DBAs everywhere are being asked to support MySQL as a less costly alternative in Oracle's portfolio. Rest assured, (almost) everything you know about Oracle can be translated and applied to supporting MySQL with some new vocabulary and some smart starting points.
This talk will touch on 5 things that are helpful to get right from the beginning. Through anecdotes i'll spotlight some common pitfalls, share paths to a fix If you've inherited a running system and offer a vocabulary lesson so those who speak Oracle can start understanding MySQL. I'll be touching on user management and security, backups and replicas, monitoring, storage engine choices, and probably monitoring again (because it is that important).
