Percona Live 2016: A quick chat with Bill Nye, the Science Guy!

Percona Live is humming along, and we had quite a whirlwind keynote session this morning. Bill Nye the Science Guy gave an amazing talk, Bill Nye’s Objective – Change the World, on how the process of science and critical thinking can help us not only be positive about the challenges we face in our world today, but also help us to come up with the big ideas we need to solve them. He discussed many topics, from how his parents met, their involvement in science (his mother worked on the Enigma Code in World War 2!), working at Boeing as an engineer, his involvement with Carl Sagan, and how he has worked to help harness renewable energy through solar panels, a solar water heater, and skylights at his own …

Performance of Percona Server for MySQL on Intel Server Systems using HDD, SATA SSD, and NVMe SSD as Different Storage Mediums

We’re moving along on the first day at Percona Live Data Performance Conference 2016, and I was able to attend a lecture from Intel’s Ken LeTourneau on Performance of Percona Server for MySQL on Intel Server Systems using HDD, SATA SSD, and NVMe SSD as Different Storage Mediums. In this talk, Ken reviewed some benchmark testing he did using MySQL on various types of storage mediums. This talk looked at the performance of Percona Server for MySQL for Linux running on the same Intel system, but with three different storage configurations. We looked at and compared the performance of:

  1. a RAID of HDD
  2. a RAID of SATA SSD
  3. a RAID of NVMe SSD

In the talk,  Ken covered the hardware and system …

Voting for talks at the Percona Live Data Performance Conference 2016

So this year the Percona Live conference has a new name — it is the “Data Performance Conference” (presumably for a much broader appeal and the fact that Percona is now in the MongoDB world as well). And the next new thing to note? You have to go through a process of “community voting”, i.e. the speaker has to promote their talks before via their own channels to see how many votes they can get (we tried this before at the MySQL & Friends Devroom at FOSDEM; in this case, please remember you also need to create a new account and actually vote while logged in).

I hope you vote for Sergei, Monty and my proposals!

  1. Using and Managing MariaDB – a tutorial, …
