Join us at Percona Live Data Performance Conference, April 18-21 Santa Clara


At Intel we are have been working on the optimization of the Ceph storage architecture for many of the key IT applications including MySQL, cloud, and big data. There have been a number of enhancements around the use of solid state drives (SSD) for Ceph that has caught the attention of the open source community. This work is important as CIOs see the promise of cloud and rethinking how open source can assist them as a cost effective environment for private cloud deployment.

I was excited to hear that Intel will be sharing our learnings at the Percona Live Data Performance Conference held in Santa Clara April 18-21. Come to Percona Live next week to join others in the open source community and learn from the best minds working on MySQL, NoSQL, cloud, big data and Internet of Things (IoT). Whether you are a DBA, developer or architect you can learn from your peers on the best methods for open source IT services on Ceph.

At this year’s conference, Intel is sponsoring the Data in the Cloud track. Intel solution architects will be giving 3 talks in the Big Data track. And, Reddy Chagam, Intel’s chief Software Defined Storage Architect, will be on the keynote panel. Here is a brief look at the panel and 4 Intel breakout session talks you should plan to attend.

We look forward to seeing you at Percona Live.

Keynote Panel with Reddy Chagam, Principal Engineer and Chief SDS Architect, Intel

Wednesday April 20 at 9:25am

Data in the Cloud Keynote Panel: Cloudy with a chance of running out of disk space? Or Sunny times ahead?

As larger and larger datasets move to the cloud new challenges and opportunities emerge in handling such workloads. New technologies, revamped products, and a never ending stream of idea’s follow in the wake of this advance. These aim to improve the performance and manageability of cloud based data, but are they enough? What issues still need to be worked out? and Where are we going as an industry?

Accelerating Ceph for Database Workloads with an all PCIe SSD Cluster

Tuesday April 19, 3:50pm in Room 203

Reddy Chagam, Principal Engineer and Chief SDS Architect, Intel

Tushar Gohad, Senior Engineer, Intel

PCIe SSDs are becoming increasingly popular for deploying latency sensitive workloads such as database and big data n enterprise and service provider environments. Customers are exploring low latency workloads on Ceph using PCIe SSDs to meet their performance needs.  In this session, we will look at a high IOPS, low latency workload deployment on Ceph, performance analysis on all PCIe configurations, best practices and recommendations.

Performance of Percona Server for MySQL on Intel Server Systems using HDD, SATA SSD, and NVMe SSD as Different Storage Mediums

Tuesday April 19, 11:30am in Room 203

Ken LeTourneau, Solutions Architect, Intel

This talk looks at the performance of Percona Server for MySQL for Linux running on the same Intel system but with three different storage configurations. We will look at and compare the performance of (1) a RAID of HDD vs. (2) a RAID of SATA SSD vs. (3) a RAID of NVMe SSD.  In the talk we’ll cover the hardware and system configuration and then discuss results of TPC-C and TPC-H benchmarks. Then we’ll look at the overall system costs including hardware and software, and cost per transaction/query based on overall costs and benchmark results.

Increase MySQL Database Performance with Intel® SSD plus Cache Acceleration Software

Wednesday April 20 1pm in Room 203

David Tuhy, Senior Director of Business Development Intel, Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group, Intel

The primary storage for many of today’s databases is usually arrays of rotational media which can typically quickly becomes the largest bottleneck for database application performance. Improving database application performance by replacing slower HDDs with faster solid-state drives (SSDs) and providing a method to cache frequently accessed files can greatly improve application performance and reduce support costs. This talk shows how Intel® SSD with Intel® CAS can increase database performance immediately, without a modification or change to the existing applications or storage media back-end.
