This Cluster Tutorial will show DBAs and normal MySQL users the wonder of the Cluster world. We will go through all the basic concepts of MySQL Cluster, node types, configuration files, and so on, as well as more advanced topics.

During the tutorial the participants will install and configure their own Clusters on their laptops on a premade image provided by us. We will go through the details in setting up and configuring the cluster. We will also demonstrate all the steps in the process live. At the end of the day each participant should be able to manage his cluster himself and create and install new ones at ease.

More advanced topics will also be discussed, such as Cluster performance tuning, tips and tricks as well as the NDB API and geographical replication. We will show the most common pitfalls and the usual best practices for setting up well performing clusters. The participants will thus not only walk away with a running cluster but also have a list of tips & tricks for optmizing the cluster usage.
