MySQL High Availability Reloaded

Cool new tools and tricks to guarantee high availability to your MySQL servers

A Database Month event:

Do you think that High Availability is all about MySQL Replication? Have you tried to alter your tables to NDB to drink at the holy grail of the shared-nothing architectures? High Availability is the #1 request for MySQL Servers, even more popular than scalability and performance. In this presentation we will talk about new tools as well as tried-and-true tools to provide HA, automatic failover and disaster recovery for MySQL - there is a solution for every need.

Ivan Zoratti, CTO of SkySQL (, has 25 years of experience in computer science and IT.
