On Wednesday, February 16th, I’ll be attending Percona Live in San Francisco to hear about what’s new in the MySQL ecosystem and talk about our adoption of Fusion-io storage for some of our systems at Craigslist. Not only do we have a busy web site, the data itself has posed some unique challenges over the last few years.
Part of getting a handle on that was upgrading to faster storage and moving from years-old MySQL 5.0.xx to more modern releases. I’ll also provide a bit of background on our plans to continue scaling and growing in the coming years.
If you’re in the area and interested in some of the cutting edge work that’s been going into production as part of major MySQL/XtraDB deployments, check out the conference. It’s an affordable 1-day event, considering all the expert brains you can pick and learn from (myself exempted).
If you’re going and have questions you’d like to ask now so I can work them into my talk, please do so in the comments.
