The Complete MariaDB Tutorial
The MariaDB Server is loaded with lots of new features to increase data integration, performance, availability, scalability and orchestration. It is significantly “different enough” from MySQL that if you’re a DBA or developer, you’ll learn new things from this talk. This is a semi-hands-on tutorial. The attendees will be told to download a VM before the tutorial, and there will be limited USB keys at the session handed out with material, software, examples and a VM that can be used to explore the functionalities that have been present since MariaDB Server’s inception, with a focus on the features in the 5.5/10.0/10.1 series (coverage will also be on the upcoming 10.2 series). We will use VirtualBox VMs and AWS instances for labs and tests. It is highly recommend for attendees to bring: - A Microsoft Windows/Mac OS X/Linux laptop with VirtualBox pre-installed - Min 4GB RAM - minimum 20GB of disk space to host the VMs on a local drive We will cover these topics: - MariaDB Server up to 10.2: new features, differences with MariaDB 5.5 and MySQL 5.5/5.6, and 10.1/10.2 versus MySQL 5.7 - Install and run the MariaDB Server - MariaDB administration from a DBA standpoint - Learning about the CONNECT and SPIDER engines - Hands on multi-source replication, parallel replication, usage of replication domains and integration with Galera replication (new in MariaDB 10.1 - one single binary now) - MariaDB Galera Cluster and MariaDB MaxScale as a front-end - Plus all the rest that comes with MariaDB Server and how you can use it to your benefit
