There is a free webinar today, October 7, at 10am PDT (1pm EDT, 7pm CEST, 5pm UTC), about Designing Fail-Safe Systems with MySQL Proxy.
It's an interesting session to attend, for several reasons.
- Building a fail safe systems is the dream (and the nightmare) of every system architect. There are many solutions, not all of them are viable.
- This solution was implemented by a user, Clint Alexander, Internet Technologist for the Army Game Project.
The interesting part is that this session is not a theoretical disquisition, but a detailed technical and practical description of how to achieve fail safe in a heavy duty web project.
In addition to the presenter, there will be several MySQL engineers as panelists, so you will be able to ask questions and get answers from the top experts.
And what is the Proxy belt? That's a teaser for you. It's an interesting technological concept that has been probably been done already, but this is the first time that someone has actually tried it out in practice. The name is a cute description of what has been implemented. You will get the real info and a catchy picture in the presentation.
