Migrating to XtraDB Cluster

Mar 22, 2013

Percona Live University - Toronto

Jay Janssen, Managing Principal Architect

A lot of people are interested in XtraDB Cluster as a replacement for conventional MySQL master/slave architectures to eliminate replication lag and finally achieve a highly-available masterless cluster of MySQL servers. But what would migration look like?

This talk will go over a high-level overview of XtraDB cluster, as well as operational concerns, possible migration paths, key configuration tuning variables, and generally everything you'll need to migrate from an existing Master/Slave environment into XtraDB cluster. This talk will primarily be an operational discussion, it will not cover in-depth details on how the cluster works.
