Moving on to Percona

Yesterday was my last day at Express News. I have been working here for more than a year now and it has been a pretty good time. I had the opportunity to work with some great people and I am lucky that I have them as my friends.

I would like to thank all of my former co-workers for all the great experiences that I have shared with them and I wish them all the best of luck!

And, for those of you wondering where Iā€™m going, I accepted a job at Percona, in a predominantly MySQL-related role. Iā€™m sure its going to be lots of fun and loads of learning and I am very excited on becoming part of a very very smart team šŸ™‚

Ovais is a storage architect with keen focus on reliability, efficiency and performance of OLTP databases, more specifically MySQL. He currently works at Uber on ensuring storage reliability and scalability. Previously, he helped different web properties scale their MySQL infrastructure. He also worked at Percona as a Senior MySQL consultant and at a few other startups in various capacities.
