Cross-posted from Percona Blog.

Welcome to the next installment of our talks with Percona Live Data Performance Conference 2016 speakers! In this series of blogs, we’ll highlight some of the speakers that will be at this year’s conference, as well as discuss the technologies and outlooks of the speakers themselves. Make sure to read to the end to get a special Percona Live registration bonus! In this installment, our Percona Live featured talk with Sugu Sougoumarane, Infrastructure & Storage Engineer at YouTube is about Vitess: The Complete Story. I had a chance to speak with Sugu and learn a bit more about YouTube and Vitess:

Vitess 2.0 is now beta!

That means we've accomplished all our planned overhauls of client APIs and backward-incompatible protocol changes. See the release notes for what's new.

We're now working closely with several users who are evaluating Vitess and providing feedback on the use cases that are important for their particular applications and production environments. If you're at the same stage, we welcome you to join the discussion by posting on the mailing list.

We're also trying out Slack for more conversational topics. We don't have an automatic invite system in place, so please email to request an invite if you're interested in joining the channel.

Lastly, we're starting our own blog (seeded with our previous guest posts on other blogs). This will be a place for our engineers to go more in-depth into various parts of Vitess.

Thanks, and happy scaling everyone!
