Alibaba Cloud RDS is the leading cloud database in China with millions of database instances are
running on it. However, the diversity and complexity of the mission-critical applications using it
brought a huge challenge to RDS, scalability - a long-time pain point. To solve the problem, in
the middle of 2018 and after a careful evaluation, an elegant solution was found in MariaDB
MaxScale. So far, the deep synergy of MariaDB MaxScale and RDS has proved very successful
as thousands of high-demand customers of RDS are benefiting from a much-improved
experience. In this presentation, we are going to share the following topics:
- How Alibaba Cloud is using MariaDB MaxScale
- Best practices when leveraging MariaDB MaxScale with Alibaba Cloud RDS
- Next steps and future plans for MariaDB MaxScale and Alibaba Cloud RDS
