Harnessing the Power of Master/Slave Clusters to Operate Data-Driven Businesses on MySQL

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 show 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 illustrate key points with demonstrations and case studies from deployed systems.
