The announcements at the O'Reilly MySQL and Oracle Collaborate conferences last week mark an exciting milestone in the development of MySQL replication. The purpose of this blog is to summarize those announcements and provide links to further reading, published directly by the engineers who have been working hard to take MySQL replication to the next level.

MySQL Cluster is already proven as a write-scalable, real-time
transactional database, combining 99.999% availability with the low TCO
of open source. With a distributed, multi-master architecture and no
single point of failure, MySQL Cluster scales horizontally on commodity
hardware to serve read and write intensive workloads.
Oracle Technology Network (OTN) Developer Day for MySQL will take place on May 3rd in Santa Clara, CA to help DBAs and Developers get started and get better with MySQL. In this free, one-day event, we will cover topics from database design, application development, to MySQL administration and management. You'll also learn the guidelines and best practices in performance tuning and scalability.
Attend this event and gain the knowledge to:
• Develop your new applications cost-effectively using MySQL
• Improve performance of your existing MySQL databases

The MySQL team at Oracle would like to thank everyone who joined us at the MySQL Community Reception last week at the Santa Clara Tech Mart. We couldn't have hoped for better participation - the room was packed; in fact people were overflowing into the outside patio!!!!
"Great conversations, positive spirit and delicious food" is how one person described the event! And let's not forget the vodka...
Great news was announced today at the Collaborate 11 conference today; the first development milestone release of MySQL 5.6.2 is now available to the MySQL Community! This is significant because 5.6.2 builds on the momentum generated by the performance, scalability, InnoDB and Replication improvements that rolled out in version 5.5 just last Dec. It also marks somewhat of a paradigm shift in how the MySQL Engineering team delivers new, defined sets of stable, development complete features (development "milestones") and cutting edge, currently under development, delivered early and often fea
MySQL Lunch-n-Learn is not a new performance schema table or a new BLOB data type for Chef Gordon Ramsey. It is where a MySQL engineer comes to your office bringing lunch to talk about the most popular open source database. I was asked to participate in one this morning at a major company headquartered in Dallas. The company wanted some information on updates to the MySQL server, a comparison between InnoDB and MyISAM, and some company specific questions.
