MySQL was the first database system developed particularly with web applications use in mind. But it made a long way since 1995. How is it keeping up with today's internet demands?
How to scale the most popular database for the web these days? What are the best practices to scale MySQL and keep it fast, without headaches? Are there any good examples of large scale use cases?
In this talk I will try to answer to those questions. I will try to focus on new features in recent MySQL versions, but also to present an open source, fast growing clustering solution making MySQL for the cloud really easy and flexible.
