MySQL High Availability and Disaster Recovery


watch buttonThursday, January 29th
10:00 am PST/ 1:00 pm EST

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 Tungsten 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.

Geographically Distributed Multi-Master MySQL Clusters


watch buttonTuesday, February 10th
10:00 am PST/ 1:00 pm EST

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 cloud providers. 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.

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


watch buttonTuesday, March 3rd
10:00 am PST/ 1:00 pm EST

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'll share practical tips and a live demo of how to get your data warehouse loading projects off the ground quickly and efficiently.
