MySQL HA / DR / Geo-Scale Competitive Comparison

Tungsten Cluster Competitive Comparison:
In-House DIY MySQL HA Solutions

Find out why Tungsten Cluster is a better and more cost-effective overall MySQL HA /DR /Geo-Scale solution compared to solutions that would have been developed in-house.

While there are organisations that have the internal resources to build and maintain their own high availability solutions for MySQL, with tools such as Orchestrator and a proxy like ProxySQL for example, commercially-supported enterprise software is less risky and in fact less costly.

  • The labor time spent building and maintaining a DIY solution costs more than a supported solution that just works.
  • There is documentation, training, support, so your mission-critical process is never dependent upon an irreplaceable individual.

Contact us and become a customer: we will provide the Tungsten Cluster software solution to you free for the first six months, then competitively-priced going forwards.
