Solving Large-Scale Database Administration with Continuent Tungsten


MySQL-based systems are growing into mixed environments that include MySQL along with other SQL and NoSQL databases connected by complex replication topologies that span multiple sites. Administering such environments has become a time-consuming and almost impossible task. This talk covers how Continuent Tungsten handles these problems and reduces the stress on overloaded DBAs.

We cover:

  • Handling failures of a single server as well as whole data centers
  • Backups and recovery
  • Deploying extra nodes and clusters
  • Replicating between MySQL and Oracle
  • Publishing data from MySQL into MongoDB and Vertica
  • Creating reporting aggregation servers using fan-in
  • Building active-active sites using flexible multi-master
  • Deploying in the cloud
