Watch Percona CEO Peter Zaitsev as he presents High Availability and Disaster Recovery in Amazon RDS.

In this hour-long session, Peter describes the differences between high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) and then moves through scenarios detailing how each is handled manually and in Amazon RDS.

He’ll review the pros and cons of managing HA and DR in the traditional database environment as well in the cloud. Having full control of these areas is daunting, and Amazon RDS makes meeting these needs easier and more efficient.

Regardless of which path you choose, it is necessary that you monitor your environment, so Peter wraps up with a discussion of metrics you should regularly review to keep your environment working correctly and performing optimally.
