Webinar November 10: Google Cloud Platform – MySQL at Scale with Reliable HA

Google Cloud Platform (GCP), with its CloudSQL offering, has become a leading platform for database-as-a-service workload deployments for many organizations. Scale and High Availability have surfaced as primary goals for many of these deployments. Unfortunately, the attainment of these objectives has been challenging.

Often, the answer has been to simply add more CloudSQL databases. Many, however, have found a better solution in Percona’s fully managed MySQL environment based in Google’s GCE. Percona’s fully managed MySQL offering provides benefits similar to CloudSQL, plus the ability to run MySQL with an unlimited number of tables and much more reliable database availability. This has empowered these organizations to reclaim control over their architecture decisions. With Percona’s fully managed MySQL, your database architecture choices are once again based on your needs and the needs of your workload, rather than the capabilities …

Webinar July 15: MySQL 8 Observability

Join Peter Zaitsev, Percona CEO, as he discusses MySQL 8 Observability.

Broken MySQL means broken application, so maintaining insights in MySQL operational performance is critical. Thankfully, MySQL 8 offers a lot in terms of observability to resolve problems quickly and get great insights into opportunities for optimization. In this talk, we will cover the most important observability improvements in MySQL 8 ranging from Performance Schema and Information Schema to enhanced error logging and optimizer trace. If you are a Developer or DBA passionate about Observability, or just want to be empowered to resolve MySQL problems quickly and efficiently, you should attend.

Please join Peter Zaitsev on Wednesday, July 15 at 1 pm EDT for his webinar “MySQL 8 Observability“.

Webinar July 9 – Modern Solutions for Modern Database Load: MySQL 8.0 and Percona

Join Sveta Smirnova, MySQL Engineer at Percona, as she discusses modern solutions for modern database loads.

MySQL is famous for working well in high performing environments. This is the reason why it is the most popular backend for web applications. But our view of what to call high-performance changes over the cycles. Every year we get faster data transfer speed; more devices, connected to the Internet; more users and, as a result, more data.

The challenges MySQL developers have to solve are getting harder over time.

In this session, Sveta will show how use-case scenarios are changing over 25 years of MySQL history. She will show what did MySQL engineers do to keep the product up to date and cover topics such as handling a large number of active connections and high volumes of data as well as how the latest MySQL versions handle increased load better.

After attending this …

Webinar July 30: Database Challenges – Open Source Vs. Open Core

Join Peter Zaitsev, CEO at Percona, as he discusses database challenges and the concepts of open source and open core. Over the years, open source companies have tried to bring products to market and maximize their revenue streams.  To date, the most popular open source business model remains “Open Core”.  But is open core software still open source?  Or is it a freemium model designed to separate you from your money?  Not all companies follow the same processes, ethics, and rules when building and launching open source products.  Let’s talk about how the open core bait and switch works for many companies in the open source space.

Join this webinar to learn more about:

– Open Source and Open core distinction
– Free enterprise-class community versions alternatives
– Use-cases that successfully moved away from vendor lock-in

Webinar June 25: How to Avoid Pitfalls in Schema Upgrade with Percona XtraDB Cluster

In this webinar, Sveta Smirnova, MySQL Engineer at Percona, will uncover nuances of Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) schema upgrades and point out details you need to give extra attention to.

Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) is a 100% synchronized cluster in regards to DML operations. It is ensured by the optimistic locking model and ability to rollback transaction which cannot be applied on all nodes. However, DDL operations are not transactional in MySQL. This adds complexity when you need to change the schema of the database. Changes made by DDL may affect the results of the queries. Therefore all modifications must replicate on all nodes prior to next data access. For operations that run momentarily, it can be easily achieved, but schema changes may take hours to apply. Therefore in addition to the safest synchronous blocking schema upgrade method: TOI, – PXC supports more relaxed, though not safe, method RSU. RSU: Rolling Schema Upgrade is …

Q & A on Webinar “How Safe is Asynchronous Master-Master Setup in MySQL?”

First I want to thank everyone who attended my May 21, 2020 webinar “How Safe is Asynchronous Master-Master Setup in MySQL?“. Recording and slides are available on the webinar page.

Here are answers to the questions from participants which I was not able to provide during the webinar.

Q: What do you generally think of hosting Relational Databases on VM’s as opposed to Bare metals?

A: With modern hardware and modern virtual machines this is absolutely possible. I know about many successful high loaded applications that run MySQL on VMs.

Just note that running a few VMs on a single physical machine may lead to resource loss rather than saving. For …

Webinar May 26: What’s New in Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) 8.0?

During this webinar, Tyler Duzan, Product Manager for MySQL and Cloud at Percona, will discuss Percona’s decision to delay Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0 to ship it with Galera 4 instead of Galera 3, and why that matters. In addition, he’ll talk about the work done to integrate MySQL 8.0 features with Galera as well as how Percona is treating Kubernetes as one of its primary target platforms with this release. This webinar will provide an overall view of the current state of best-in-breed MySQL clustering as well as the Percona roadmap for the future.

Please join Tyler Duzan of Percona, on Tuesday, May 26 at 11 am EDT for his webinar “What’s New in Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) 8.0?”.

Webinar May 21st: How Safe is Asynchronous Master-Master Setup in MySQL?

It is common knowledge that built-in asynchronous master-master (active-active) replication is not safe in MySQL. I remember times when the official MySQL User Reference Manual stated that such an installation is not recommended for production use. Some experts repeat this claim even now.

While this statement is generally true, I worked with thousands of shops that successfully avoided asynchronous replication limitations in active-active setups.

In this talk, I will show how they did it, demonstrate situations when asynchronous master-master replication is the best possible high availability option and beats such solutions as Galera or InnoDB Clusters. I will also cover common mistakes, leading to disasters.

Please join Sveta Smirnova of Percona, on Thursday, May 21 at 12 pm EDT for her webinar “How Safe is Asynchronous Master-Master Setup in MySQL?”.
