Aside from traditional master-slave setup used mostly for HA and read scale-out, there is an established history of attempts at multi-master replication with MySQL.
In the presentation, we discuss the use cases for multi-master replication:
We compare how approaches like MMM, DRDB, NDB and Galera fare with regards to scalability, high-availability and transparency for application. How these solutions detect conflicts and resolve them. And how much application should be involved in resolving multi-master conflicts, or in avoiding them with each multi-master solution.
