Galera Cluster presentations at Percona Live on Tuesday 14th (Time Warner Cable, Yahoo, Galera on OpenStack, Galera on Kubernetes)

MySQL and Openstack deep dive, 14 April 11:30AM – 12:20PM @ Room 204

Peter Boros, Principal Architect, Percona

Most folks know that there are a number of different flavors of MySQL — standard MySQL, MariaDb, Percona XtraDb, MySQL Galera, Percona XtraDb Cluster, etc. In this talk, we hope to dispel some of these myths and give some clear information on what are the strengths and weaknesses of each of these flavors, what pitfalls to avoid when migrating between them, and what architectural information to take into account when planning your OpenStack MySQL database deployments. We will discuss replication topologies and techniques, and explain how the Galera Cluster variants differ from standard MySQL replication.


15 tips to boost your Galera Cluster,  14 April 1:20PM – 2:10PM @ Ballroom B

Frederic Descamps, Senior Architect, Percona

During this presentation, I will show how to implement several stuff that will improve your day-to-day workload. The points will cover topics like Point in Time Recovery, WAN replication with group segments, Avoiding SST when adding new Percona XtraDB Cluster node, … the tips will be briefly explained to the audience and then show how to implement them. The tips covered must be known by every administrator of a Galera Cluster.


Deploying a OpenStack Cloud at Scale at Time Warner Cable, 14 April 1:20PM – 2:10PM @ Room 203

Matthew Fisher, Principle Software Engineer, Time Warner Cable

Time Warner Cable has been designing, building, and operating an OpenStack cloud. Over the past 18 months, we’ve grown the team and tripled our original deployment as we’ve offered more capacity and services to internal customers. During this time we made some good decisions, but also some mistakes. We’d like to share the journey, good and bad, and show you what parts of the process you should focus on for your stand-up. Our talk will cover technologies and best practices used when deploying an OpenStack cluster to production, ranging from infrastructure tools like (Ansible, Puppet, git, Jenkins, Gerrit) to tools needed to run and monitor a production system (MySQL/Galera, rabbitmq, Icinga, Monasca)


Yahoo: Experiences with Percona Cluster, 14 April 1:20PM – 2:10PM @ Ballroom H

Tray Raymond, Yashada Jadhav, Yahoo

Yahoo runs one of its mission critical OLTP and OLAP system on Percona MySQL Cluster. In this presentation, we’ll run through the architecture, setup, challenges and tweaks that we’ve performed to enable running mission critical applications on Percona Cluster.


Running a Galera Cluster on Kubernetes , 14 April 2:20PM – 3:10PM @ Ballroom B

Patrick Calbraith, Senior Systems Engineer, Hewlett Packard

Kubernetes is a popular and rapidly-developing open source project from Google that provides (Docker) container cluster-management. Kubernetes can provide HA scheduling for any type of application, and in the case of this talk, a Galera cluster. This talk will explain to the user what exactly Kubernetes is, how it works, how the user can run Kubernetes, and importantly, how one can run a Galera cluster on Kubernetes.
