Percona Live - Keynote: How MySQL can thrive in the world of massive data hype
Continuent CEO Robert Hodges says that NoSQL solutions are oversold, but this is no reason for MySQL fans to become complacent. He kicked off Day 2 of the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo with his keynote, "How MySQL can thrive in the world of massive data hype."
He said there are new challenges in data management, and relational databases must solve them or risk becoming irrelevant. This keynote describes our work on Continuent Tungsten to deliver better infrastructure and architecture for MySQL-based systems. We will use our experiences to propose a roadmap for the MySQL community that includes new tools as well as advances needed within the MySQL server.
