PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- Percona, the company that makes MySQL faster and more reliable, today provided final details on its highly anticipated Third Annual Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 to be held at The Hyatt Regency Santa Clara and Santa Clara Convention Center, April 1-4, 2014. A "must attend" MySQL event, Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 promises the broadest range of talks and tutorials by industry experts, along with fun and informative networking events. This year's conference also features the first-ever Open Source Appreciation Day, which takes place on March 31, 2014, and includes two separate events, CentOS Dojo Santa Clara and OpenStack Today, highlighting these two key technologies. A new keynote address about the OpenStack ecosystem by Boris Renski, a member of the OpenStack Board of Directors, has also been added.
The energy at the Percona Live MySQL Conferences is palpable as everyone from experts to novices gather to learn, share, and enjoy. In an interview, Jeremy Cole, Google senior systems engineer and a presenter at the conference, said, "Aside from actual sessions, one of the things I look forward to most each year is the social aspects. This conference is the only place where nearly every member of the MySQL community comes together all at once. I am excited about Oracle's participation and their sessions about MySQL 5.7, and the many talks from those who have deployed MySQL 5.6 in production."
Similarly, Mats Kindahl, senior principal software developer in MySQL at Oracle and a conference presenter, is enthusiastic about the opportunity that Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 presents: "I'm quite interested in anything related to high-availability and scalability -- especially real-life experience from people managing large farms. There is a lot of value in seeing and understanding what kind of problems people run into in practice. Because it's never what you see in a theoretical presentation on high-availability. It's always the details that make a difference."
Along with keynote talks by Oracle's Tomas Ulin, Fusion-io's Nisha Talagala, Dropbox's Renjish Abraham, Big Fish Games' Sean Chighizola, Continuent's Robert Hodges, and Percona's Peter Zaitsev, this year's event will feature a keynote panel on the Future of Operating MySQL at Scale. Hosted by Terry Erisman, Chief Marketing Officer at Percona, the panel will feature Robert Hodges, Nisha Talagala, and Peter Zaitsev, and will focus on the challenges of operating MySQL at scale when downtime is very costly for mission-critical applications and more and more companies are running MySQL in the Cloud. Topics such as high availability clusters, multi-datacenter replication, and data storage will be discussed in addition to other important future challenges.
Friday Keynote on OpenStack
A new keynote has been added on Friday, April 4, 2014 about OpenStack. Boris Renski, OpenStack Board Member and CMO of Mirantis, will present "OpenStack Co-Opetition, A View from Within." He will discuss the competitive and cooperative nature of the OpenStack ecosystem and touch upon topics such as TROVE which is relevant to Database-as-a-Service in relation to OpenStack.
Open Source Appreciation Day
On Monday, March 31, 2014, the day before the official start of the conference, Percona is hosting the first-ever Open Source Appreciation Day, which consists of two events:
- CentOS Dojo Santa Clara - Offered in cooperation with CentOS, this free event brings together the CentOS community to discuss systems administration, best practices and emerging technologies. Attendance is limited to 75 people and advanced registration is required. The event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Room 203 of the Santa Clara Convention Center.
- OpenStack Today - Offered in cooperation with members of the OpenStack community, this free event provides an opportunity to hear from leading industry technologists who will speak about today's fastest growing open source cloud infrastructure project, OpenStack, and how MySQL fits into the evolving OpenStack roadmap. Attendance is limited to 100 people and advanced registration is required. The event will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Room 204 of the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Attendees who register for one of the two Open Source Appreciation Day events can use the discount code "OPEN" to receive a 15 percent discount on their Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 registration. Registration for either of these events includes a free Expo Hall and Keynote Pass for the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo.
Lightning Talks and Birds of a Feather Sessions (BOFs)
Crowd favorites at previous Percona Live Conferences, these events are informative and fun.
Lightning Talks - Always entertaining, Lightning Talks provide an opportunity for attendees to propose, explain, exhort, and rant on any MySQL-related topic for five minutes. They might include a new idea, successful project, cautionary story, quick tip, or demonstration. Lightning Talks will take place Thursday night, April 3, 2014, during the MySQL Community Networking Reception, which begins immediately following the breakout sessions.
Birds of a Feather sessions enable attendees with interests in the same project or topic to enjoy some quality face time. This year's topics include MySQL 5.6 in production, best practices for MySQL data replication, extreme MySQL performance, and much more. The BOF sessions will take place Wednesday night, April 2, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Community Dinner and Community Reception
One of the most compelling aspects of the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo is the networking that takes place, providing the opportunity to make connections that can help enhance a career, facilitate a current project, or inspire new ideas. This year's conference includes a Welcome Reception on Tuesday night and the Community Networking Reception on Thursday night. A community-organized dinner is planned for Wednesday night, following the BOFs. For a complete list of events and times, see the Conference Program.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming.
