MySQL Fabric - A Guide to Managing MySQL High Availability & Scaling Out

MySQL Fabric is built around an extensible and open source framework for managing farms of MySQL Servers. Currently two features have been implemented - High Availability (built on top of MySQL Replication) and scaling out using data sharding. These features can be used in isolation or in combination. MySQL Fabric aware connectors allow transactions and queries to be routed to the correct servers without the need for a proxy node, so operations run as quickly as ever. In this white paper, you will learn what MySQL Fabric is, what it can achieve and how it is used - by DBAs, Dev-Ops and developers. You'll also be exposed to what is happening under the covers.
