MySQL University: MySQL Galera Multi-Master Replication
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This Thursday (February 11th, 14:00 UTC), Seppo Jaakola & Alex Yurchenko will talk about MySQL Galera Multi-Master Replication. Galera provides synchronous multi-master replication and uses a certification-based replication method for replicating transaction write sets in a DBMS cluster. The replication method requires close co-operation with database transaction processing and DMBS must support a specific replication API to be compatible with Galera. Codership has integrated Galera replication in the InnoDB storage engine, and the resulting MySQL/Galera cluster product has been published as a production-ready GA release in December

Copyrights and wrongs

One of the issues I have with the Free Software approach is that advocates have habit of throwing the baby out with the bathwater when discussing issues that they see as in any way negative to free software.

I was reminded of this while reading Bradley M. Kuhn’s criticism of Mark Shuttleworth’s reported views on copyright assignment.

The two entities have very different

Forward – into the future
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Looking back at the short-term, it wasn’t long since MySQL was bought by Sun, and yesterday the deal with Oracle was finalized.

I want to take this time to thank everyone involved in MySQL and the surrounding community for their hard work, and express my wishes that you look forward to the future and what it might hold, I am sure it will be great.

I think that if done correctly, we as a community can benefit from these changes in the long run, so let’s look forward rather than backward.
