In this webinar replay, we guide you through 9 key tips to consider before taking Galera Cluster for MySQL / MariaDB into production.

This is part 2 of our webinar trilogy on MySQL Query Tuning, covering SQL tuning, indexing, the MySQL optimizer and how to leverage EXPLAIN to gain insight into execution plans.

To operate MongoDB efficiently, you need to have insight into database performance. And with that in mind, we’ll dive into monitoring in this second webinar in the ‘Become a MongoDB DBA’ series. MongoDB offers many metrics through various status overviews and commands, but which ones really matter to you? How do you trend and alert on them? What is the meaning behind the metrics?

You’re running MySQL as backend database, how do you tune it to make best use of the hardware? How do you optimize the Operating System? How do you best configure MySQL for a specific database workload?

Do these questions sound familiar to you? Maybe you’re having to deal with that type of situation yourself?

On Tuesday, May 24th, we were discussing and demonstrating the latest version of ClusterControl, the one-stop console for your entire database infrastructure. We introduced some cool new features for MySQL and MongoDB users in particular and walked through the work we’d recently done for improved security.

So, maybe you’ve been working with MySQL for a while and are now being asked to also properly maintain one or more MongoDB instances. It is not uncommon that MySQL DBAs, developers, network/system administrators or DevOps folks with general backgrounds, find themselves in this situation at some point in time. In fact, with more organisations operating polyglot environments, it’s starting to become commonplace.

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.

MySQL 5.7 has been around for a while now, and if you haven’t done so yet, it’s probably about time to start thinking about upgrading your database to the latest version. There are a few things you need to keep in mind when planning a MySQL upgrade, such as important changes between versions 5.6 and 5.7 as well as detailed testing that needs to precede any such upgrade process for instance. Amongst other things, we’ll look at how to best research, prepare and perform such tests before the time comes to finally start the upgrade process. is a fast growing cloud-based server and website monitoring service. The rapid growth of the CloudStats user base and the number of services being monitored created a significant load on its MySQL infrastructure. The system ingests large amounts of incoming metrics/event data collected by thousands of agents. The backend systems also perform analytics on large portions of that data, and alerts are triggered as soon as certain conditions are met.
