MySQL Replication failover: Maxscale vs MHA (Parts 1 to 3)

At present, the most commonly used products for automated failover are MySQL Master HA (aka MHA), Percona Replication Manager, but also newer options like Orchestrator and MaxScale + MariaDB Replication Manager have become available lately. In this three-parts blog series, we first focus on MySQL Master HA (MHA), in our second part we cover MaxScale + MariaDB Replication Manager and the final part compares the two with each other.

Polyglot Persistence for the MongoDB, PostgreSQL & MySQL DBA

The introduction of DevOps in organisations has changed the development process, and perhaps introduced some challenges. Developers, in addition to their own preferred programming languages, also have their own preference for backend storage.The former is often referred to as polyglot languages and the latter as polyglot persistence. This webinar covered the four major operational challenges for MySQL, MongoDB & PostgreSQL: Deployment, Management, Monitoring, Scaling and how to deal with them.
