MySQL replication has become an essential component within the scalable architectures and has become the hub for scalable LAMP environments. The major bottleneck for our data is generally not so much oriented around writing our data, but rather around reading it back. Therefore the easiest way to scale MySQL is to add read replicas.

In versions prior to MySQL 5.6, Replication was easy to set up, easy to break, but very difficult to repair. Replication was introduced 15 years ago in MySQL 3.23. While MySQL itself went through massive improvements over the years, the replication functionality remained pretty much the same - single threaded, easy to break, hard to retain consistency or change topologies, etc. This changed with MySQL 5.6.

With 5.6 and more recently 5.7, MySQL Replication has gone through a total transformation. Features like Global Transaction Identifiers make it easy to maintain consistency in dynamic changing replication topologies.

In this webinar, we will introduce the Severalnines Blueprint for MySQL Replication - this 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.
