Continuent Announces Live MySQL Clustering Webinar Series for Data Driven Businesses

Continuent, Inc.:

WHAT: Continuent, Inc., a leading provider of open source database clustering and replication solutions, today announced a comprehensive, three part Continuent Tungsten webinar series designed to help data driven organizations fully leverage the Continuent Tungsten solution. This latest series of complimentary courses will explore important details of clustering and replication that will help organizations learn how to handle billions of transactions daily across a wide range of environments.

WHY: These webinars are designed to help organizations provide enterprise-class high availability, globally redundant data distribution and real-time heterogeneous data integration within their enterprise. Each live virtual course will help users to identify the real trade-offs between the different clustering and replication methods, and how to build scalable, geographically distributed solutions in the cloud and on-premises.

WHEN: The hour-long webinars will take place at 1:00 pm EDT/10:00 am PDT. Dates and topics include:

  • Thursday, July 10th: Harnessing the Power of Master/Slave Clusters to Operate Data-Driven Clusters on MySQL. This webinar will help users requiring high-availability, disaster recovery and zero downtime maintenance operation for business-critical MySQL applications to sift through the noise of the confusing choices and determine which are better for their business. Illustrating key points with demonstrations and customer case studies, this session will explore the differences between multi-master and master/slave clustering, synchronous vs. asynchronous replication, and how Continuent Tungsten asynchronous master/slave clusters support business-critical MySQL applications.
  • Thursday, July 24th: Geographically Distributed Multi-Master MySQL Clusters. 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. Through real-world use cases, we will review the benefits of combining multiple Continuent Tungsten clusters into a global multi-site multi-master topology. This session will also describe how companies have improved the performance for globally distributed users registering hardware devices by permitting updates on the geographically closest site.
  • Thursday, August 7th: Picking the Right Cluster for MySQL: Cloud-Only Services or Flexible Tungsten Clusters? As businesses head into the cloud, it is tempting to reach for the first product that offers to make database operation as simple as punching a few buttons on a menu. However, there's a big difference between firing up cloud database services such as Amazon RDS for testing or development and finding a solution that can handle hundreds of millions of transactions daily. This webinar explores how businesses can benefit from Continuent Tungsten, a flexible clustering solution that helps data-driven businesses handle billions of transactions daily across a wide range of environments.
