Webinar, Thursday, September 8th at 10am PT/1pm ET

MySQL is great for front-end web facing applications. Oracle has proven itself in the demanding back-end data warehouse and reporting solutions. But how to bridge MySQL and Oracle together without paying an arm and a leg for Oracle's GoldenGate replication solution?

In this webcast we'll describe how to design real-time cross-database replication using Tungsten Replicator. We will cover some of the pitfalls and corner cases like SQL dialect differences, data types, character sets, MySQL and Oracle peculiarities. With some expert help from Continuent, Tungsten Replicator makes implementation fast and real time replication operations reliable, even for the high volume environment.

Lee Margulin, Database Administrator at, will speak about how Zappos uses Tungsten to replicate data between Oracle and MySQL.

New on-demand webcast: Building High-Performance, Multi-Terabyte Clusters for MySQL using Tungsten

Tungsten Enterprise allows users to join MySQL databases into powerful clusters that offer 24x7 availability, simple maintenance, and automatic distribution of SQL queries of masters and slaves. Tungsten works with your favorite, off-the-shelf MySQL build and does not require application changes.

In this webcast we describe how we build Tungsten clusters capable of managing 50M transactions per day on multi-terabyte MySQL databases, including:
  • How Tungsten Enterprise works
  • Installing, provisioning, and testing clusters
  • Migrating from MySQL replication to Tungsten
  • Performing planned maintenance and recovering failed nodes
  • Configuring load balancing of read requests to slaves
  • Setting up backup and restore procedures
  • Integration with SAN/NetApp for fast recovery from failures
  • MySQL database configuration for large datasets.
We will of course demo a live cluster. Click here to learn how you can use Tungsten to leverage the power of open source MySQL DBMS to create economical and efficient database services for your applications today.
