MySQLboy @ MySQL Conf 2012 [part 1/2]

The Keynote talks included some words from Peter and Baron of Percona, Martin Mickos now of Eucalyptus Systems, and Brian Aker of HP.

It was interesting to watch the demo video on creating new instances as well as the snapshots of existing instances to create cloned instances. I would like to review this for myself and now will since the HP guys were offering to send beta access to the attendees.
