As you saw on the keynote, we are introducing an integrated
framework for managing farms of MySQL servers with support
for both high-availability and sharding. It should be noted that
this is a very early alpha and that it at this point is not ready
for production use.
MySQL Fabric is an integrated system for managing a collection of MySQL servers and is the framework on which high-availability and sharding is built. MySQL Fabric is open-source and is intended to be extensible, easy to use, and support procedure execution even in the presence of failure, an execution model we call resilient execution.
