The on-demand webinar for the MySQL Cluster 7.3 Development Release is now available.
You can learn more about the design, implementation and getting started with all of the new MySQL Cluster 7.3 features from the comfort and convenience of your own device, including:
- Auto-installation of higher performance distributed, clusters
We received some great questions over the course of the webinar, and I wanted to share[Read more...]
The first Development Milestone and Early Access releases of MySQL Cluster 7.3 were announced just several weeks ago. To provide more detail and demonstrate the new features, Andrew Morgan and I will be hosting a live webinar (http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/web-seminars/display-726.html) this coming Thursday 25th October at 0900 Pacific Time / 16.00 UTC
Even if you can't make the live webinar, it is still worth registering for the event (http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/web-seminars/display-726.html) as you will receive a notification when the replay will be available, to view on-demand at your convenience
In the webinar, we will discuss the enhancements being previewed as part of MySQL Cluster 7.3, including:[Read more...]
Join companies in the web, gaming, telecoms and mobile areas by learning about MySQL Cluster's distributed, shared-nothing, real-time design.
The 3 days, MySQL Cluster course teaches you how to configure and manage the cluster nodes to ensure high availability. Learn how to install different nodes and understand cluster internals. Here is a sample of some events on the schedule for this course:

Data is the currency of today’s web, mobile, social, enterprise and cloud applications. Ensuring data is always available is a top priority for any organization – minutes of downtime will result in significant loss of revenue and reputation.
There is not a “one size fits all” approach to delivering High Availability (HA). Unique application attributes, business requirements, operational capabilities and legacy infrastructure can all influence HA technology selection. And then technology is only one element in delivering HA – “People and Processes” are just as critical as the technology itself.
For this reason, MySQL Enterprise Edition (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/) is available supporting a range of HA solutions, fully certified and supported by Oracle. MySQL Enterprise HA[Read more...]
At this weeks MySQL Connect conference, Oracle previewed an exciting new wave of developments for MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/), further extending its simplicity and flexibility by expanding the range of use-cases, adding new NoSQL options, and automating configuration.
In this blog, I'll introduce you to the features being previewed.
Review the blogs listed below for more detail on each of the specific features discussed.

I'm speaking at MySQL Connect next Saturday, Sep. 29. My Session is a hands-on lab (HOL) on MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/).
If you are interested in familiarize a bit with MySQL Cluster this is definitely a session for you.
I will start by briefly introducing MySQL Cluster and its architecture. Then I will guide you through the needed steps to install a local MySQL Cluster, connect to it (using the command line), monitor its logs, and safe shutdown it.
We will hence have a chance to see which are the most common commands using in MySQL Cluster
The MySQL Connect conference is only a couple of weeks away, with MySQL engineers, support teams, consultants and community aces busy putting the final touches to their talks.
There will be many exciting new announcements and sharing of best practices at the conference, covering the range of MySQL technologies.
MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/) will a big part of this, so I wanted to share some key sessions for those of you who plan on attending, as well as some resources for those who are not lucky enough to be able to make the trip, but who can't afford to miss the key news. Of course, this is no substitute to actually being there….and the good news is that[Read more...]
With its distributed, shared-nothing, real-time design, MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/) has attracted a lot of attention from developers who need to scale both read and write traffic with ultra-low latency and fault-tolerance, using commodity hardware. With many proven deployments (http://www.mysql.com/customers/cluster/) in web, gaming, telecoms and mobile use-cases, MySQL Cluster is certainly able to meet these sorts of requirements.
But, as a distributed database, developers do need to think a little differently about data access patterns along with schema and query optimisations in order to get the best possible performance.
Sharing best practices developed by working with MySQL Cluster's largest users, we recently ran a Performance Essentials webinar[Read more...]
The MySQL Cluster engineering team recently ran a live webinar, available now on-demand (http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/on-demand-webinars/display-od-716.html) demonstrating the ClusterJ and ClusterJPA NoSQL APIs for MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/), and how these can be used in building real-time, high scale Java-based services that require continuous availability.
Attendees asked a number of great questions during the webinar, and I thought it would be useful to share those here, so others are also able to learn more about the Java NoSQL APIs.
First, a little bit about why we developed these APIs and why they are interesting to Java developers.
ClusterJ and Cluster JPA
ClusterJ is a Java interface to MySQL Cluster that provides either a static or dynamic domain object model, similar to the data model used[Read more...]

Earlier this week, Andrew Morgan wrote a piece on running MySQL Cluster on Raspberry Pi. Since the term “Cluster” is hideously overloaded, I’ll note that we’re talking about the NDB cluster storage engine here, a very specific architecture originally acquired by MySQL AB from Ericsson (telco).
Raspberry Pi is a new single-board computer based on the ARM processor series (same stuff that powers most mobile phones these days), and it can run Linux without any fuss. Interfaces include Ethernet, USB, and HDMI video, and the cost is $25-50. I’m looking[Read more...]
I had to install Percona XtraDB Cluster, I think for the first time since it was announced stable. I remembered many problems I faced with beta releases, which was understandable given they were only for a preview, but this time I hoped for significant improvements.
I have to say I am generally quite sensitive about simple problems that could/should be easily discovered and corrected. Well, it didn’t take five minutes to see a few of such problems. These minutes I spent installing the database binaries from Percona Yum repository. It turned out that was enough to see a lot of errors for no reason. Not a good thing.
