The MariaDB/MySQL world is full of tradeoffs, and choosing a high availability (HA) solution is no exception. This session aims to look at all the alternatives in an unbiased way. Preference is of course only given to open source solutions. How do you choose between: asynchronous/semi-synchronous/synchronous replication, MHA (MySQL high availability tools), DRBD, Tungsten Replicator, or Galera Cluster? Do you integrate Pacemaker and Heartbeat like Percona Replication Manager? The cloud brings even more fun, especially if you are dealing with a hybrid cloud and must think about geographical redundancy. What about newer solutions like using Consul for MySQL HA? When you’ve decided on your solution, how do you provision and monitor these solutions? This and more will be covered in a walkthrough of MySQL HA options and when to apply them.
