Data in the Cloud


After some years, MySQL with Galera became the most common solution for synchronous replication. The cloud (and EC2 in particular) was one of the platforms that most successfully employed MySQL/Galera installations. This year with Aurora, Amazon introduced an alternative solution that use all the flexibility of AWS and simplicity of RDS. This presentation describes the behavior of both MySQL/Galera and Aurora, showing the details of how the two different solutions behave when dealing with same load. We will highlight the strong point of each, and which represents the best tool - depending on the needs of the situation. Attendees will be able to make an informed decision on what kind of solutions will be the most efficient, in respect to their actual requirements.
