Percona Live Presents: Globalizing Player Accounts with MySQL at Riot Games

During my presentation at Percona Live 2019, I’ll be talking about how Riot Games, the company behind League of Legends, migrated hundreds of millions of player accounts to unlock opportunities for us to delight players. This meant moving ten geographically distributed databases into a single global database replicated into four AWS regions. I’ll talk about some of the technical decisions we made, the expected vs actual outcomes, and lessons we learned along the way.

Migrating hundreds of millions of player records without impacting a player’s ability to manage their account and log in was a daunting task. I’ll shed some light on how we managed to handle this data migration while modifying the database schema. I’ll also go into detail on the backend …

Percona Live Presents: The First Ever TiDB Track

The PingCAP team has always been a strong supporter of Percona and the wider open source database community. As the people who work day in and day out on TiDB, an open source NewSQL database with MySQL compatibility, open source database is what gets us in the morning, and there’s no better place to share that passion than Percona Live.

At this year’s Percona Live Open Source Database Conference in Austin, Texas, we are particularly excited to bring you a full track of talks and demo on the latest development in TiDB during Day 1 of the conference.

Who would benefit from the TiDB track

The TiDB track is designed to share with developers, DBAs, and practitioners in general technical know-hows, reproducible benchmarks (no benchmark-eting), and best practices on how TiDB can solve their problems. …

Percona Live Presents: The MySQL Query Optimizer Explained Through Optimizer Trace

During my presentation at Percona Live 2019 I will show how using Optimizer Trace can give insight into the inner workings of the MySQL Query Optimizer. Through the presentation, the audience will both be introduced to optimizer trace, learn more about the decisions the query optimizer makes, and learn about the query execution strategies the query optimizer has at its disposal. I’ll be covering the main phases of the MySQL optimizer and its optimization strategies, including query transformations, data access strategies, the range optimizer, the join optimizer, and subquery optimization.

Who’d benefit most from the presentation?

DBAs, developers, support engineers and other people who are concerned about MySQL query performance will benefit from this presentation. Knowing the optimizer trace …

Percona Live Presents: Vitess – Running Sharded MySQL on Kubernetes

The topic I’m presenting addresses a growing and unfulfilled need: the ability to run stateful workloads in Kubernetes. Running stateless applications is now considered a solved problem. However, it’s currently not practical to put databases like MySQL in containers, give them to Kubernetes, and expect it to manage their life cycles.

Sugu Sougoumarane, CTO of Planetscale and creator of Vitess

Vitess addresses this need by providing all the necessary orchestration and safety, and it has multiple years of mileage to show for it. Storage is the last piece of the puzzle that needs to be solved in Kubernetes, and it’s exciting to see people look towards Vitess to fill this gap.

Who’d benefit most from the presentation?

Anybody that’s looking to move to Kubernetes and is wondering about what to do about their data is the perfect audience. Needless to say, vitess …
