Galera is slowly but surely establishing itself as a credible replacement for traditional MySQL master-slave architectures.
The benefits are clear - a true multi-master InnoDB setup with built-in fail-over, potentially across data centers.
But how do you migrate? Does the schema or application change? What are the limitations? Can migration be done online, without service interruption? What are the potential risks, and how to address those?
In this webinar, Codership CEO Seppo Jaakola and Severalnines CTO Johan Andersson will walk you through what you need to know in order to migrate from standalone or a master-slave MySQL/MariaDB setup to Galera Cluster.
We will also see a live demo.
