Need to test a new MySQL release? If the only spare “server” at your disposal is your laptop and resources are an issue, you can try MySQL Sandbox, an open source project that enables you to install and manage many instances of MySQL at once on your Linux or Mac laptop. Using this tool, you can install a new version of MySQL in a few seconds, without conflicts and without wasting resources. What’s more, MySQL Sandbox provides all the tools for managing and using your instances without complicated options and it can be used for tasks such as filtering binary logs, provisioning new slaves, and analyzing traffic. This presentation shows the principles and provides juicy demos of how to play with DB sandboxes on a laptop.
