MySQL Group Replication: Multi-Master HA

MySQL Group Replication: Multi-Master HA

Experience level: 
50 minutes conference
High Availability


There is an exciting MySQL plugin that provides multi-master update everywhere with built-in HA capabilities. The plugin is called MySQL Group Replication and it combines distributed systems technologies with database replication. High availability is achieved through redundancy, by consistently replicating data throughout a set of MySQL servers. Multi-master update everywhere is based on row-level conflict detection and on the fact that the plugin leverages distributed coordination among servers to deploy consistent conflict handling. Thus the system behaves as a replicated state machine. At its core is a group communication service providing reliable and dependable message passing for a group of MySQL servers. This enables automatic and consistent coordination between all the participants in the group. The net result is a fault-tolerant MySQL data store. Come and learn about the latest developments about Group Replication. Moreover, learn how you can deploy it and set it up on your infrastructure.
