New webinar-on-demand: Geographically distributed multi-master MySQL clusters

https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/601886553
Global data access can greatly expand the reach of your business. Continuent Tungsten multi-site multi-master (MSMM) solutions enable applications to accept write traffic in multiple locations across on-premises and cloud providers. This includes the following important real-world use cases:
  • Improve performance for globally distributed users registering hardware devices by permitting updates on the geographically closest site.
  • Ensure availability of credit card processing by spreading transaction processing across two or more sites. Users can still process credit card transactions if a single site is unavailable to them for any reason, including end-user Internet routing problems.
  • Enable business continuity by using multi-master updates on different hosting providers for service scalability, personalization and software upgrades of GPS devices.
Individual Continuent Tungsten clusters already provide excellent single-site database availability and performance. In this webinar-on-demand we review the benefits of combining multiple Continuent Tungsten clusters into a global multi-site multi-master topology for:
  • Optimizing your installation for MSMM
  • Optimizing your application for MSMM
  • Monitoring and administration
  • Failover and recovery of individual servers or entire locations.

Harnessing the power of master/slave clusters to operate data-driven businesses on MySQL

Users seeking high availability, DR and zero downtime maintenance operation for business-critical MySQL applications face confusing choices. Is multi-master or master/slave clustering better?  What about synchronous versus asynchronous replication? Using a plain vanilla, stock MySQL or a modified version of it? Which of these choices are right for data-driven businesses that depend on fast, reliable data access?

This no-BS webinar-on-demand cuts through the FUD to explore the real trade-offs between the different clustering and replication methods, then show you how Continuent Tungsten asynchronous master/slave clusters support these important capabilities for business-critical applications:

  • High application write rates
  • Mixed workloads consisting of large and small transactions
  • Data across multiple geographically distributed locations
  • Failures and more importantly recovery from them
  • Zero downtime maintenance and software upgrades
  • Use of off-the-shelf MySQL/MariaDB to avoid application changes and allow clusters to improve as MySQL itself does
We will illustrate key points with demonstrations and case studies from deployed systems.  Click here to view this educational session on the cutting edge of MySQL data management!
