Welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we discuss the latest news and perspectives in the world of cloud native computing. For this week’s episode, we spoke with Peter Zaitsev, CEO of the open source database software and services company Percona. This week, Percona held its own virtual 24-hour virtual conference, Percona Live Online, where open source, databases and cloud native computing were all discussed. So we grilled Zaitsev about how traditional SQL databases operate in a cloud native world, as well as about Percona’s newly announced performance and optimization package for MongoDB.
TNS editorial and marketing director Libby Clark hosted this episode, alongside TNS senior editor Richard MacManus, and TNS managing editor Joab Jackson.
