Products and Services
Location: Ballroom G Level: Novice

Have you heard the buzz about Percona’s enhancements to MySQL? What
about XtraDB, Percona’s high-performance storage engine based on InnoDB?
Come learn what all the fuss is about. In this session you’ll learn
about these and other open-source projects, and you’ll get a preview of
the exciting roadmap for their future.

This session begins with the open-source enhancements Percona has made
to MySQL. The result is a server with more features, performance, and
diagnostics. Next you’ll learn about XtraDB, a new open-source storage
engine based on InnoDB. The combination of XtraDB with Percona’s
enhancements to MySQL is a highly scalable database server that’s ready
to deploy today. The session continues with Xtrabackup, an
open-source online backup solution that you can use to back up your
InnoDB or XtraDB data without interrupting or locking anything.
Xtrabackup includes additional features such as streaming and
incremental backups, plus much more.

The combination of Percona’s enhanced server, storage engine, and
backup solution creates an integrated, enterprise-ready database
solution that is high-performance, scalable, and supported by a
world-class professional services organization.
