Continuous Database Operations | Geo-Distributed MySQL Clusters | Complete, Fully-Integrated, Proven

MySQL HA / DR / Geo-Scale Competitive Comparison

We evaluated all alternative MySQL Clustering solutions based on the following features and benefits: Continuous Operations, Scaling, Geographic Scaling, Performance, Transparency, Security, Management and Monitoring.

Tungsten Clustering is the only complete, fully-integrated, fully-tested MySQL HA, DR and geo-clustering solution running on-premises and in the cloud combined with industry-best and fastest, 24/7 support for business-critical MySQL, MariaDB, & Percona Server applications.

It allows enterprises running business-critical MySQL database applications to cost-effectively achieve continuous global operations with commercial-grade high availability (HA), geographically redundant disaster recovery (DR) and geographically distributed active/active.

Continuous Operations

Local clustering for enterprise-grade high availability (HA) and multi-site clustering for best-in-class disaster recovery (DR).

High Availability

Automated local failover, automated recovery and failback for MySQL and MariaDB clusters.

Disaster Recovery

Composite “clusters of clusters” spread across two or more sites or cloud data centers for a geographically distributed managed mesh of MySQL or MariaDB clusters.

Global Scaling

Geo-distributed and global clusters that are locally and globally aware. Serve a geographically-distributed user base with high availability and performance.

What Our Customers Say

The only thing Marketo has more passion for than its product, is its customers. By leveraging the Tungsten Clustering platform by Continuent, we have increased our ability to provide higher levels of availability and uptime, including complex database upgrades and operations in production. With Tungsten Clustering there is no down time, just predictable degradation of the performance until misbehaving servers will be up again.

We have Tungsten Clustering in all of our environments (development/QA/uat/production), and we’re using it for all of our web applications. We sell almost 1M used cars a year using Tungsten Clustering. I’ve been really impressed with the intelligence of both the software and the support we receive from Continuent. I have nothing but good things to say about your software and your company. We currently have 100 MySQL servers running Tungsten Clustering and love the ease of use and management.

Tungsten Clustering has allowed us to deploy clusters in the Amazon Cloud quickly, which is key for our rapidly growing company. In addition, Tungsten Clustering is a key component in allowing us to meet our uptime SLA. Perhaps the most important item is the support we receive from Continuent, which I am pleased to say, responds quickly and resolves all issues (including self-inflicted!), and accepts feedback for future enhancements.

The main problem we had, which Continuent software helped us solve, is sudden spike in traffic, which we experience often. Tungsten Clustering helped us to divert that traffic efficiently, thus keep our production environment up and running. I would recommend Tungsten Clustering for its ease of use and stability.

Tungsten Clustering is a really cool product. We can swap back-and-forth between our master and any number of slaves without losing a single query in the process. We can take a component offline, do updates, and restart it. We can do schema changes to the slave and bring it up as a new master. Lots of cool things there.

Continuent is one of the better software choices we've made in the last 3-4 years. We're really happy with the product and ecstatic about the support.
