The Boston MySQL Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

When: Mon December 10, 2012 7:00 pm

Organization: The Boston MySQL Meetup Group



This meeting's topic is "Elastic Database Scalability: Making your MySQL data tier flexible and adaptable to system demand with ParElastic" by Amrith Kumar, CTO of ParElastic.



Conventionally relational databases are inflexible and application developers are required to configure and provision database capacity to meet peak or near demand. This is neither cost effective, nor even feasible for high growth companies.

Traditional solutions to this problem are hard-to-use, non-standard, and fragile. In this talk, we present an alternative approach to solve this problem based on ParElastic. ParElastic is software that makes
groups of databases work together as a single virtual database. The application perceives a single instance of MySQL and in most cases the unmodified application can be made to work with ParElastic.

In the presentation, we describe the product, some of the inner workings and will include a brief demonstration.
