Like its predecessor, MySQL 5.7 will be a ground breaking release. The latest Development Milestone Release (DMR) shows very appealing replication features. They reduce the administrative overhead, provide a much improved user experience, and enable running MySQL smoothly both at scale and/or in very tightly coupled network environments such as in a cluster. This makes it a perfect fit for many use case scenarios and thus match the requirements virtually of any demanding business case. The new and exciting replication enhancements cover many areas, such as semi-synchronous replication, with different degrees of synchrony and other extensions, multi-threaded slave, which can operate beyond schemas, performance schema tables that expose interesting, live, replication stats. And this is just the tip of the iceberg, there are further improvements on scalability, performance, flexibility, and even more to come. On top of this, there are feature previews staging in the lab which are also very interesting. Join the engineers behind the product and learn what is new in the latest MySQL 5.7 DMR and in the lab. Get to know the next generation of replication features that will help you build rock solid, scalable and resilient database services able to keep up with the most demanding work and fault-loads.
