to the cloud at an accelerating pace. The fundamental change that’s taking place today is that our applications are far more distributed than they’ve ever been, in nearly invisible ways. And that’s not good, because invisible means unmeasurable. He posited that “observability” is the new goal for all the data that is available to businesses, and that businesses should make decisions based on what the data says about what customers want.

All the keynotes today highlighted the many different aspects of the open source database community that come together to solve database challenges. Percona Live runs through Thursday 4/27. Check out tomorrow’s keynotes here, as well as the numerous breakout sessions with top open source database experts.
