Docker and Galera: Stateful in a stateless World!

Docker is becoming more mainstream and adopted by users as a method to package and deploy self-sufficient applications in primarily stateless Linux containers. It's a great toolset on top of OS level virtualization (LXC a.k.a containers) and plays well in the world of micro services. There are a number ways to provide persistent storage in docker containers and in this presentation we will talk about how to setup a persistence data service with docker that can be teared down and brought up across hosts and containers.

The business model of the company behind MongoDB is to sell premium support and administration tools to maintain and monitor MongoDB. As an alternative there are (open source) solutions that could make your life as a DBA easier. In this session, we will go beyond the deployment phase and show you how you can automate tasks, how to monitor a cluster and how to manage MongoDB overall.

Polyglot Persistence for the MySQL & MongoDB DBA

The introduction of DevOps in organisations has changed the development process, and perhaps introduced some challenges. Developers, in addition to their own preferred programming languages, also have their own preference for backend storage. Extending your infrastructure from only MySQL, to deploying other storage backends like MongoDB and PostgreSQL, implies you have to also monitor, manage and scale them. This session, we will show you how!
