The Google Cloud Way For a More Resilient MySQL at Scale

Thursday 4:10 PM - 4:35 PM

@ Texas 1

MySQL/MariaDBOpen Source Databases

25 minutes conference



Being hosted in the cloud is not just about having someone to take care of your database servers for you. It's also about how to improve, contribute, and implement best practices of MySQL to better serve customers. Did you know that we changed how disk block sizes work to improve InnoDB general performance? How about how enforcing GTID yields a significantly more resilient replication? Come join me on a journey about how we thoughtfully orchestrated our hardware, Container-Optimized OS (the Kubernetes Operating System), and MySQL itself to deliver world-class performance and reliability in our product.
