Webinar: MyISAM to InnoDB migration

Register now for a free Percona webinar about migrating your MyISAM databases to InnoDB. Save the date: Dec 1, 2010 at 9:00 AM PST (California) time.

Update: the date was originally listed as December 2nd, but that was a mistake. It’s December 1st.

We know that not everyone can attend expensive conferences that require travel. We’re going to be doing highly technical webinars regularly, to help those people get some of the same kind of content they might get at the conferences where we present. This is our first such webinar.

With the change in default storage engine from MyISAM to InnoDB in the upcoming MySQL 5.5 release, we expect that a lot of users will be wanting to learn more about the benefits of switching to InnoDB, as well as topics such as:

  • What kind of contraindications there are
  • What the process might look like
  • How much time and effort (and cost) will be involved
  • How to decide whether you should switch, or stay on MyISAM

Matt Yonkovit will cover those and many more topics. Register now to reserve your spot in this webinar. The webinar is free, but space is limited, so be sure to sign up soon. Again, the date is Dec 1, 2010 at 9:00 AM PST.

    Nice, thanks for putting this together!

    The registration website and confirmation email mention December 1st vs Dec 2nd in your posting. Can you confirm the date?

      It turns out there was a mistake and it’s on December 1st, not the 2nd. I’ll update the blog post. Thanks for letting us know!

    MyISAM is a fantastic format for ruining your data. Other than temporary tables or read only search tables, it’s something i avoid like the plague.
