7 Key MySQL Clustering Technologies to Consider: A Joint 451 Research/Percona Webinar

Hear Matt Aslett, Research Director of Data Management and Analytics from 451 Research, and Peter Zaitsev, CEO of Percona,  discuss MySQL® high availability clustering. MySQL clusters for high availability are a tried and tested approach to improve database scalability and resiliency. However, the benefits of clustering databases have to be balanced against the challenges. The discussion will focus on seven clustering approaches you should understand before deciding on the best clustering technology for your organization.

Matt will present an overview of the trends driving adoption of clustering technology. He will also discuss the key technologies and criteria that developers and administrators need to consider when thinking about clustering, in order to improve their likelihood of success.

Peter will then present a technical comparison of the various clustering technology approaches and how they meet the criteria described by Matt. Approaches Peter will cover technologies based on:

  • MySQL replication
  • Storage level replication and shared storage, such as DRBD and SAN
  • MySQL Cluster by Oracle®
  • Galera, such as Percona XtraDB Cluster
  • External replication, such as Continuent Tungsten
  • Proxy, such as Parelastic
  • MySQL-compatible standalone implementations, such as Clustrix and MemSQL

At the end of this webinar, you will know what to consider when implementing a MySQL clustering solution for your business and how the various approaches to clustering might fit your unique needs.
