This session was presented on Percona Community Live Online June 21-23, 2022. Check out the full schedule here.

Right now we are in a spot where people think that the databases are just part of the commoditized infrastructure. But unfortunately, that leads us to a lot of problems. And Matt Yonkovit, The Head of Open Source Strategy at Percona, is talking about database design here. There are a lot of people out there who have never heard why they should focus on designing their databases, and their database infrastructure a little better. So multiple people can benefit from this talk.
