Upgrading MySQL with Orchestrator

In this blog post, we’ll discuss upgrading MySQL with Orchestrator. I recently had a client, Life360, that wanted to upgrade from Percona Server 5.5 to Percona Server 5.6, and implement GTID in their high transaction environment. They had co-masters and multiple read slaves. Orchestrator made this job much easier for us. My colleague, Tibi, recently posted […]

The situation where errant transaction bites you is a common DBA task: Failover. Now that tools like MHA have support for GTID replication (starting from 0.56 version), this protocol […]

How to setup a PXC cluster with GTIDs (and have async slaves replicating from it!)

 | February 20, 2015 |  Posted In: GTID, MySQL, Percona XtraBackup, Percona XtraDB Cluster
