Advance Info for High Availability Deep Dive attendees at MySQL conf

For those of you coming to the High Availability Deep Dive tutorial that Yves Trudeau and myself will be co-presenting next Tuesday, here's advance information which you will find useful.

Now updated and fixed for Planet MySQL. Sorry about the earlier inconvenience.

As our tutorial is going to be highly interactive, every attendee will have the opportunity to follow along with Yves and me as we walk you through several deployment scenarios for Pacemaker MySQL high availability. We're coming with pre-installed virtual machine images for you to use.

Yves has prepared virtual appliances for VirtualBox for you, and I took care of the Libvirt/KVM (or Libvirt/Qemu) and VMware images. The download links are here:

If one of those links produces a 404 for you, then that means it isn't fully synced yet, and you should just come back in an our or two. Those images are literally hot off the presses and just uploading.

Don't worry about actually setting them up just yet; you'll have time to do so at the start of the tutorial. Those of you who download ahead of time – it would be a wonderful move if you could copy your downloads onto a USB thumbdrive and share with co-attendees.

Our tutorial starts on Tuesday at 9:30 in Ballroom H; if you show up early then that will be no problem. At least one of us should be there by 8:45 at the latest. See you there!
