To listen to a recording of this webinar:

Between versions 6 and 7, the database layer for Drupal has changed dramatically. In this webinar, we'll discuss the differences between the versions and how you can utilize the enhancements for your application. In addition, we'll cover some advanced MySQL database topics:

- Read/write splitting
- Using external databases
- HA for your MySQL instance

Finally, we'll profile the default database traffic for some common flows and show how you can tweak your MySQL and Drupal configuration to achieve greater performance. At the end of the webinar, you will have a better understanding how to leverage the latest database layer capabilities of Drupal and how to configure and tune your MySQL instances for visitor growth and higher performance.
