23 April 3:50pm - 4:40pm @ Ballroom F

MySQL Cluster is perhaps the most badly named and most misunderstood product from the MySQL eco-system. Despite the name it is a completely separate product from the standard MySQL database. Due to the distributed nature of MySQL Cluster, it has a far more complicated architecture than a standard MySQL database. In this presentation, we will describe the architecture of the "MySQL Cluster" product and how the process and data flow takes place between the nodes of the cluster. We will help you understand when to consider MySQL Cluster, and to see the warning signs of when MySQL Cluster is not going

to be a fit.
