Keep your MySQL backend online no matter what + TGIF Contest!

 | October 7, 2011 |  Posted In: Events and Announcements, MySQL


On Oct. 25th I will be presenting my conference session “Keep your MySQL backend online no matter what” at the Percona Live London Conference. Considering their is a variety of highly knowledgeable MySQL experts speaking at this event I wanted to give my talk a special plug so you won’t miss THIS knowledgeable MySQL expert speak! 😉

My talk focuses on architecture that will help keep your MySQL backends online when you simply can’t afford them to go down. This is not about one single solution, but a combination of different technologies working together. This architecture is built on MMM, HeartBeat, LVS, ldirectord and some custom scripts. As a real world example I will demonstrate how this solution was applied for a payment processor website behind an alexa top50 website, where data consistency was important. In addition I will show an example for another alexa top 500 website, where downtime and customer satisfactory was the numer 1 priority.
