MySQL Central: It's that time of the year

It's that time of the year again: yes, Oracle Open World is coming up and with that I'll be travelling to San Francisco. New for this year is that we are part of the main Open World event and therefore have our own MySQL Central. Here you will have the opportunity of meeting many of the engineers behind MySQL, discuss technical problems you have, and also learn some about how we look at the future of the MySQL ecosystem.

This year, me and Narayanan Venkateswaran will be presenting two sessions:

Elastic Scalability in MySQL Fabric with OpenStack (Thursday, Oct 2, 1:15 PM-2:00 PM in Moscone South, 252)

In this session you will see how Fabric can use the new provisioning support to fetch servers from an OpenStack instance. The presentation will cover how to use the provisioning support to fetch servers from OpenStack Nova, OpenStack Trove, and also from Amazon AWS. You will also learn about the provisioning interface and how you can use it to create your own hardware registry support.

MySQL Fabric: High Availability at Different Levels (Wednesday, Oct 1, 2:00 PM-2:45 PM in Moscone South - 250)

MySQL Fabric is a distributed system that requires coordination among different components to provide high availability: connectors, servers, and MySQL Fabric nodes must be orchestrated to create a solution resilient in the face of failures. Ensuring that each component alone is fault-tolerant does not guarantee that applications will continue working in the event of a failure. In this session, you will learn how all components in MySQL Fabric were designed to provide a high-availability solution and how they cooperate to achieve this goal. The presentation shows you how to create your own infrastructure to monitor MySQL servers and manage manual switchover or automatic failover operations together with MySQL Fabric.

As every year, it's going to be fun to meet all the people in the MySQL community, both new and old, so I'm looking forward to meeting you all there.
