The evolution of MySQL replication shows that there is a lot of effort put into reducing operations cost and minimize administration overhead. Thus MySQL DBAs and DevOps can spend more time expanding their infrastructure, rather than catering for it.
Many different areas have been enhanced. For example security, operations, fail-over, observability, failure detection, consistency, split-brain protection and primary election, flexible replication workflows and more.
This session highlights the new replication features in MySQL 8.0. Those that were released pre and post-GA. Come and learn, directly from the engineers, how the new features help you operate, sustain, and extend your MySQL Replication infrastructure.
