Please join Percona’s Chief Evangelist Colin Charles on February 7th, 2017 at 10:00 am EST / 7 am PST (UTC-8) as he presents "Best Practices for MySQL High Availability."

The MySQL world is full of tradeoffs, and choosing a high availability (HA) solution is no exception. This session looks at all of the alternatives in an unbiased manner. Preference is given, of course, to open source solutions!

How do you choose between MySQL replication, MHA, DRBD, Tungsten or Galera Cluster? Do you integrate Pacemaker and Heartbeat (like Percona Replication Manager)? Is NDB Cluster right for your workload? Do you always run with GTIDs enabled? Working in the cloud brings more fun into the mix – such as geographical redundancy. There are now even "modern" tools such as Orchestrator, Consul, MariaDB MaxScale and MySQL Router to assist in automation.

The webinar covers these topics and more. It’s a walkthrough of MySQL HA options, and when you should apply them.
