Selecting the most appropriate solution for a MySQL HA infrastructure is as much a business and philosophical decision as it is a technical one, but often the choice is made without adequately considering all three perspectives. When too much attention is paid to one of these aspects at the cost of the others, the resulting system may be over-engineered, poorly-performing, and/or various other flavors of suboptimal.
On Wednesday, June 5, at 10 a.m. PDT (1700 UTC), I will be presenting a webinar entitled, Choosing a MySQL HA Solution, in which we’ll explore the topic of MySQL HA from each of these perspectives. The goal will be to motivate your thinking about HA in a holistic fashion and help guide you towards asking the right questions when considering a new or upgraded HA deployment.
This webinar will be both technical and non-technical in nature, beginning with a discussion of some general HA principles and some common misconceptions. We will then explore some of the more well-known MySQL HA tools and technologies available today (largely grouped into those which use traditional MySQL replication, those which use some other MySQL-level replication, and those which replicate at some other layer of the system stack) and then conclude with some typical use cases where a given approach may be well-suited or particularly contraindicated.
If this topic interests you, then register today to reserve your spot. I look forward to speaking with all of you next week.
