MySQL Slave setup

Posted April 8, 2014 2.6k views
We have a large-ish MySQL setup (160GB Database). Using mysqldump to setup a read replica is not really a feasible solution. I would love to use the snapshot feature of D.O. to create a read replica. Anyone have ideas on how to do this? Dear DO: this would make a great tutorial!
