If you’re following this blog, it’s quite likely you’re already aware of the Percona Live London 2014 conference coming up in just a few days. Just in case, though (you know, if you’re still looking for an excuse to sign up), I wanted to put a spotlight on the tutorial to be delivered by my esteemed colleagues Frédéric Descamps (@lefred) and Kenny Gryp (@gryp), and myself.

The past two years at Percona we’ve been spending a substantial amount of time working with customers taking their first steps into creating Highly Available MySQL environments built on Galera. Percona XtraDB Cluster allows you to get it up and running very fast, but as any weathered “HA” DBA will tell you, building the cluster is only the beginning. (Percona XtraDB Cluster is an open source (free) high-availability and high-scalability solution for MySQL clustering.)

Any cluster technology is likely to introduce a great amount of complexity to your environment, and in our tutorial we want to show you not only how to get started, but also how to avoid many of the operational pitfalls we’ve encountered. Our tutorial, Percona XtraDB Cluster in a nutshell, will be taking place on Monday 3 November and is a full-day (6 hours) session, with an intense hands-on approach.

We’ll be covering a great deal of practical topics, such as:

  • Things to keep in mind when migrating an existing environment over to PXC
  • How to manage and maintain the cluster, keeping it in good shape
  • Load balancing requests across the cluster
  • Considerations for deploying PXC in the cloud

Planning on attending? Be sure to come prepared! Given the hands-on approach of the tutorial, make sure you bring your laptop with enough disk space (~20GB) and processing power to run at least 4 small VirtualBox VM’s.

We look forward to seeing you there!
