+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Failure is an unavoidable part of IT life, but it does not always have to imply MySQL service downtime. In the years I have been working at Percona, I have been involved in many customer emergency cases, and I have seen a good number of problems that could have been avoided or alleviated if relatively simple proactive measures were taken.

On July 17th 2013, at 10 a.m. PDT, I will be delivering a webinar focused on presenting the Top 5 such measures, with the objective of helping you assess your current situation, and implement any needed changes to avoid production downtime in the future. The webinar is titled:

How people are using MySQL… from 1 user to 100 million (upcoming conference talk)

MySQL can be deployed in several ways, and that means you can choose a tailor-made path that best meets your needs. With simple services or development systems, many people are using a single server with some backups configured, and then simply take the downtime when a restore is needed.

As the application evolves, additional requirements will appear like hot backups, online schema changes,

Choosing a MySQL HA Solution – MySQL Webinar: June 5
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Selecting the most appropriate solution for a MySQL HA infrastructure is as much a business and philosophical decision as it is a technical one, but often the choice is made without adequately considering all three perspectives.  When too much attention is paid to one of these aspects at the cost of the others, the resulting system may be over-engineered, poorly-performing, and/or various other flavors of suboptimal.

On Wednesday, June 5, at 10 a.m. PDT (1700 UTC), I will be presenting a webinar entitled, Choosing a MySQL HA Solution, in

Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013: It feels like 2007 again
+3 Vote Up -1Vote Down

I actually don’t remember exactly whether it was in 2006, 2007 or 2008 — but around that time the MySQL community had one of the greatest MySQL conferences put on by O’Reilly and MySQL. It was a good, stable, predictable time.

Shortly thereafter, the MySQL world saw acquisitions, forks, times of uncertainly, more acquisitions, more forks, rumors (“Oracle is going to kill MySQL and the whole Internet”) and just a lot of drama and politics.

And now, after all this time some 6 or 7 years later, it feels like a MySQL Renaissance. All of the major MySQL players are coming to the

Catch the webinar: “Learn How MySQL 5.6 Makes Query Optimization Easier” for more tips on the 5.6 optimizer

While preparing the webinar I will deliver this Friday, I ran into a quite interesting (although not very impacting) optimizer issue: a “SELECT *” taking half the time to execute than the same “SELECT one_indexed_column” query in MySQL 5.6.10.
