Santa Clara, Here We Come!
Next week, the InfiniDB Team is headed to Santa Clara, California for the Percona Live: MySQL User Conference and Expo.
If you’re at the conference, be sure to stop by booth #204 to meet the team and find out what is new with InfiniDB. MySQL has always been well suited for transactional workloads. However, it’s challenged when it comes to performing complex analytic queries against massive data sets. Fortunately, you have an alternative. If your data volumes and analytic needs have outpaced MySQL’s capabilities, stop by the booth and we’ll share how you can use InfiniDB to scale your MySQL environments for Big Data analytics. And when you visit the booth, pick up a pocket torch and be sure to ask us how you can take home a Kindle Fire HDX!
Don’t miss Dipti Joshi’s talk, “Windowing Functions in MySQL with InfiniDB”, April 2nd, 4:50PM, in Ballroom G. As Percona's Vadim Tkachenko wrote in his recent blog post, windowing functions in InfiniDB are “worth attention”. In her talk, Dipti will discuss how users can run statistical calculations in-database, without needing to use external processing environments, like R. It should be a really good talk for conference attendees!
Additionally, while in Santa Clara, InfiniDB’s Jim Tommaney will be presenting an overview of InfiniDB at the MariaDB & MySQL Community Event on April 3rd, at 3:30PM, at the Hilton Santa Clara Hotel – just a short walk from the Santa Clara Convention and Percona Live Conference. This talk is a great opportunity to learn how InfiniDB, a storage engine for MySQL, can help you deliver real-time reporting and an analytics at scale.
The InfiniDB Team will be out in force in Santa Clara. But if you’re not able to join us in California, be sure to follow our conversations on Twitter @InfiniDB throughout the week, as we’ll be sharing our thoughts on the gatherings, and would love to get your take.
We’re delighted to be taking part in this annual gathering of the MySQL enthusiasts and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible. Hope to see you there!
