MySQL is a highly popular database which runs on many Linux distributions, web hosts, and also available for Windows. Written for database managers and those that want to enhance the performance of their MySQL databases, the book covers advanced topics that include database replication, load-balancing, indexing, optimization, and storage options. In using these strategies, the goal is to anticipate and prepare for the best ways to use MySQL in scaling for mission critical production environments.

The authors present various methods of testing and setting benchmarks, to anticipate where problems may occur as greater demands are made on a database. Their advanced MySQL coverage, garnered through years of hands-on experience and interviews with users, is evident throughout the book.
