Highlights from Percona Live 2017

Percona Live 2017 is a wrap! What did we think? Baron Schwartz shares a few of his thoughts in the highlight reel below. Some of our favorite parts of the show included:

  • This year there was an especially great combination and blend in how the show presented different open-source database technologies. The conference did a great job bringing the ever-expanding industry together.
  • MongoDB showed up in a big way. MongoDB is emerging as a true leader among NoSQL tech. 
  • Percona XtraDB Cluster showed its true capabilities, deployed large-scale, in production. It's demonstrating success handling heavy workloads. 
  • Time series data asserted itself as a new category with special prominence. Several vendors at the show addressed this category specifically, alongside a few new open-source projects. 
  • The show offered an entire track on AWS, with much depth and a variety of approaches.

You can also watch a full recording of Baron's keynote address here, titled "The Future of Monitoring is Distributed."

But what was it really like to actually be at the conference, on the scene? Here are a few of the best shots from our Percona Live 2017 photo album.
