MySQL Scalability: Dimensions, Methods and Technologies
This talk will present the different dimensions in which attendees will need to scale up their MySQL installations as their enterprises grow. First we will discuss each dimension of scalability with details and examples. We will then survey methods of scaling the MySQL-based technology stack, covering techniques of systems engineering and technologies available to solve the problems enterprises face today. Scalability directions include challenges of data size, complexity, and query rates. Methods and technologies will span the whole technology stack and include schema splitting, types of sharding, data model optimisation and data materialisation, application design, and more.
