Most enterprises have a mixed IT environment with both Windows and Linux based workload. Further more, many people develop MySQL applications on Windows and run them on Linux. As companies move more and more of their workload to the cloud, we are often asked if and how they can run MySQL in the Microsoft Azure cloud. In this talk, we will discuss the options of running MySQL in Azure, the specific considerations related to the Azure cloud infrastructure, PXC as a recommended high availability MySQL solution, as well as PXC deployment options and benchmark test results in Azure.
