High availability is one of the most important characteristics of a mission-critical database environment, doesn’t matter where it runs. Running MySQL in the public cloud is really easy these days. Pick a cloud provider, MySQL service, and start using it. Each service is different, though. AWS RDS, AWS Aurora, Google Cloud SQL, Azure Database for MySQL, Oracle MySQL Database Service - each service provides different high availability options and guarantees. Navigating through the options may be difficult and wrong choices may have a real business impact! Do you know how many “nines” you can’t count on?

In this session, Michal will discuss the true characteristics of MySQL cloud services' high availability options, their cost impact, and DIY on IaaS alternatives - so the next time you’re choosing how to run your MySQL in the cloud, you’ll be able to make a well-informed decision. Additionally, you’ll learn about some of the typical misconceptions concerning the most popular MySQL cloud services.

If you’re given the number of “nines” to guarantee but a myriad of choices and true cost still mystifies you, or (what’s worse!) you think that you don’t need to care because the cloud is “always-on” - this talk is for you.
