Galera is a generic replication service, which can be used to build clusters of practically any transactional DBMS. Galera replication provides nice features like:

  • multi-master operation, where write conflicts are resolved automatically
  • synchronous replication, no lost transactions
  • extreme performance, write scalability
  • client transparency, looks and feels like native DBMS

Codership has integrated Galera replication in the InnoDB storage engine, and the resulting MySQL/Galera cluster product has been published as a production-ready GA release in December 2009. MySQL/Galera releases are open source and is available in Codership and launchpad sites.

The presentation will give on overview of Galera replication and gives tutorial guidance on how to setup and start using MySQL/Galera cluster.

Alex started his career in DBMS clustering development in 2003 at Continuent, where he was hooked up on synchronous replication. After that he joined R&D team at Meshcom Inc, learning the ways of mesh networking, embedded SW development and Scrum process management. There he got this crazy idea that running a software company can be fun and joined as a partner in Codership, specializing in group communication system development.
