Percona hosted another excellent Percona Live conference this past December 3-4 in London.  It was my pleasure to deliver 3 talks including the first keynote following Peter Zaitsev.  Percona does a great job of organizing these conferences--this year's London conference was well attended and in an excellent location in Kensington.  My thanks to the entire Percona team for putting this together.

Here are the slides for my talks in case you would like to see them.

Solving replication problems with Tungsten replicator
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On Monday afternoon, Neal Armitage and I will be speaking at Percona Live in London. It will be a three hours tutorial about Tungsten replicator.

The contents of this tutorial are mostly new. We have released recently a new and easier way of installing different topologies, in the shape of cookbook scripts, which are distributed with the replicator tarball.

Using this cookbook, any user can simply install multiple topologies, from the simple master/slave to all-masters, fan-in, and star.

There are recipes for showing the replication cluster, …

Slides for Evaluating MySQL HA Alternatives
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Attached are the slides for my MySQL Connect talk Evaluating MySQL High-availability alternatives, which I will present today at 14:30 at the MySQL Connect conference.

A bit unusually I'm posting the material ahead of the talk. The point of the talk is about evaluating each alternative from your own perspective. With that in mind, if you're at the talk with your own laptop, feel free to browse the slides at your own pace from here.

Data Fabrics and Other Tales: Percona Live and MySQL Connect
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The fall conference season is starting.  I will be doing a number of talks including a keynote on "future proofing" MySQL through the use of data fabrics.  Data fabrics allow you to build durable, long-lasting systems that take advantage of MySQL's strengths today but also evolve to solve future problems using fast-changing cloud and big data technologies.  The talk brings together ideas that Ed Archibald (our CTO) and I have been working on for over two decades.  I'm looking forward to rolling them out …

Database Failure Is Not the Biggest Availability Problem
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There have been a number of excellent articles about the pros and cons of automatic database failover triggered by Baron's post on the GitHub database outage.  In the spirit of Peter Zaitsev's article "The Math of Automated Failover," it seems like a good time to point out that database failure is usually not the biggest source of downtime …

Automated Database Failover Is Weird but not Evil
+9 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Github had a recent outage due to malfunctioning automatic MySQL failover.  Having worked on this problem for several years I felt sympathy but not much need to comment.  Then Baron Schwartz wrote a short post entitled "Is automated failover the root of all evil?"  OK, that seems worth a comment:  it's not.  Great title, though.

Selecting automated database failover involves a trade-off between keeping your …

Life in the Amazon Jungle

In late 2011 I attended a lecture by John Wilkes on Google compute clusters, which link thousands of commodity computers into huge task processing systems.  At this scale hardware faults are common.  Google puts a lot of effort into making failures harmless by managing hardware efficiently and using fault-tolerant application programming models.  This is not just good for application up-time.  It also allows Google to operate on cheaper hardware with higher failure rates, hence offers a competitive advantage in data center operation.

It's becoming apparent …
