We are sure you’ve probably already heard that MySQL 5.7 is going to reach End of Life (EOL) by October 2023. We are here to tell you that the migration from MySQL 5.7 need not be scary — MySQL 8.0 has been Generally Available for five years, and the Galera Cluster product for it, has been hardened for over three years, so it is truly time to get ready to migrate.
In our first session of the series, we are going to cover:
* the new features of Galera Cluster with MySQL 8 that you might benefit from, including what is available in Galera Cluster Enterprise Edition (EE)
* how to plan a migration from MySQL 5.7 or older to 8.0
* things to test for, before migrating
* common pitfalls of said migration
* how to ensure your Galera Cluster keeps humming along with no downtime
We also offer migration support to help you before and during your migration, after-which our regular support plan will cover your everyday needs.
