Optimizing your database performance is important, but it often falls by the wayside in the bustle of daily business. This blog reviews three common performance issues, with easy-to-address tuning solutions.
Most of the time when you start a database design you don’t imagine how your applications need to scale. Sometimes, you need to shard your databases among some different hosts and then, on each shard you want to split reads and writes between master and slaves.

The binlog cache files in the MaxScale host can now be encrypted.
MaxScale binlog server also uses SSL in communication with the master and the slave servers.
This blog covers how the binary log encryption works in MariaDB Server and in MariaDB MaxScale.
