With all the excitement surrounding the perfect Thanksgiving meal, it's often easy to overlook how to prep your database environment for the biggest online shopping day of the year! Each year, more and more shoppers opt for online holiday deals, instead of the more traditional mall experience, which means that retailers must prepare for multiple days of high online traffic to their e-commerce sites.

With the recent announcement of MariaDB ColumnStore, we get many questions on the architecture and functionality of MariaDB ColumnStore. This blog post describes the architecture of MariaDB ColumnStore.
Today, I’m excited to announce the general availability of MariaDB MaxScale 2.0, our next generation database proxy. This new version includes important new functionality that integrates data streaming with Kafka and other data sources, as well as significant development work for better security and high availability.

Let's assume you want to start an automatically expanding and shrinking MySQL replication cluster with up-to seven database servers. This blog shows how to setup up and start MaxScale to work with a master and a single slave and, when needed, how it adapts to the changing cluster configurations. While the set up here is simple similar behavior can be applied in bigger and more complex scenarios.
At Booking.com, we have very wide replication topologies. It is not uncommon to have more than fifty (and sometimes more than a hundred) slaves replicating from the same master. When reaching this number of slaves, one must be careful not to saturate the network interface of the master. A solution exists but it has its weaknesses. We came up with an alternative approach that better fits our needs: the Binlog Server.
