MySQL UC 2008: Mitigating Database Replication Latency
September 15, 2008
At last year's MySQL User Conference, I gave a presentation titled "Mitigating Replication Latency in a Distributed Application Environment" This was a fun presentation to do as it highlights what I think is one of the thorniest issues we've encountered building the Clickability Platform.
We have a distributed platform environment that is built around the loose coupling of applications around a replicated database infrastructure. There is always latency in database replication and we've gone through several iterations of how to create a reliable cache clearing mechanism to account for such.
