Managing Large Databases on MySQL Cluster

Take the MySQL Cluster course to learn how to manage your database more efficiently. For example learn how to manage large databases.

If your clustered database becomes too large to be contained in the memory of a single node group, you can add additional nodes (and therefore node groups). MySQL Cluster distributes data between node groups, so that each node group contains a fraction of the overall database. This means that if you have four node groups in your cluster, each node group holds approximately one quarter of the cluster's data and responds to roughly one quarter of the cluster's row requests. As your data or throughput requirements grow, you can add more node groups to scale the database without making any changes to your existing applications.

You can take the 4-day instructor-led MySQL Cluster course as a:

MySQL Backup for Recovery, Auditing, Data Transfer

Backing up your MySQL databases is important for:

  • Complete system recovery: If a system fails, you need a backup of the system so you can restore it. Your backup and recovery strategy depends on how current and how complete the recovered data needs to be.
  • Auditing capabilities: For some systems and associated processes, you need to audit or analyze the data on a system other than your primary production environment.
  • Typical DBA tasks: Use backups when you need to perform typical DBA tasks such as transferring data from one system to another, creating a development server based on a specific state of a production server or recovering certain portions of the system to state prior to a user error.

Take the MySQL for Database Administrators course to learn more about types of backup, backup tools, and MySQL Enterprise Backup. You can take this 5-day, instructor-led course in the following formats:

  • Training-on-Demand: Start training within 24 hours of registering, following lecture material at your own pace through streaming video and booking time on a lab environment to suit your schedule.
  • Live-Virtual Event: Attend a live event from your own desk, no travel required. Choose from a selection of events already on the schedule to suit different timezones.
