Future-Proofing MySQL for the World-Wide Data Revolution

But how do you handle requirements to spread data across regions or add real-time analytics? How do you scale up to Big Data on cloud platforms? At Continuent we believe the answer is to embed off-the-shelf MySQL in "data fabrics" consisting of modular data services tied together by advanced replication.
