Webinar 9/27: MySQL High Availability Realized

High availability is about more than just making sure that applications can get to your data, even if there is a failure:
  • How about when you are upgrading your database schema
  • What if you need to add memory to a database server or reconfigure/restart MySQL
  • If your apps want to read data from a MySQL slave, how can you be sure they are not reading stale data without re-coding your apps
  • What if your main data center takes a hit
  • And what if you want better MySQL stability, performance, and simplified administration, but you cannot or do not want to re-write your apps or convert your current data to run with a proprietary MySQL re-write or a promised new version of MySQL?
In this live webcast, Robert Hodges (CEO) and Edward Archibald (CTO) will go through a detailed case study to show you how you can start with the MySQL version/build, along with the data and apps that you already have, and iteratively build up a highly-available, scalable, multi-site database infrastructure where you can perform complex data management tasks with single commands.

Robert & Ed will run live demos of the following:
  • Transition from MySQL 'native' replication to a Continuent Tungsten cluster with zero app downtime
  • Reading consistent data from slaves without application changes (SmartScale)
  • Schema upgrade on the master database server with no app downtime (switch operation)
  • Automated fail over when a MySQL database server crashes
  • Recovery of a failed master to a fully operational slave with a single command
  • Switch of database operations to a remote site with no app down time (geo-clustering, cross-site 'switch' operation).
