Marco Nicosia (Pivotal Software) delivers the talk, "Highway Safety: Street Signs to Watch For When Running Galera Clusters", on DAY 2 of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference 2018, 4/25, at Santa Clara, CA.

Planning to run MySQL, but want HA or horizontal scaling? Galera seems like the perfect fit! It can be, so long as your developers are aware of several important hazards. Galera's documentation hints at these, but understanding their implications can be tricky.

I'll show a series of demos which will show you the street signs you'll encounter on the road to Galera. This guide will help you choose the best path for your users. I'll expand on what I've presented before to provide better Galera background and a new demo of how multiple readers can read different data for the same queries over extended periods of time.

Cloud Foundry, an OSS PaaS project, gives developers self-service access to DBs. CF-MySQL provides CF Operators a reliable, automated, Galera cluster. We'll share what we've learned: what worked, and what we'd do differently next time.
