Synchronous Revelation

4 November 9:40am - 10:05am

Duration: 
50 minutes conference
What is synchronous replication? For many it is just the same as asynchronous, only safer and slower. But is it all that is to that? (At this point you're probably guessing "no?") In this talk Alex will ponder eternal questions: what is "synchronous"? is it "replication"? and how new MySQL server UUIDs are relevant to that?
