MySQL/MariaDBOpen Source Databases

3 hours tutorial



Everyone wants to have a highly available (HA) database. But which solution do you choose and what should you consider?
In this training session, we will look into a wide set of existing and new HA solutions, including
1. MySQL replication based HA solutions (MHA, Orchestrator) and routing options (ProxySQL, HA Proxy)
2. Clustering solutions (Percona XtraDB Cluster, MySQL NDB Cluster)
3. Cloud-based solutions (AWS RDS/Aurora, Google Cloud SQL)
4. Container-based solutions (Kubernetes/Openshift)

We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each solution and show some basic demos.
