Part 1: MySQL Cluster as NoSQL Tutorial

Replication and High Availability Strategies
3 December 09:00 - 12:00 @ Cromwell Suite

MySQL Cluster offers rich SQL functionality of an RDBMS and many interesting NoSQL options co-existing in one environment at the same time. It provides full transactional support with a relational model, 99.999% availability, real-time access and a lot more.

In this tutorial we will learn the following things:

* MySQL Cluster architecture
* MySQL Cluster basic administration
* Loading data
* NoSQL options for MySQL Cluster and when to use what
- Memcached
- Cluster/J

There will be hands on exercises, especially on the memcached access to NDB data on the above topics, with programming (simple). We will also have examples for those interested in C++ programming using the NDBAPI.

Finally, we will compare performance on a real cluster using different access methods.
