Geographically Distributed Multi-Master MySQL Clusters

register new

Global data access can greatly expand the reach of your business. Continuent Tungsten multi-site multi-master (MSMM) solutions enable applications to accept write traffic in multiple locations across on-premises and vCloud Air. This includes the following important real-world use cases:

  • Improve performance for globally distributed users registering hardware devices by permitting updates on the geographically closest site
  • Ensure availability of credit card processing by spreading transaction processing across two or more sites. Users can still process credit card transactions if a single site is unavailable to them for any reason, including end-user Internet routing problems
  • Enable business continuity by using multi-master updates on different hosting providers for service scalability, personalization and software upgrades of GPS devices.

Individual Continuent Tungsten clusters already provide excellent single-site database availability and performance. In this webinar we review the benefits of combining multiple Continuent Tungsten clusters into a global multi-site multi-master (MSMM) topology for:

  • Optimizing your installation for MSMM
  • Optimizing your application for MSMM
  • Monitoring and administration
  • Failover and recovery of individual servers or entire locations.

MySQL High Availability and Disaster Recovery

register new

Users seeking high availability, disaster recovery and zero downtime maintenance operation for business-critical MySQL applications face confusing choices. Is multi-master or master/slave clustering better? What about synchronous versus asynchronous replication? Using a plain vanilla, stock MySQL or a modified version of it? Which of these choices are right for data-driven businesses that depend on fast, reliable data access?

This no-BS webinar cuts through the FUD to explore the real trade-offs between the different clustering and replication methods, then shows you how Continuent  asynchronous master/slave clusters support these important capabilities for business-critical applications:

  • High application write rates
  • Mixed workloads consisting of large and small transactions
  • Data across multiple geographically distributed locations
  • Failures and more importantly recovery from them
  • Zero downtime maintenance and software upgrades
  • Use of off-the-shelf MySQL/MariaDB to avoid application changes and allow clusters to improve as MySQL itself does.

We'll illustrate key points with demonstrations and case studies from deployed systems.

Real-time Data Loading from Oracle and MySQL to Data Warehouses, Analytics

register new

Analyzing transactional data is becoming increasingly common, especially as the data sizes and complexity increase and transactional stores are no longer to keep pace with the ever increasing storage. Although there are many techniques available for loading data, getting effective data in real-time into your data warehouse store is a more difficult problem.

In this webinar we showcase Continuent Tungsten capabilities for continuous and real-time data warehouse loading. We share practical tips and a live demo of how to get your data warehouse loading projects off the ground quickly and efficiently.

MySQL in the Cloud, is Amazon RDS for you?

With more and more business moving into the cloud, the inclination is to use more cloud-based databases services, such as Amazon RDS. Deployment of Amazon RDS is capable with just a few buttons, but there are big differences between firing up a simple database for testing, and translating that into a full deployment to be used in production. For this to work properly, you have to consider many other aspects of the deployment, including high availability (HA), disaster recovery (DR), and scalability of your solution within your application's requirements.

Continuent Tungsten provides a full data management solution that is already handling hundreds of millions of transactions daily for our customers. This webinar explores how your business can benefit from Continuent Tungsten, a flexible clustering solution that helps data-driven businesses handle billions of transactions daily across a wide range of environments. We'll focus on the following problems in particular:

  • Ensuring fully capable cloud DBMS operation
  • Avoiding lock-in by choosing solutions that run across clouds as well as on-premises
  • Spreading MySQL data over regions using flexible primary/DR and multi-master topologies
  • Controlling maintenance intervals and the DBMS stack directly
  • Integrating in real-time to data warehouses and on-premises DBMS like Oracle
  • Ensuring immediate access to top-notch, 24x7 support when things go south.

Learn how you can use Continuent Tungsten to build scalable management solutions that offer the economic benefits of the cloud with the enterprise capabilities required by businesses that live and die by their data. Your data is too precious to take shortcuts.
