SkySQL Training Creates Future MySQL(R) Database Cloud Experts

Instructor-Led "MySQL(R) Database for the Cloud" Course Available in Early 2013 in Five Cities Worldwide

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- SkySQL, the trusted provider of open source database solutions, today debuted details and schedules for its first-ever "MySQL® Database for the Cloud" training course. The instructor-led classes, available in early 2013 in five cities across US and Europe, help skilled DBAs and developers move MySQL database migrations into the cloud.

US dates scheduled in early 2013 include:

Due to its superior agility and faster deployment capabilities than legacy systems, more organizations are moving applications to the cloud with databases being of particular interest. DBAs should therefore at least be able to know how to maintain databases that are operating in a cloud environment. Cost is a factor in moving to the cloud, but its influence is not as great as originally thought. Using open source code in the cloud, which is continually tested and improved, will reap benefits for DBAs.

With that in mind, SkySQL's new training course is designed to help those who want to get the best from the MySQL database as part of their cloud computing architecture. Beginning with sharing details of "do it yourself" vs. DBaaS, the class curriculum focuses on the pros and cons of different cloud providers, as well as MySQL-specific use cases that both work and don't work in a cloud environment. There is also deep discussion covering rapid deployment, availability zones, monitoring and managing MySQL database instances, scaling up and out, load balancing, failover, recovery, replication and more.

For those thinking about moving their MySQL database into the cloud, this is the only class that gives DBAs personalized instruction on doing it successfully. According to Max Mether, SkySQL manager of training services, "If you're thinking about moving your MySQL system to the cloud, now is the time to do it. We'll hold your hand every step of the way to minimize risk and help you best understand how to make it work for you today and in the future. You'll be a MySQL in the cloud expert in no time."

Each three-day course is led by an instructor and includes hands-on lab exercises. Attendees will learn how to:

  • Identify the pros and cons of DIY vs DBaaS approaches in the cloud
  • Choose a hosting solution or cloud provider that best suits their requirements
  • Migrate existing apps to the cloud, as well as how to best design new apps
  • Implement, deploy, monitor, and maintain their cloud environment
  • Configure their MySQL database to best utilize the cloud environment

Basic DBA knowledge is required to attend the course. It is also recommended that students attend the "Administering MySQL®" or "Developing Applications with the MySQL® Database" training courses prior to registering for the "MySQL® for the Cloud" course.

Service providers will w...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
