Jeudis du Libre – Mons

Yesterday I was invited to speak at the “Jeudis du Libre” in Mons.

The location was very special as it was in one auditorium of Polytech, the oldest university in the city of Mons.

I presented in French two very hot topics in the MySQL ecosystem:

  • MySQL InnoDB Cluster
  • MySQL as Document Store with JSON datatype & X plugin

Those are very new technologies illustrating MySQL’s innovation. And of course there is much more to come with MySQL 8 !

Here are the slides if you are interested:

MySQL Day – Sessions review #9

Let’s finish these pre-FOSDEM MySQL Day Sessions reviews with Kenny Gryp‘s talk on MySQL Group Replication.

Kenny is working at Percona as MySQL Practice Manager.

Group Replication went Generally Available end of 2016, it introduces a (virtually) ‘synchronous’ active:active multi-master replication, in addition to asynchronous and semi-synchronous replication, the latter 2 being available in in MySQL for longtime.

As with any new feature, and especially with introducing active:active multi-master replication, it takes a while before companies are adopting the software in production database environment.
For example, even though MySQL 5.7 has been GA for more than a year, adoption is only starting to increase recently.

We can, and should, expect the same from Group …
