Choosing the right MySQL High Availability Solution – webinar replay

Earlier this week, I presented a webinar on MySQL High Availability options for MySQL – what they are and how to choose the most appropriate one for your application.

The replay of this webinar can now be viewed here or if you just want to look at the charts then scroll down. At the end of this post, I include a summary of the Q&A from the webinar.

How important is your data? Can you afford to lose it? What about just some of it? What would be the impact if you couldn’t access it for a minute, an hour, a day or a week?

Different applications can have very different requirements for High Availability. Some need 100% …

MMUG11: Talk about binlog servers at Madrid MySQL Users Group meeting on 29th January 2015

Madrid MySQL Users Group will have its next meeting on Thursday, the 29th of January. I will be giving a presentation on the MySQL binlog server and how it can be used to help scale reads and be used for other purposes.  If you have (more than) a few slaves this talk might be interesting … Continue reading MMUG11: Talk about binlog servers at Madrid MySQL Users Group meeting on 29th January 2015

Sharding & HA – MySQL Fabric Webinar

On Thursday (19th June), Mats Kindahl and I will be presenting a free webinar on why and how you should be using MySQL Fabric to add Sharding (scaling out reads & writes) and High Availability to MySQL. This product has only recently gone GA and so this is a good chance to discover it’s for you and to get your questions answered by the people who wrote the software! All you need to do is register for the MySQL Fabric webinar here.

Abstract

MySQL Fabric is built around an extensible and open source framework for managing farms of MySQL Servers. Currently two features have been implemented – High Availability (built on top of MySQL Replication) and scaling out using …

MySQL Fabric – adding Scaling to MySQL

MySQL Fabric is a new framework that adds High Availability (HA) and/or scaling-out for MySQL. This is the second in a series of posts on the new MySQL Fabric framework; the first article (MySQL Fabric – adding High Availability to MySQL) explained how MySQL Fabric can deliver HA and then stepped through all of the steps to configure and use it.

This post focuses on using MySQL Fabric to scale out both reads and writes across multiple MySQL Servers. It starts with an introduction to scaling out (by partitioning/sharding data) and how MySQL Fabric achieves it before going on to work through a full example of configuring sharding across a farm of MySQL Servers together with the code that the application developer needs to …

MySQL Connect 8 Days Away - Replication Sessions

Following on from my post about MySQL Cluster sessions at the forthcoming Connect conference, its now the turn of MySQL Replication - another technology at the heart of scaling and high availability for MySQL.

Unless you've only just returned from a 6-month alien abduction, you will know that MySQL 5.6 includes the largest set of replication enhancements ever packaged into a single new release:

- Global Transaction IDs + HA utilities for self-healing cluster..(yes both automatic failover and manual switchover available!)

- Crash-safe slaves and binlog

- Binlog Group Commit and Multi-Threaded Slaves for high performance

- …

Great turn out at SCALE !
MySQL Day on Friday was a great success. MySQL sessions packed all day.

So far Saturday has had a great turn out at the booth with numerous questions about MySQL.

Tux even gave us a visit.

SCALE 10x – there’s lots of MySQL there!

I’m just about to get on a plane to head to my inaugural SCALE event. It’s their tenth year running!

In a world filled with NoSQL related media, its kind of nice to see that on Friday January 20 2012, we have a MySQL room right next to the PostgreSQL room (schedule). It is awesome to see that the track will have participation from Oracle, Monty Program Ab, and SkySQL Ab.

On Saturday for the main tracks, I’ve got a talk about the growing MySQL diaspora (just got larger this year in case you haven’t paid attention to the packaged up Galera product!). This one is a constant work in progress and I’m hoping to complete research closer towards March ’12.

Monty Program and SkySQL are also sharing a booth in the …

Scaling Web Databases: Auto-Sharding with MySQL Cluster

The realities of today’s successful web services are creating new demands that many legacy databases were just not designed to handle:

- The need to scale writes, as well as reads, both within and across geographically dispersed data centers;

- The need to scale operational agility to keep pace with database load and application requirements. This means being able to add capacity and performance to the database, and to evolve the schema – all without downtime;

- The need to scale queries by having flexibility in the APIs used to access the database;

- The need to scale the database while maintaining continuous availability for both failures as well as scheduled maintenance events.

Each of the requirements above warrant their own dedicated blog, which I’ll find time to write over the next few weeks.

But to get started, I wanted to discuss how the MySQL Cluster database addresses the first …

Unlocking New Value from Web Session Management

Join us for a live webinar and download a new whitepaper where we discuss how to realize new value from data collected during web session management.

Session management has long been a key component of any web infrastructure – enhancing the user browsing experience through improved reliability, reduced latency and tighter security.

Increasingly organizations are looking to unlock more value from session management to further improve user loyalty (i.e. making the web service more “sticky”) and improve monetization of web services.  There are two distinct developments that offer the promise of unlocking more value from session data:
1.    Provide highly personalized browsing experiences by …
