Presentation : Automating MySQL upgrades (and more!) with Ansible
Having a large number of MySQL/MariaDB servers means operational tasks can be quite challenging.
In this talk we will review how Ansible can make life easier by helping to automate tasks like version upgrades and backup/restore.
We will start with a quick introduction to Ansible, and show examples of actual playbooks for commonly-found tasks. Hopefully you can leave this session with some code you can reuse in your particular environment.
