Explosive OpenStack growth at the Percona Live MySQL Conference & Expo

The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 runs April 1-4  at the Santa Clara Convention Center and Santa Clara Hyatt – but be sure to get there a day early for the inaugural Open Source Appreciation Day on March 31 – this event is free but because space is limited I suggest registering now to reserve your spot.

Interest is particularly high in OpenStack and its intersection with MySQL and Open Source Appreciation Day and the conference sessions and events reflect this. Last year, the Percona Live MySQL Conference included 4 talks with Trove (“Red Dwarf” at the time) as the principal topic. This year there are 14 OpenStack-related talks and events:

  • OpenStack Today on Monday, March 31 features 6 talks devoted to discussing the intersection of MySQL and OpenStack
  • 2 keynote talks
  • 4 breakout sessions
  • 1 Birds of a Feather session
  • 1 tutorial

In addition to Trove, sessions will focus on operating OpenStack clouds, the MySQL core, and hybrid deployments.

Beyond the OpenStack sessions, the Percona Live conference features a total of 9 keynotes, 13 tutorials, 112 breakout sessions, 8 Birds of a Feather sessions, and two great networking receptions. There is also the Open Source Appreciation Day on Monday featuring the OpenStack Today and CentOS Dojo Santa Clara events.

The OpenStack Today event is free but as I mentioned above preregistration is required and space is limited. Visit the event page to learn more and to register.

The full conference schedule is available by visiting the Percona Live site. Take advantage of the full conference slate of activities by registering now. Use discount code “OpenStack-Today” to receive $200 off your registration.
