AUSTIN, Texas – April 20, 2017 – SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its participation at Percona® Live Open Source Database Conference, April 24-27, 2017, in Santa Clara, California. At the event, SolarWinds database performance evangelist and Oracle® ACE, Janis Griffin, will present on best practices for performance tuning MySQL® on Thursday, April 27, from 1:50-2:40 p.m. PDT.

“Our research shows that databases are one of the top three infrastructure elements IT organizations are migrating to the cloud. While virtualized environments offer many benefits, they also introduce challenges for database professionals as they have less visibility into virtualization configuration and how it impacts performance,” said Janis Griffin, database performance evangelist, SolarWinds. “I’m looking forward to sharing my expertise with the Percona community through my session on MySQL Query tuning where I’ll be providing advice for optimization and tuning to accelerate database performance.”
