As many of you will know, MySQL Replication has become an instrumental part of scale-out architectures in LAMP environments. MySQL offers plenty of solutions when there is a need to scale out, the most common being to add read replicas. The major bottleneck for our data is generally not so much oriented around writing our data but more around reading it back. Therefore the easiest way to scale MySQL is to add replicas for reading.
We’ve produced a number of resources during the course of this year aimed at helping users to get started with MySQL Replication and/or get more out of their existing setups.
We’ve summarised these resources here in a handy overview, so that you can pick and chose the ones that might be the most relevant to you.

Introducing the Severalnines MySQL© Replication Blueprint
The Severalnines Blueprint for MySQL Replication includes all aspects of a MySQL Replication topology with the ins and outs of deployment, setting up replication, monitoring, upgrades, performing backups and managing high availability using proxies as ProxySQL, MaxScale and HAProxy. This webinar provides an in-depth walk-through of this blueprint and explains how to make best use of it.
Managing MySQL Replication for High Availability
This webinar covers deployment and management of MySQL replication topologies using ClusterControl. We show you how to schedule backups, promote slaves and what the most important metrics are worth keeping a close eye on. We also demonstrate how you can deal with schema and topology changes and how to solve the most common replication issues.
