Fact: MySQL is the most commonly used database in OpenStack deployments. Of course that includes a number of MySQL variants – standard MySQL by Oracle, MariaDB, Percona Server, MySQL Galera, Percona XtraDB Cluster, etc.
However, there are many misconceptions and myths around the pros and cons of these MySQL flavors. Join me and my friend Jay Pipes of Mirantis next Wednesday (Dec. 10) at 10 a.m. Pacific and we’ll dispel some of these myths and provide a clearer picture of the strengths and weaknesses of each of these flavors.
This free Percona webinar, titled “MySQL and OpenStack Deep Dive,” will also illuminate the pitfalls to avoid when migrating between MySQL flavors – and what architectural information to take into account when planning your OpenStack MySQL database deployments.
We’ll also discuss replication topologies and techniques, and explain how the Galera Cluster variants differ from standard MySQL replication.
Finally, in the latter part of the session, we’ll take a deep dive into MySQL database performance analysis, diving into the results of a Rally run showing a typical Nova workload. In addition, we’ll use Percona Toolkit’s famed pt-query-digest tool to determine if a synchronously replication database cluster like the free Percona XtraDB Cluster is a good fit for certain OpenStack projects.
