Rackspace Database Experts at Percona Live Data Performance Conference

As the volume of data continues to grow exponentially, open source technologies can provide IT developers and administrators better ways to improve the power and performance of databases.

At Rackspace, we know first-hand that scaling databases and managing them effectively is not easy to do. We power more than 30,000 mission-critical database servers to help drive measurable business value for our customers.

A critical part of our secret sauce is our people — our technologists, data scientists and administrators who are skilled in everything from Redis and polyglot persistence to NoSQL and MongoDB. Our managed database service helps consumers identify the right data architecture and mix of supporting database technologies, enabling users to focus on building new apps and improving their core business.

Next week, several of our most accomplished data specialists will be in Amsterdam for three days of data conversations at the Percona Live Data Performance Conference. Percona is an opportunity for us to listen to the MySQL, NoSQL and Internet of Things community and learn more about how we can continue to drive data performance success for our customers.

Rackspace’s Chief Data Technologist Kenny Gorman, Principal Engineer Kim Wilkins and Database Administrator David Murphy will present strategies for tackling data performance challenges. If you’ll be at Percona next week, swing by a Rackspace speaking session to learn how you can optimize productivity of your existing database ecosystem.
