- The ability of creating a group of unrelated servers. Previously, there was only the
set_replication.plcommand, to create a set of master+slaves. Now the
set_many.plcommand will create unrelated servers;
- The creation of a
start_proxyscript with replication installations. This script starts MySQL Proxy using as backends all the servers in the group.
If you missed the previous episodes, MySQL Sandbox is a tool used to install an isolated MySQL server, independently from existing instances in the host. It can also install a replicated system of 1 master + N slaves. All the above happens in seconds.
I will be speaking about the Sandbox at the Hamburg meetup and at the MySQL Users Conference and Expo.
