The MySQL world is over 20 years old. In that time, many solutions have come and gone, many others have evolved, and even more have been created to provide solutions around high availability. Colin Charles explores all of these alternatives in an unbiased nature with a particular focus on open source solutions.
The MySQL world is full of trade-offs, and choosing a high-availability (HA) solution is no exception. How do you choose between MySQL replication, MHA, DRBD, Tungsten, and Galera Cluster? Do you integrate Pacemaker and Heartbeat like Percona Replication Manager? Is NDB Cluster right for your workload? The cloud brings even more fun as geographical redundancy is rolled in. There are now even “modern” tools to assist in automation like Orchestrator, Consul, MariaDB MaxScale, and MySQL Router.
Join Colin to figure out some of the answers as he walks you through MySQL HA options and when you will apply them.
