If you have not already done so, I encourage you to register for my “Best Practices for MySQL Scalability” Webinar which will take place on May 1st at 10 a.m. PST. This will be an overview presentation, led by me and providing a high-level look at the components of MySQL scalability: application architecture, MySQL version and configuration, choosing hardware and operating systems. For each area we’ll investigate the most important best practices. Talk to you on Wednesday, and remember to prepare your questions in advance to get the most value out of the Webinar!
More info: MySQL scalability depends on getting many things right including the architecture, hardware, operating system, MySQL version, MySQL configuration, schema design and indexing, and query design. To avoid having any one of them become the bottleneck that limits the scalability of the entire system, you need to follow best practices in all of these technology areas. Each area deserves its own webinar so we won’t go into the trenches to explore every one in depth. Instead, we will provide an overview of MySQL scalability which highlights the most important considerations and best practices for each of these areas. Register now!
