MariaDB includes a lot of new features that developers can take advantage of.
MariaDB 10 is loaded with lots of new features to increase data integration, performance, availability, scalability and orchestration. This is a hands-on tutorial. The attendees will receive a USB key with handout material, software, examples and a VM that can be used to explore the functionalities of MariaDB 10. We will use Virtual Desktop VMs and AWS instances for lab and tests.

In the third edition (2012) of High Performance MySQL, MHA usage is described as: "anyone other than Yoshinori who is using it in production, and we haven't used it ourselves." Little known to the authors, we've spent quite a lot of time working on MHA and figuring out its kinks. It has also been deployed in many a production environment over the past year.
