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.

Replicate from Oracle to Oracle, Oracle to MySQL, and Oracle to analytics

Oracle is the most powerful DBMS in the world. However, Oracle's expensive and complex replication makes it difficult to build highly available applications or move data in real-time to data warehouses and popular databases like MySQL.

In this webinar you will learn how Continuent Tungsten solves problems with Oracle replication at a fraction of the cost of other solutions and with less management overhead too -- think "Oracle GoldenGate without the price tag!" We will show you how to replicate data in real-time from Oracle to Oracle, from Oracle to MySQL, and loading a data warehouse.

Continuent is delighted to announce an exciting new Continuent Tungsten feature for MySQL users: replication in real-time from MySQL into Amazon Redshift. In this webinar we showcase Continuent Tungsten capabilities for continuous and real-time data warehouse loading, then zero-in on practical details of setting up replication from MySQL into Redshift.

We cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to real-time data loading from a relational DBMS into data warehouses
  • Continuent Tungsten data warehouse loading to Redshift, Hadoop, Vertica, and Oracle
  • What's new with Redshift data loading
  • Setting up replication from MySQL into Amazon Redshift
  • Initial provisioning of the data, followed by on-going and real-time replication
  • Adding Redshift data loading to existing Continuent Tungsten clusters.

This webinar includes practical tips and a live demo of how to get your data warehouse loading projects off the ground quickly and efficiently. Please join us to hear about this great new feature of Continuent Tungsten!
