CTO Robert Hodges of Continuent presents highly technical webinar (register at http://continuent.webex.com/) how Tungsten clustering allows you to achieve database administration nirvana: maintain hardware, migrate to new database versions, and upgrade SQL schema on MySQL without requiring a maintenance window.
Robert's talk will start out by introducing basics of large-system maintenance, including maintenance window concepts and a discussion of the types of maintenance tasks that you need to perform as well as the problems you need to overcome in order to avoid outages. He will also introduce Tungsten clustering and explain how it creates highly available clusters using copies of standard MySQL databases.
Robert will show you specific procedures to:
- Maintain/replace existing hardware
- Add capacity to current systems
- Migrate MySQL databases to new versions
- Upgrade application schema
