This discussion will review the What’s, Why’s, How’s, and challenges faced in the MySQL NDB Cluster design and implementation process from the beginning to the end of a massive overhaul in 3 months.
Items to be discussed are :
A brief discussion of our old systems and why the upgrade was needed. Why did we choose MySQL Clustering over the other options? What kind of systems did we put in place for testing and proof of concept? What types of issues did we encounter with NDB due to our large data sets? What hardware runs our cluster? How did we structure our database intensive applications and infrastructure to maintain scalability and stability? What type of fail-over processes did we implement? What types of issues did we encounter after the database was up and running? What kind of monitoring do we have? What makes the install, upgrade, and maintenance of a cluster easier?
