This session covers data smoothing techniques including SQL query side solutions that reduce resolution for data archival storage for more efficient application performance. Read more.

Lee Stigile (Oracle), John Duncan (Oracle Corp.)
MySQL security best practices often assume restricted access to the physical server and restrictive file system privileges.

This session will provide silent installation instructions, common deployment strategies and recommendations for securing your data. Read more.
