Real-time data loading from Oracle and MySQL to data warehouses, analytics

Analyzing transactional data is becoming increasingly common, especially as the data sizes and complexity increase and transactional stores are no longer to keep pace with the ever-increasing storage. Although there are many techniques available for loading data, getting effective data in real-time into your data warehouse store is a more difficult problem.

In this webinar-on-demand we showcase VMware Continuent's capabilities for continuous and real-time data warehouse loading. We share practical tips and a live demo of how to get your data warehouse loading projects off the ground quickly and efficiently.

Business continuity with geographically distributed multi-master MySQL clusters

Global data access can greatly expand the reach of your business. Continuent's multi-site multi-master (MSMM) solutions enable applications to accept write traffic in multiple locations across on-premises and vCloud Air. 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 clusters already provide excellent single-site database availability and performance. In this webinar we review the benefits of combining multiple Continuent clusters into a global multi-site multi-master database cluster (MSMM) topology for:
  • Optimizing your installation for MSMM
  • Optimizing your application for MSMM
  • Monitoring and administration
  • Failover and recovery of individual servers or entire locations.
