High Performance MySQL

Quick post.

Two former/current Google Yahoo! Engineers, Derek J. Balling & Jeremy D. Zawodny respectively, released some great tips for performance enhancing your MySQL database. This was actually published back in 2004 but I just got around to reading it over the weekend. It breaks down the basics of Enterprise/Scalable MySQL development, below are some of the topics:
  • replication
  • load balancing
  • data backup
  • security
FYI, you can check out a preview here.

Wow, sorry about that. Talk about being a beacon of misinformation. I've updated my post accordingly. Thanks for letting me know.
