  10. 10. © 2021 Percona Where do we go from here? 10
  11. 11. #1 Databases are evolving
  12. 12. © 2021 Percona | Confidential Databases are evolving 12 Over the past decade … ● Growing popularity of specialized databases ○ Examples include MongoDB, Cassandra, Redis, Neo4J, … ● Evolving needs of rapid application development ○ Inability of relational databases to offer effective solutions to modern problems ● Going beyond the bounds of SQL ○ Breaking free of the restrictions imposed by the relational model
  13. 13. © 2021 Percona | Confidential But then … ● Limitations of non-relational data ○ Converting data into information ○ From “No SQL” to “Not Only SQL” ● General purpose ‘relational’ features in specialized databases ○ ACID guarantees in MongoDB ○ Graph, JSON, & time series in Redis ○ Streaming capabilities in Cassandra ○ Relational data in SingleStore (MemSQL) Databases are evolving 13
  14. 14. © 2021 Percona | Confidential In the meanwhile … ● PostgreSQL fights back ○ Disciplined annual release cycle ○ Averaging 150+ new features ● Specialized features in PostgreSQL ○ GIS data and computations ○ Unstructured data, especially JSON ○ Time series and IoT data ○ Distributed workloads Databases are evolving 14
  15. 15. © 2021 Percona | Confidential PostgreSQL’s future adoption will be driven by how well it balances its relational capabilities with the need to scale modern applications. 15 Conclusion #1
  16. 16. #2 Decision-making is evolving
  17. 17. © 2021 Percona | Confidential Decision-making is evolving 17 Decision making of the past … ● 80s & 90s - Sales Led Growth ○ Top-down decisions ○ Handshake deals on golf courses and yachts ● 2000s & 10s - Marketing Led Growth ○ Still mostly top-down, though more distributed ○ Focus on inbound instead of sales-led ○ Reliance on brand development, advertising, & content
  18. 18. © 2021 Percona | Confidential Decision-making is evolving 18 Open Source Data Management Software Survey 2020 … and almost 50% respondents were DBAs! Take part in the 2021 survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/perconasurvey
  19. 19. © 2021 Percona | Confidential Decision-making is evolving 19 Today’s decision making … ● Product Led Growth ○ Bottom-up decisions ○ End users get to decide what tech to use ○ The only way to succeed is to delight the end user ● Application developers - The end users of databases ○ Application developers are not database experts ○ Focus on efficient development and ease-of-use for higher productivity ○ The drive behind cloud-native application development For far too long, database vendors have been able to get away with complicated UIs and poor UX
  20. 20. © 2021 Percona | Confidential PostgreSQL’s future adoption will be driven by how easy it is for application developers to deploy, use, and maintain their database. Conclusion #2 20
  21. 21. #3 The spirit of open source
  22. 22. © 2021 Percona | Confidential Why is open source so popular? ● The Community ○ Passion brings like-minded people together ○ Globally dispersed contributors bring diversity ○ Roadmaps based on what’s good for the project ● The Quality ○ Passion drives perfection ○ Obsession with quality drives reliability ○ Rapid development cycles lead to rapid project evolution Most of all, open source is popular because it is free The spirit of open source 22
  23. 23. © 2021 Percona | Confidential But wait - what does ‘free’ mean? The power of open source comes from freedom The spirit of open source 23 The freedom of choice The freedom of usage The freedom to scale The freedom to deploy - whenever & wherever The freedom to modify The freedom to distribute The freedom against vendor lock-in
  24. 24. © 2021 Percona | Confidential Conclusion #3 PostgreSQL’s future adoption will be driven by maintaining and promoting the spirit of open source software FREEDOM 24
  25. 25. What does that mean in today’s world?
  26. 26. © 2021 Percona | Confidential 26 The rush towards cloud-native application development
  27. 27. © 2021 Percona Kubernetes & Databases 27 Interesting relationship … Initially designed for stateless applications … and databases are the exact opposite of stateless Improved in recent years for stateful applications
  28. 28. © 2021 Percona | Confidential 28 Promise of Kubernetes Operator for your Application Stack - Management of all processes Self Healing - Robust mechanics to deal with node failure Framework - Automating complex database operations
  29. 29. © 2021 Percona | Confidential Our approach to Kubernetes 29 Operator for PostgreSQL Install directly or through Helm Chart Hardened with Enterprise Features Open Source Always!
  30. 30. © 2021 Percona | Confidential Unsolved Problems 30 Running Business Critical Stateful applications on Kubernetes is “Black Belt” level skill Not an easy task for non Kubernetes expert
  31. 31. © 2021 Percona | Confidential “State of Art” simplicity for databases 31
  32. 32. © 2021 Percona 32 Managing High Availability Database Patching Backups (Some) Performance Tuning Easy to Scale DBaaS Removes a lot of “Toil”
  33. 33. © 2021 Percona 33 “Don’t worry - DBaaS is open source compatible” ‘Hotel California’ compatibility
  34. 34. © 2021 Percona | Confidential 34 Our Vision Provide DBaaS Experience in Public and Private Cloud with Open Source Software and No Vendor Lock-in
