MySQL University: MySQL Galera Multi-Master Replication

Stefan Hinz
MySQL Documentation Manager

This Thursday (February 11th,
14:00 UTC), Seppo Jaakola & Alex Yurchenko will talk about MySQL Galera Multi-Master Replication. Galera provides synchronous multi-master replication and uses a
certification-based replication method for replicating transaction write sets in a DBMS cluster. The replication method requires close co-operation with database transaction processing and DMBS must support a specific replication API to be compatible with Galera. Codership has integrated Galera replication in the InnoDB storage engine, and the resulting MySQL/Galera cluster product has been published as a production-ready GA release in December 2009. The MySQL/Galera release
0.7 is available on the Codership and Launchpad sites.

University sessions, point your browser to
this page
. You need a browser with a working Flash plugin. You may
register for a Dimdim account, but you don't have to. (
is the
conferencing system we're using for MySQL University sessions. It
provides integrated voice streaming, chat, whiteboard, session
recording, and more.)
MySQL University sessions are recorded, that is, slides and voice can
be viewed as a Flash movie (.flv). You can find those recordings on the
MySQL University session pages which are listed on the MySQL
University home page

University is a free educational online program for
engineers/developers. MySQL University sessions are open to anyone, not
just Sun employees. Sessions are recorded (slides and audio), so if you
can't attend the live session you can look at the recording anytime
after the session.

Here's the
tentative list of upcoming sessions:

  • February 18:
    Performance Schema: Instrumenting Code (Marc Alff)
  • February 25:
    Securich - Security Plugin for MySQL (Darren Cassar)
  • March 4: MySQL
    Column Databases (Robin Schumacher)
  • March 11:
    Improving MySQL Full-Text Search (Kristofer Pettersson)
By the way, did I
mention that we need more speakers to fill up the 2010 schedule? If
