So you're tasked with designing a new MySQL powered application, or with refining the architecture of the old one to meet new challenges. What process should you follow and what tools should you have in your toolbox? In this presentation we will look into the process that MySQL Architects should follow in order to design efficient and scalable MySQL powered applications. We will look into what questions should be asked about Performance, High Availability, Security, and Scalability of applications. We will also give direction on what tools and practices the Architect should be aware of such as Replication, Clustering, Caching, and Buffering. We also will review the most common software packages which allow us to implement these architecture patterns in our applications.
