WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

  • High availability

    Get an in-depth overview of the high availability (HA) options for MariaDB TX in this workshop, from aysnchronous and semi-synchronous replication with automatic failover to synchronous clustering, and gain hands-on experience setting up and testing different HA configurations.

  • Advanced security

    Go beyond the basics and get a detailed overview of advanced security options in MariaDB TX, from transparent data encryption and pluggable authentication to query blocking and dynamic data masking, and gains hands-on experience setting up a fully-secured database with MariaDB Remote DBAs.

  • Performance tuning

    Discover best practices and tips for maximizing the performance of MariaDB TX in this workshop, where MariaDB’s Remote DBA team will highlight important configuration parameters and share how to optimize everything from queries and indexes to storage and replication through a series of hands-on exercises.

  • Modern analytics

    Learn how distributed, columnar storage and massively parallel processing (MPP) work in this MariaDB AX workshop, where MariaDB engineers will explain the architecture of MariaDB AX and walk attendees through installation, data loading and querying with built-in functions and distributed user-defined functions.

Agenda Track Descriptions

  • Real-world case studies

    MariaDB customers will share business and technical database requirements and why they chose to standardize on MariaDB, current and future use cases, what they learned after migrating from a proprietary database, how they run on container infrastructure and their overall experience with MariaDB thus far.

  • Product internals and roadmap

    MariaDB engineers will go under the hood to explain how things like Oracle Database compatibility and different storage engines work while MariaDB product managers will provide an overview of the next release and an update on strategic initiatives, including DBaaS, machine learning and MariaDB Manager.

  • Operations and infrastructure

    MariaDB solution engineers will share best practices for DBAs in the areas of HA/DR, performance, scalability and security as well as recommendations and tips for migrating from Oracle Database and how to get started with containers using Docker Compose, Kubernetes Helm charts and Red Hat OpenShift.

  • Modern app development

    Learn how to build web, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) applications and microservices in Java, .NET and Node.js using modern SQL, built-in JSON functions, geospatial objects, temporal queries and user-defined functions – and how to write powerful but elegant queries with ease.

  • Scalable interactive analytics

    Get to know MariaDB AX and discover how innovators are using distributed, columnar databases to query 100s of billions of rows in seconds with ad hoc, interactive queries (and no indexes) – and how to incorporate streaming data and machine learning with Apache Kafka and Apache Spark.
