As mentioned in an earlier post the partitioning in 5.1 has reached a level of
stability so that it can now be put to some heavier test. To spread further
insights of the new partitioning feature I'll deliver two webinars next week
and the week after that (29 nov and 5 Dec).
You'll find a reference to both from the MySQL Home Page.
The first one will give an introduction to partitioning in MySQL and
describe the variants of partitioning that will be supported, which
management variants that are possible and so forth.
The second webinar is a follow-up that will do some repetition to
ensure it can be viewed stand-alone but will mainly dive a little
deeper into various areas of partitioning amongst other how it
relates to MySQL Cluster.
