High Availability, Disaster Recovery and Extreme Read Scaling using Binlog Servers

Replication & Backup
4 November 3:10pm - 4:00pm @ Sentosa 5-8

50 minutes conference
At Booking.com, we are adding new components to our replication architecture: Binlog Servers. Those will allow us to reach extreme number of slaves replicating from a single master (greater than 100 slaves and growing). We think that people having more modest replication installations can also benefit from Binlog Server as they ease high availability deployment and simplify remote site replication. Moreover, we are convinced that the Binlog Server will become an enabler for parallel replication, especially on remote site deployment. We will be happy to give you all the details during this talk.


Senior System Engineer, Booking.com
Since joining Booking.com in October 2013, Jean-François is working on growing the MySQL/MariaDB installations by removing replication bottlenecks (he also works on other engineering problems that are less relevant here). Some of his latest projects are making Parallel Replication run faster and deploying Binlog Servers. He also has a good understanding of replication in general and a respectable understanding of InnoDB, Linux and TCP/IP. Before Booking.com, he worked as a System/Network/Storage Administrator in a Linux/VMWare environment, as an Architect for a Mobile Services Provider, and as a C and Java Programmer in an IT Service Company. Even before that, when he was learning computer science, J-F studied cache consistency in distributed systems and network group communication protocols.
