Replication technology has seen plenty of improvement lately. Innovation has arrived from all directions, starting from the MySQL team at Oracle, and third parties like MariaDB, Percona, Continuent. There is much choice around, especially if we take into account the software that is still in development (such as MySQL 5.7, MariaDB 10.1). This tutorial shows what features are available, describing it in general terms, and for each one compares the implementation from various vendors. Attendees of this tutorial will see a comprehensive coverage of * global transaction identifiers * crash safe tables * parallel replication and extraction * multi source replication * replication metadata There will be also limited coverage of features not implemented by many parties, such as * heterogeneous replication * semi-synchronous replication * delayed replication * filters
