MySQL is unique in many ways. It supports plugins. It supports storage engines. It has been around for 25 years. It is owned by Oracle, thus birthing a popular branch in Percona Server for MySQL and a popular fork in MariaDB Server. You're a busy DBA having to maintain a mix of this. Or you're a CIO planning to choose one branch/fork. How do you go about picking? How do you go about supporting multiple databases? Find out more in this talk.
The ecosystem is now beyond just a comparison between MySQL 8, Percona Server for MySQL 8 and MariaDB Server 10.5. The ecosystem itself includes other tools, e.g. proxies like MySQL Router, ProxySQL, and MariaDB MaxScale. We should also throw into the mix High Availability solutions like group replication, but also the many variants of Galera Cluster: Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC), MariaDB Galera Cluster and upstream.
In addition to the server deep-dive as to what feature differences exist between MySQL/Percona Server/MariaDB Server, the ecosystem tools as a whole are covered as well. Within 50 minutes, you'll leave informed and hopefully more knowledgable on what to pick.
This is the comparison talk you want to go for! It is in-depth, highly technical, and very tabular. And it comes from an independent 3rd party who has experience with all of the servers.

  • Core Technology MySQL
  • Why this level of difficulty? It is an entry level comparison but an intermediate talk because you are better off knowing stuff as we can't explain in time, the differences with JSON or CTE implementations
