"Percona Live is a must-attend event for anyone really engaged with the open source database community. Each year, we look forward to reconnecting with our peers, customers, and friends -- the developers, architects, and managers who are charting the future of the high-performance data tier. Percona Live is where the community literally envisions and starts building what's next in databases, and where the open source and commercial ecosystems intersect. Our team is proud to be part of it, to learn, and to share best practices aimed at improving business outcomes through better understanding and visibility into database performance."

Eero Teerikorpi, Founder & CEO, Continuent
"Continuent is very excited to once again be participating in Percona Live, the premier open source database conference. Two years ago, Continuent was acquired by VMware as the best-of-breed data services company to build their DBaaS solution. Changes in those plans led Continuent to be spun off back into an independent company. Continuent offers business-critical data replication and database clustering solutions. Our customers run billions of dollars' worth of business on our multi-site/multi-master clusters and use our advanced replication solutions to replicate in real-time from MySQL and Oracle into Analytics/Big Data."
