MySQL 5.6’s new replication featuresOn Wednesday I’ll be leading a webinar exploring MySQL 5.6’s new replication features. And yes, as usual I’ll deliver news on the good, the bad and the ugly (that is to say the benefits, limitations and challenges).

The webinar, appropriately titled, “New Replication Features in MySQL 5.6: Benefits, Limitations, and Challenges“, is scheduled for Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. You can register now to reserve your spot (this webinar will also be available for playback afterward).

This session aims at exploring some of these new replication features in MySQL 5.6 including:

  • Binlog checksums
  • Crash-safe replication
  • Multi-threaded replication
  • Global transaction identifiers

You will learn which problems they are likely to solve and how they can improve the performance or the resilience of your application. We’ll also discuss their limitations and the challenges you may face while trying to implement them.

I’ll be answering questions afterward but feel free to ask yours below in the comments.
