Location: Ballroom G

Have you heard the buzz about Percona’s enhancements to MySQL? What about XtraDB, Percona’s high-performance storage engine based on InnoDB? Come learn what all the fuss is about. In this session you’ll learn about these and other open-source projects, and you’ll get a preview of the exciting roadmap for their future.

This session begins with the open-source enhancements Percona has made to MySQL. The result is a server with more features, performance, and diagnostics. Next you’ll learn about XtraDB, a new open-source storage engine based on InnoDB. The combination of XtraDB with Percona’s enhancements to MySQL is a highly scalable database server that’s ready to deploy today. The session continues with Xtrabackup, an open-source online backup solution that you can use to back up your InnoDB or XtraDB data without interrupting or locking anything. Xtrabackup includes additional features such as streaming and incremental backups, plus much more.

The combination of Percona’s enhanced server, storage engine, and backup solution creates an integrated, enterprise-ready database solution that is high-performance, scalable, and supported by a world-class professional services organization.
