I will be presenting group replication on March 14, 2015 in the FOSSASIA conference. It is a 25 minute session and you can find the schedule here. Here is an abstract of the talk:
MySQL Replication provides a solution for High Availability and Read Scale-Out. Replication ensures that data written on one MySQL server is made available on other MySQL servers at runtime in a fast, consistent and fault tolerant manner with minimal impact to the overall performance of the server. Traditionally, MySQL Replication supports a single master and many slaves, and it is either asynchronous or semi-synchronous. Recently, a preview of a new replication plugin for MySQL was released and this is named MySQL Group Replication. This plugin provides multi-master update everywhere capabilities, making it possible to update data, concurrently, on any server in a group. While not a fully synchronous replication solution such as MySQL Cluster, it does provide additional synchronization related to message exchanged between servers in a group. This talk explains how MySQL Group Replication facilitates improves High Availability and simplifies replication and application management - it will also include a demo. Takeaways: - What's in the MySQL Group Replication MySQL 5.7 labs release. - Understanding the architecture of MySQL Group Replication.See you there!
