You there, Linux administration god -- did they mention you also have a small to huge gaggle of MySQL instances that you need to take care of when you were hired? Well databases are the wanton, needy brats of the software world and will provide you quite the wild ride if you are not prepared. This session covers what every Linux admin needs to know to keep their databases happy, friendly, and efficient. Do you know if SSD really work? Where do you spend you upgrade budget for the best results? What replication strategies take the load off your main server, feed Hadoop clusters, or provide 'save your butt' redundancy? What tools do you need to ease user admin, backups, query tuning, and generally make your life easier? All this and more in a fast paced session you need to attend.
