Webinar Replay: Disaster Recovery Planning for MySQL & MariaDB

Jean-Jérôme Schmidt


Everyone should have a disaster recovery plan for MySQL & MariaDB!

Watch the replay of our webinar with Vinay Joosery, CEO at Severalnines, on Disaster Recovery Planning for MySQL & MariaDB with ClusterControl

Organizations need an appropriate disaster recovery plan in order to mitigate the impact of downtime. But how much should a business invest? Designing a highly available system comes at a cost, and not all businesses and certainly not all applications need five 9s availability; though several 9s are always good to have 😉

In this webinar, Vinay explains key disaster recovery concepts and walks us through the relevant options from the MySQL & MariaDB ecosystem in order to meet different tiers of disaster recovery requirements; and demonstrates how ClusterControl can help users fully automate an appropriate disaster recovery plan.
