There’s still time to sign up for our webinar on Tuesday next week, February 23rd, on the scalable, open source database infrastructure behind CloudStats.me. Our friends from WooServers will be giving an overview of their project at cloudstats.me and discussing their past infrastructure challenges of scaling MySQL “write” performance with minimal cost, performance overhead and database management burden. The session will cover how they came to choose a MariaDB with MaxScale and HAProxy clustering solution, and how they leveraged ClusterControl. Sign up below:
