Arjen Lentz says "I think Brian is right...", and Frank Mash confirmed: "what Brian says about replication, caching and memcached is very true".
Just like Video killed the Radio Star it looks like maybe Memcached killed the Replication Hierarchy!
But of course, Brian and others are talking about replication for scaling reads.
In my session on PBXT next week at the conference I will be talking about how we plan to use synchronous replication to produce an HA solution for MySQL at the engine level.
I will also discuss how some flexibility in the PBXT architecture makes it possible to actually scale writes efficiently as mentioned by Arjen in his blog.
So don't miss it:
