The pundits said MySQL was on the ropes after the Oracle acquisition in 2009. Far from it! Thanks to a burst of innovation and three popular builds, MySQL is an even safer bet to build 24x7 transaction processing systems. But how do you handle requirements to spread data across regions or add real-time analytics? How do you scale up to Big Data on cloud platforms? At Continuent we believe the answer is to embed off-the-shelf MySQL in "data fabrics" consisting of modular data services tied together by advanced replication. Data fabrics support upgrade, geographic expansion, and integration of cloud and NoSQL technologies. Data fabrics are the key to a new generation of flexible MySQL applications that will operate far into the future.
