As businesses head into the cloud, it is tempting to reach for the first product that offers to make database operation as simple as punching a few buttons on a menu. However, there’s a big difference between firing up cloud database services such as Amazon RDS for testing or development and finding a solution that can handle hundreds of millions of transactions daily. This webinar-on-demand
In this virtual course, you will learn how to get from a single database server to a scalable cluster, or from a brittle MySQL replication system to a transparent, manageable Continuent Tungsten cluster.
We discuss the benefits of leveraging Continuent Tungsten clustering with MySQL, and walk you through the steps to implement a Continuent Tungsten cluster in Amazon EC2.
In today's webinar, we discuss the multi-master capabilities of Continuent Tungsten to help you build and manage systems that spread data across multiple sites.
We cover important topics such as setting up large scale topologies, handling failures, and how to handle data privacy issues like removing personally identifiable information or handling privacy law restrictions on data movement. We
How To Configure Tungsten Connector For Load Balancing, Read/Write Splitting, Automatic Failover And Online Maintenance
High Availability (HA) ensures all important business information is available for your application even when there is no database failure. This includes:
How about when you are upgrading your database schema? What if you need to add memory to a database server or reconfigure/restart MySQL? If your apps want to read data from a MySQL slave, how can you be sure they are not reading stale data
Cross-site databases are the next challenge facing today's MySQL-based businesses. Continuent Tungsten provides multiple options for spreading data across sites, including primary/DR, multi-master, and system-of-record approaches. Learn how Continuent Tungsten enables replication, failover, and routing of transactions between sites.
In this video (recording of our webinar on 10/11/12) we
mysql-proxy defaults to round-robin load balancing.
There are fancy tricks around to get
balance connections based on how many idle
connections there are in a proxy-based connection pool.
But there is no code that I found that would simply load balance based on “always go to one server, go to another server only when the first server is down.”
Well, I spent way too long figuring this out today, again running into the problem where the manual hasn’t been updated. I have indeed made a Forge snippet of this code, but it does not hurt to post it here.
This was in fact taken from …[Read more]
