There is no question that MySQL is by far the most commonly used database in OpenStack deployments. Most people know that there are a number of MySQL variants -- standard MySQL by Oracle, MariaDB, Percona Server, MySQL Galera, Percona XtraDB Cluster, etc. However, there are many misconceptions and myths around the pros and cons of these MySQL flavors.
This webinar will dispel some of these myths and give a clearer picture of the strengths and weaknesses of each of these flavors, what pitfalls to avoid when migrating between them, and what architectural information to take into account when planning your OpenStack MySQL database deployments. We will discuss replication topologies and techniques, and explain how the Galera Cluster variants differ from standard MySQL replication.
Finally, in the latter part of the session, we will take a deep dive into MySQL database performance analysis. We will analyze the results of a Rally run showing a typical Nova workload. In addition, we will demonstrate using pt-query-digest to determine if a synchronously-replication database cluster like Percona XtraDB Cluster is a good fit for certain OpenStack projects.
Jay Pipes, Principal Technical Architect, Mirantis, will be joining Percona's Peter Boros for this presentation.
