Lessons from Database Failures
Join Percona's Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he presents "Lessons from Database Failures."
MySQL failures at scale can teach us a great deal. They can lead to a discussion on such topics as high availability (HA), geographical redundancy and automatic failover. In this webinar, Colin will present case study material (how automatic failover caused Github to go offline, why Facebook uses assisted failover rather than fully automated failover, among other scenarios) to look at how the MySQL world is making things better. One way, for example, is using semi-synchronous replication to run fully scalable services.
The webinar will begin with an obvious example of how a business died due to incorrect MySQL backup procedures. The agenda includes backups (and verification), replication (and failover) and security (and encryption).
The webinar will cover a mix of big “fail whale” problems from the field, and how you should avoid them by properly architecting solutions.
