The keynote speeches will be delivered by some of MySQL’s top experts, including Tomas Ulin, vice president of MySQL Engineering at Oracle MySQL, who will present “MySQL: It Just Keeps Getting Better”; Robert Hodges, CEO of Continuent (which has just been acquired by VMware), who will present “MySQL Comes of Age”; Alexey Yurchenko, co-founder of Codership, who will present “Synchronous Revelation”; Ryan Taylor, HGST - Flash Platforms Group, who will present “HGST: Your Complete One- stop Shop for MySQL Storage Solutions”; and  Peter Zaitsev, co-founder and CEO of Percona, who will present “The Ever Evolving MySQL Landscape.”

The event draws from well over 20 countries worldwide of presenters and attendees. The conference will begin on Monday, November 3, with a tutorial session, with keynotes, breakout sessions, and a networking reception following on Tuesday.

Monday night will consist of an off-site community dinner providing networking opportunities for  attendees. The breakout sessions will cover the topics of the upcoming release of MySQL 5.7, MySQL in the Cloud, MySQL in the Openstack environment, and the cross-over of MySQL and NoSQL solutions.

“We have a number of talks in the area of performance optimization, which are planned to help people make the most out of MySQL in terms of improving performance, improving backups, better replications, and infrastructure use,” stated Terry Erisman, chief marketing officer at Percona, Inc. All of these are aimed at driving  down costs, which is important for the larger MySQL users, he noted. 

Percona Live London MySQL Conference 2014 will take place November 3-4 at the Millennium Gloucester Conference Center.
