Description

MySQL Group Replication is a new plugin that implements an exciting extension to the proven and long standing MySQL Replication technology. It leverages advanced distributed protocols to ultimately provide to the end user features such as data replication, high availability, split brain protection and automation. It can be deployed in single-primary mode (default), in which primary fail-over is handled gracefully and automatically, or in multi-master mode, in which row level conflicts are detected and handled automatically as well. Regardless of the deployment mode, the end result is that this new addition provides a consistent and dependable replicated state machine, thus effectively enabling a fault-tolerant MySQL database service. Come and learn all about this replication plugin. At the end of the session, you will be able to understand how it works, the use cases it address, its limitations and also its roadmap ahead. Moreover, you will get to know how it fits in the overall high availability roadmap at MySQL. Take the opportunity to discuss and engage directly with the engineers behind the product about how this new plugin can help you expand your business on top of a MySQL database server.
