Most popular HA techniques deployed are based on making services redundant, in particular by means of replication. This fits quite naturally in the MySQL universe as the MySQL server has provided a mature replication solution for around a decade now. Moreover, MySQL Replication is also a very popular framework when it comes to scaling out the datastore, both for read as well as for write operations when deployed together with sharding. Because of all of this, it plays a key role on many of today's data management infrastructures. Therefore, MySQL Replication strives to keep on meeting the ever tougher requirements of online services so that it can be deployed together with them in symbiotic harmony. It is a well known fact that MySQL 5.6 GA, includes an extensive set of new replication features. Continuing this trend, MySQL 5.7 is also packed with very interesting new enhancements. The next generation of replication features are scattered over several technical areas, including: better semi-synchronous replication; enhanced multi-threaded slave performance; improved monitoring; online configuration changes; options for fine tuning the replication stream performance; support for more advanced topologies; developer friendly frameworks and more. In addition, there is also ongoing work for exciting new replication frameworks such as the MySQL Group Replication plugin, a plugin that brings group communication techniques and database replication together. Seize the opportunity to learn about the new MySQL Replication features' internals, all the technical details and the roadmap itself. Come and learn what is already there in MySQL 5.7, how it works, and what's still in the making. Lets celebrate MySQL Replication.
