In this session, I will talk about tough DBA tasks - how to automate failover under non-trivial crash situations (i.e. promoting one of slaves to new master), and about how to eliminate downtime for difficult maintenance tasks (i.e sharding). If you have spent too much time for these tasks, this session will help your DBA life easier. Read more.

Eliot Horowitz (MongoDB)
Average rating: ***..
(3.43, 7 ratings)
While MySQL and MongoDB often fight over the same deployment, there are many cases where MySQL and MongoDB should be used in conjunction. They each excel at different things, so its important to understand when to use one or the other, and how to make them work well together. Eliot Horowitz is the CTO and Co-Founder of 10gen, the creators of MongoDB Read more.
Eran Levin (Xeround)
If you thought running a database in the cloud was easy, think again. Databases in a cloud environment are inherently different from traditional installations in a datacenter or even in your trusted hosted environment. Today I'll explain the four key considerations we believe every system architect should take into account when designing their database for the cloud. Read more.

At Twitter, we have gone through many iterations of storage systems as we have coped with tremendous growth. We have been able to solve many general distributed storage problems in a framework named Gizzard. This has allowed us to quickly and safely develop specialized components for the parts of Twitter that can no longer handle the scale at which they are required to operate. Read more.
Ian Gulliver (Google), Eric Rollins (Google)
Average rating: ***..
(3.80, 5 ratings)
Google engineers have built a system that detects MySQL master failure, chooses a new master, promotes it and hooks up slaves with under a minute downtime. This is deployed in an environment where there's zero tolerance for transaction loss of any sort. The original designer and a sysadmin who worked on the deployment will talk about design, implementation and practical lessons learned. Read more.

The next major release of Memcached, memcached 1.6, will support loadable storage engines to manage cached data. The NDB Engine for Memcached allows MySQL Cluster and Memcached to be used together in a wide variety of ways, and can be individually configured for particular memcached key prefixes. The presentation will include an overview, how-tos, and benchmarks. Read more.

MySQL Cluster (NDB) is one of the most interesting storage engines. Oracle promotes NDB as the perfect solution for high volume transactions in high availability. On the other hand, many famous users are reluctant in migrating applications to NDB. This session will help in understanding in practical terms when it makes sense to use NDB and when it is better to stay with or use InnoDB. Read more.
