How do you make sure your database server is never down, even for upgrades, network failures, and "Acts Of God"? How can you scale out to thousands of database connections? Most of all, how do you do this without going bankrupt?

Keeping operations up 24X7 to enable global business activity is a daunting task, made the more challenging when you consider that resources are tight and down-time is almost non-existent. High Availability is a conspicuous goal for not only multinational corporate data centers but volunteer web sites as well. Join Eero Teerikorpi of Emic Networks, Andrew Sullivan of Afilias, Stephen Ball of CA and Jeremy Cole of Yahoo! as they demonstrate and discuss techniques, strategies, and features for keeping MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Ingres running all the time, everywhere.
