For improving the scalability of your applications you have a lot of potential solutions. Using each individual solution effectively can be complicated enough. But real benefits are gained when you combine different technologies together in different combinations.
This tutorial will demonstrate all of the different basic scale up and scale out solutions and their various benefits and pitfalls. Once the basics of the different combinations have been demonstrated and understood, the tutorial will move on to more complex combinations of solutions that enable you to develop a solution that suits your needs.
The tutorial will cover architectures and topologies for:
The tutorial will also cover using combinations of the above tools to achieve different types and levels of scalability and availability. For example, using MySQL Proxy with replication to provide read scalability, or using replication and Federated tables to support write scalability.
Throughout, full examples and working environments will be demonstrated. These will provide not only samples of the environments and configurations, but also the benefits and the potential problems and how additional solutions can help alleviate or eliminate the problems introduced.
Martin MC Brown is a Technical Writer for the MySQL team within Sun Microsystems, but spends a lot of his time working with and advising different teams within MySQL on the architecture, implementation and end-user experience of MySQL. He draws on a wide experience of database and application development and large scale deployment of technology in grids and distributed computing environments involving hundreds or thousands of computers working in harmony. Today he spends most of his time developing large scale solutions, techniques for better performance monitoring or writing about it to educate other people.
