Getting new t-shirts printed as give-aways for the much anticipated Percona Live Europe Conference in Amsterdam next week is not unlike creating and spinning up lots of MySQL instances. Some might prefer to do so themselves, manually, while others will look at automating most of the required steps (as it takes quite a bit of time to produce 100s of t-shirts by hand …). 

Given the database automation & management folks that we are at Severalnines, we went for automation ;-)

First you need to design the schema: 

Then build your first instance: 

Once you have your first stable instance, you can start to replicate and spin up more: 

Of course, the Severalnines Team will be at the Percona Live conference in Amsterdam to talk about open source databases clustering (in addition to handing out hot off the press s9s t-shirts). So do come by our booth and say hello! It’ll be the booth with all the … 9s ;-)

We also have two colleagues who will speak at the conference as part of the talk schedule as follows.
