From MySQL Single Instance to Big Data - Morgan Tocker, Oracle
MySQL is the most popular database on the web but how do you grow from one instance on a single LAMP box to meets needs of high availability, big data, and/or 'drinking from the fire hose' without losing your sanity. This presentation covers best practices such as DRBD, read/write splitting, clustering, the new Fabric tool, and feeding Hadoop. 80% of Hadoop sites are fed from MySQL instances and it can be frustrating without guidance. MySQL's Fabric will manage sharding and provide more flexibility for your data. And using the memcached protocol to access data as a key/value pair can be up to 9 time faster than SQL (but you can still access the data concurrently with SQL). So do not get stuck without a plan for growth.

Getting Data Out of Your Cloud(s) With Open Source - Cody Herriges, Puppet Labs
Many Operations teams will find that at some point in time that a single cloud technology is not serving the business' needs and so they'll diversify. It is apparent fairly quickly that all these systems either have their own internal view of what it going on or have a complete lack of insight all together. To make a sound decision about where to invest your time and money you need to get all this usage and performance data into one place so it can be crunched and beautifully displayed.

Open source makes this possible by giving you a level of flexibility hard to find in other tools. We'll take a look at how we can instrument open source platforms like OpenStack and proprietary platforms: AWS and vSphere by utilizing the open source tools: ElasticSearch, Graphite, and Diamond.

A Walk Through File Synchronization Lane - John Hawley, Intel
Storage is hard. One of the aspects of that is getting files synchronized to different places, how do you do it efficiently and effectively. It's a hard problem because of the myriad of use cases from mirror infrastructures, content distribution networks, backups, remote office locations, mobile devices, websites and clouds. With a myriad of different use cases there's a huge breadth of potential options to dealing with trying to keep files in sync. I intend to do a reasonable dive into what technologies are out there for the more general use cases, get into why you may or may not want to use them, what their strengths and weaknesses are and attempt to help give guidance to folks trying to find their way through this complex and hard problem

The Proper Care of Feeding of MySQL Database for Linux Admins Who Also Have DBA duties - Morgan Tocker, Oracle
You there, Linux administration god -- did they mention you also have a small to huge gaggle of MySQL instances that you need to take care of when you were hired? Well databases are the wanton, needy brats of the software world and will provide you quite the wild ride if you are not prepared. This session covers what every Linux admin needs to know to keep their databases happy, friendly, and efficient. Do you know if SSD really work? Where do you spend you upgrade budget for the best results? What replication strategies take the load off your main server, feed Hadoop clusters, or provide 'save your butt' redundancy? What tools do you need to ease user admin, backups, query tuning, and generally make your life easier? All this and more in a fast paced session you need to attend.
