SkySQL’s Newest Training Course, “MySQL Database for the Cloud”, Helps DBAsand Developers Find Success in the Cloud

Increasingly, more organisations are moving their database applications to cloud to take advantage of its superior agility and faster deployment over legacy systems.
If your organization is thinking about moving its MySQL applications to the cloud, it’s important that you and your team know all there is to know about configuring, deploying, and managing a MySQL database in the cloud.

To get you off on the right foot, SkySQL has introduced a new training course designed to help you successfully deploy a MySQL database as part of your cloud architecture.  From selecting best-of-class cloud providers to reviewing best practices for configuring your database, this 3 day, instructor-led course will teach you the ins and outs of deploying MySQL in the cloud.  Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Identify the trade-offs between Do-it-yourself vs. DBaaS approaches
  • Choose a hosting solution or cloud provider most appropriate for your needs
  • Migrate existing apps to and design new apps for the cloud
  • Implement, deploy, monitor, and maintain your MySQL database in the cloud
  • Configure your MySQL database to take advantage of a cloud environment

The course will also feature an extensive discussion on rapid deployment, availability zones, monitoring and managing MySQL database instances, scaling up and out, load balancing, backup and recovery, and more!

The new course will be available in 10 cities across the US and Europe, starting in early 2013.  View our class schedule for more details.
