Many companies are trying to save money and increase the reliability of their systems by moving from proprietary database systems on proprietary operating systems to MySQL and reliable open source operating systems and applications. MySQL has helping many users migrate to MySQL and as a result, has created a repeatable process for determining what databases systems should be migrated to MySQL and how to estimate the effort for the migration. This presentation will cover the best practices used by the MySQL database migration experts based on their experience with actual migrations in the field.
Key topics include:
Brian is a manager in MySQL professional services that still finds time to deliver services to MySQL clients. He currently leads the MySQL PS storage engine and migration practices. He has over 25 years of experience in database design, engineering and usage.
His experience includes:
While he claims to be mainly a C++/OO architect and developer he has also found time to build several data warehouses up to 12TB in size, design large scale Java/XML based web systems, and work with many of MySQL’s largest users. He has designed, built, and managed database systems on MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL, Informix, and a few other databases nobody remembers anymore. Brian’s hobby is ping pong and trying to grok why Object Relational Databases were never successful.
