Organizations need an appropriate disaster recovery plan to mitigate the impact of downtime. But how much should a business invest? Designing a highly available system comes at a cost, and not all businesses and indeed not all applications need five 9's availability.
We will explain fundamental disaster recovery concepts and walk you through the relevant options from the MySQL & MariaDB ecosystem to meet different tiers of disaster recovery requirements, and demonstrate how to automate an appropriate disaster recovery plan.
In this talk, we'll go over some of the high level monitoring concepts that PMM enables for you, the CEO, to leverage in order to speak the same language as your technical team. We'll cover:
Which thresholds to follow for CEOs
Host-specific resources - CPU, Memory, Disk, Network
Database-specific resources - Connections, Queries per Second, Slow Queries, Replication lag
Building custom KPI metrics using PMM
Visualize Application logic
Combine Application and Databases under one view
Over the past few years, VidaXL has become a European market leader in the online retail of slow moving consumer goods. When a company achieved over 50% year over year growth for the past 9 years, there is hardly enough time to overhaul existing systems. This means existing systems will be stretched to the maximum of their capabilities, and often additional performance will be gained by utilizing a large variety of datastores.
Polyglot persistence reigns in rapidly growing environments and the traditional one-size-fits-all strategy of monoglots is over.
VidaXL has a broad landscape of datastores, ranging from traditional SQL data stores, like MySQL or PostgreSQL alongside more recent load balancing technologies such as ProxySQL, to document stores like MongoDB and search engines such as SOLR and Elasticsearch.
