Tungsten University: Configure & Provision Continuent Tungsten Clusters

Are you unsure of the steps needed to get your Continuent Tungsten cluster up-and-running? In this virtual course, we teach you how to get from a single database server to a scalable cluster, or from a brittle MySQL replication system to a transparent, manageable Tungsten cluster. 

We discuss the benefits of leveraging Continuent Tungsten clustering with MySQL, and walk you through the steps to implement a Tungsten cluster in Amazon EC2. We cover the prerequisites, installing and configuring Tungsten, and best practices that are part of most production installations and proof-of-concepts. 

Course Topics
  • Configuring MySQL and the OS for proper installation
  • Installing a cross-site cluster
  • Schema upgrade on the master database server with minimal application 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 (recover operation)
  • Switching database operations to a remote site (geo-clustering, cross-site 'switch' operation)
We also discuss and demonstrate basic operations, such as adding and removing a cluster node, basic monitoring and troubleshooting, and discuss the basic failure scenarios. 

Learn how to quickly configure and provision highly optimized Continuent Tungsten deployments in the cloud or on-premises.
