Jacob Nikom gives the talk we've been waiting for, explaining GTIDs!

This meetup's topic will be "Usage of GTID-based Replication for MySQL High Availability".

The 5.6 release of MySQL brought important improvements in many areas of the server functionality. For replication especially significant was an introduction of Global Transaction Identifiers (GTID) that allow to track and compare replication progress among the slaves - and if those slaves are also acting as masters in a multi-tier replication topology.

This presentation will discuss replication as MySQL server High Availability solution in general, compare new GTID-based and old coordinate-based implementations, and demonstrate the usage of GTID replication for the master failover in the Amazon cloud
