During our presentation at Percona Live 2019 Intel and its software partners will introduce the audience to the work we’re doing to enable an open-source framework, we call Cloud Native Database. This is a collaborative effort between Intel, Rockset, PlanetScale, MariaDB and Percona.

Through the presentation the audience will be introduced to a set of principles and architectural elements that define what we mean by Cloud Native Database. We will discuss Rockset’s RocksDB-Cloud library and how it works with Facebook’s MyRocks storage engine. We also will cover PlanetScale’s Vitess project and their use of Kubernetes for deployment of our Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) mechanisms. Lastly we share data on the performance and scale characteristics of the architecture and components that we have developed.

Who’d get the most from the presentation?

Developers, DBAs, database practitioners in general, and folks interested in building/deploying/operating Stateful, Cloud Native Micro-Services on Kubernetes will all benefit from this presentation.

Whose presentations are you most looking forward to?

I’m really looking forward to Vitess: Running Sharded MySQL on Kubernetes by Sugu Sougoumarane and Dan Kozlowski. The folks at PlanetScale are doing some amazing stuff with the Vitess project. I’m also super excited to get audience feedback on our second presentation, A Discussion on the Advantages Afforded MySQL DBaaS offerings hosted on Intel’s Next Gen Platform.
