MySQL Replication: All the Severalnines Resources

Posted in:

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.

Do check them out and let us know your feedback!
