Meet the MySQL Experts Podcast: MySQL Replication Global Transaction Identifiers & HA Utilities
By Mat Keep on May 17, 2012
In the latest episode of our “Meet The MySQL Experts” podcast, Luis Soares, Engineering Manager of MySQL Replication discusses the new Global Transaction Identifiers (GTIDs) that are part of the latest MySQL 5.6 Development Release. We are also joined by Chuck Bell who discusses how the new MySQL HA utilities use GTIDs to create a self-healing replication topology.
In the podcast, we cover how GTIDs and the HA utilities are implemented, how they are configured and considerations for their use.
Of course, GTIDs are just one of the major new features of MySQL replication. For a complete overview, take a look at our DevZone article: MySQL 5.6 Replication - Enabling the Next Generation of Web & Cloud Services.
