Using and Managing MariaDB Server
The MariaDB Server is loaded with lots of new (and/or different) features to increase data integration, performance, availability, scalability and orchestration. If you happen to be a DBA with a MariaDB Server instance or a developer wanting to use the different features, this is the tutorial for you to learn about the differences and how to get on with your daily work. This is a tutorial accompanied with exercises (it is not necessarily hands-on). We will cover these topics: - MariaDB Server up to 10.1: new features, differences with MariaDB 5.5 and MySQL 5.5/5.6, and 10.1 versus MySQL 5.7 - Install and run the MariaDB Server - Getting familiar with the changes from an administration standpoint - Learning the use cases for the myriad engines that exist (including data integration, sharding, etc.) - Hands on multi-source replication, parallel replication, usage of replication domains and integration with Galera replication - and all the rest that comes with MariaDB Server and how you can use it to your benefit Note: There will be more focus on the features and using them (say, KILL enhancements, progress reporting, etc.) rather than just focus on storage engines. So come alone to learn about what MariaDB offers!
