  • “Should I Migrate to Version 5.3 of the MariaDB Database?” – Written by Mark Riddoch, SkySQL’s Senior Software Architect, this white paper looks at those features that have been added in the version 5.3 of the MariaDB™ database and compares them to what is available with version 5.5 of the MySQL® database. This white paper addresses the value that might be gained from migrating from version 5.5 of the MySQL database (or earlier) to version 5.3 of the MariaDB database.
  • “A Closer Look at MySQL Cluster:  An Architectural Overview” – MySQL® Cluster is a separate product from the standard MySQL database, despite their being tightly linked. Due to the distributed nature of MySQL Cluster, it has a far more complicated architecture than a standard MySQL database. This white paper, written by Max Mether, SkySQL’s Training Services Manager, will describe the architecture of the MySQL Cluster product and how the process and data flow takes place between the nodes of the cluster.
  • “A Quick Start Guide to SkySQL Enterprise Monitor” – In this Quick Start Guide, Maria Luisa Raviol, a SkySQL Sales Engineer, provides users with an overview of SkySQL Enterprise Monitor’s main features and advice on how it can be used in real life situations.
  • “Creating a High Availability Database Solution, the Easy Way” – In this white paper SkySQL’s Software Architect, Mark Riddoch, discusses the use of SkySQL Reference Architecture Provisioning System to painlessly create a high availability MySQL® database server.
