This talk will discuss what HA is and is not, what kinds of MySQL HA solutions are currently available, and what sorts of factors should be considered when determining a) if you even need an HA solution at all, and b) if you do, which one you should be focusing on. Each approach to HA has its own strengths and weaknesses, and it's often just as easy to over-engineer a solution to your HA needs as it is to under-engineer it; my aim for this session is to help guide you in the right direction as to what questions you should be asking.
