Webinar: Implementing Zero-Downtime MySQL Upgrades

Database migrations are one of the primary sources of planned outages in mission-critical web app deployments for businesses ranging from SaaS to social networking and enterprises. In this webinar, we show how to achieve MySQL administration nirvana with Tungsten:

  • Maintain hardware,
  • Migrate to new database versions, and
  • Upgrade SQL schema, all with zero application downtime.

We introduce basics of large-system maintenance and discuss the maintenance tasks that you need to perform and problems you need to overcome in order to avoid outages. We demonstrate how to use Tungsten to build highly available clusters using copies of standard MySQL databases, then cover procedures to:

  • Maintain/replace hardware
  • Add capacity without bringing down applications
  • Migrate MySQL databases to new versions
  • Upgrade application schema.

We conclude with a live demo of a MySQL upgrade with Tungsten. Click here to watch!

Webinar: Move Your Data In Real-time From MySQL To PostgreSQL And Greenplum

Countless petabytes of data are sitting in MySQL database where they are perfectly useless for PostgreSQL users. Fortunately there is a solution: Tungsten Replicator can move data from MySQL to PostgreSQL and Greenplum, and in real time, too.

In this webcast we'll describe how to design cross-database replication, then set it up using Tungsten Replicator. We will cover some of the pitfalls and corner cases like SQL dialect differences, data types, character sets, and MySQL bugs that make implementation both exciting and fun.

We'll conclude with a demo of database updates moving in real time between databases.
