Replication is a simple-to-use, robust, and tried technique used
for achieving web-scale performance and high-availability. Basic
replication techniques include master-slave replication used to
perform backups and reporting without bringing the master off-line.
This presentation covers techniques to leverage MySQL Replication
for more advanced solutions: aggregating data from multiple data
centers, using hierarchical replication to scale out to thousands of
servers, mixing MySQL servers and other database servers, and using
esoteric slaves such as external full-text search engines,
web-cache layers, or other non-traditional or non-relational
components to handle special requirements.
