Strata Conference 2018: What You Missed

We just got back from the west coast where our own CEO Baron Schwartz presented at Strata Data Conference 2018.

Baron held a session, Why Nobody Cares About Your Anomaly Detection at the event and in case you missed it we wanted to make sure we passed it along! In the session, Baron shares why he now sees anomaly detection as a very limited tool, to be used for specific purposes and with careful attention to design and context (including culture) and only to be considered as a part of an overall solution—not a solution itself.  View the entire presentation below.

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.
