The Hazards of Multi-writing in a Dual-Master Setup
Once MySQL users discover dual-master replication, they are often tempted to allow their applications to write to both at the same time. This talk will explore the dangers of doing so as well as the (limited) possibilities it allows.
Illustrated examples will be used to show how this breaks down ACID compliance at fundamental levels.
This talk would be targeted to beginner/intermediate MySQL Users and DBAs.
