Most of high scale web applications use memcached + MySQL or NoSQL. It is said that NoSQL performs better than MySQL for simple access patterns such as primary key lookups. But things are changing. DeNA recently developed HandlerSocket plugin, a MySQL plugin speaking NoSQL protocols. We got 750,000+ qps in our benchmarks and runs pretty well on our production. We'd like to share our experiences. Read more.

MySQL Cluster (NDB) is one of the most interesting storage engines. Oracle promotes NDB as the perfect solution for high volume transactions in high availability. On the other hand, many famous users are reluctant in migrating applications to NDB. This session will help in understanding in practical terms when it makes sense to use NDB and when it is better to stay with or use InnoDB. Read more.

Most MySQL deployments use some form of replication. Whether the reason is availability, scalability, backup, disaster recovery or archiving, understanding the performance characterization and trade-offs is critical to design and planning. If you have always wondered when and why to choose async/semi-sync/sync MySQL replication, DRBD or other interoperable technologies, this session is for you. Read more.
