Should you migrate to Percona XtraDB Cluster?

Interest in Percona XtraDB Cluster / Galera has been high ever since we introduced the product in 2012.  I typically have a conversation about Galera and Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) at least once a week with a consulting customer who wants to know if it will be a good fit for their application.  Last week I gave a webinar entitled “Migrating to Percona XtraDB Cluster.”

I covered everything in the webinar that I feel it is important for someone to know who is considering Galera and I’d suggest anyone who wants Should you migrate to Percona XtraDB Cluster / Galera?a brief overview of PXC/Galera spends an hour watching the recording.  There were many questions asked in the webinar, but I answered all of them regarding Percona XtraDB Cluster. Access to the webinar is free along with download of the accompanying slides.

    one hint to a problem I searched for several days…:
    Eliminate the “10 second”-timeout out of /usr/bin/clustercheck !!!!

    It’s counterproductive because … mysql has default timeouts and if you use haproxy there you also could manage timeouts!

    A constant timeout here (in this script) on the other hand would take your node down from the view of your app when there’s no need for that!!!!

    Try the difference!
