Galera Cluster New Features

Replication and High Availability Strategies

50 minutes conference
Galera Cluster for MySQL is a revolutionary step forward in MySQL high-availability. It provides synchronous, multi-master, active-active clustering for InnoDB. No longer do you have to make tradeoffs between data integrity/durability and failover time, nor do you have to accept a performance hit because you need high-availability. Galera Cluster version 3 was released in November 2013 and since then the work for next generation Galera Clustering has started. In this presentation we give an overview of Galera Cluster features and benefits and walk through the version 3 and later new features, including: * GTID compatibility, to help building large replication topologies with MySQL 5.6 or MariaDB 10 asynchronous replication * Interleaving MySQL replication with Galera replication is seamless way * Dynamic management for parallel replication * Weighted quorum calculation, to help cluster deployments in uneven networking topologies * Optimized WAN replication protocol and how it helps with high replication load across WAN networking
