-- This is a full day tutorial -- Modern business require complex data management, which result in complex problems. Although MySQL native replication offers a robust streaming in simple topologies, it is not up to the tasks required today: * seamless failover * multiple masters * fan-in replication * data transformation * replication from and to different database servers. All the above, and more, is solved by Tungsten Replicator. In this full day tutorial we will explore the possibilities that Tungsten Replicator can provide to solve complex replication problems. Tungsten Replicator ( is a high performance, open source, data replication engine for MySQL that is a drop in replacement for standard MySQL replication. In the first part we will cover * The Tungsten Replicator components. * Basic replication stream and THL Structure * Tungsten replicator administration tasks. * Setting up Master-Master Replication. * Conflict detection and prevention using Tungsten system of records. * Fan-In replication combining multiple datasources into a single instance. * Star Replication. * Using Parallel replication to speed up replication. * setting complex topologies (all-masters + fan-in + simple slaves) In the second part, we will cover advanced Filtering and Replication. Tungsten Replicator provides an alternative to native MySQL replication, while also provided replication to other databases. Not only that, but because we have control over the replication streams, we can use that to perform different filtering operations on the data.   + Enabling security and encryption + Filter basics + Enabling filters and configuration + Standard built-in filters Heterogeneous Deployments   + Creating new heterogeneous installations + Enabling replication from existing clusters + Replicating to MongoDB + Replicating to Vertica + Replicating to Oracle JavaScript Filters + JavaScript data structures + Writing JavaScript filters + Practical JavaScript filters + Fun JavaScript filters The tutorial will be hands on, demonstrating how advanced replication operates and how to use and enable different filters to massage the data.
