The MySQL ecosystem contains many projects and MySQL database engines. Shard-Query (a free open source project) can be used together with these different engines to build fault tolerant distributed database systems.
This presentation will describe why distributed databases are needed in today's compute environment and will describe the means to build three different types of distributed data stores for different purposes:
Row store – Percona XtraDB Cluster
Column store – Infobright Community Edition
Document store – Percona XtraDB Cluster and Flexviews
