Tungsten Clustering Benefits:

Global MySQL HA/DR

Serve a geographically distributed user base.

Deploy global MySQL clusters that are locally and globally aware right out-of-the-box.

Global MySQL Explained

Geographic distribution of MySQL or MariaDB is Continuent's bread and butter. Add multiple clusters across multiple regions and manage them all from the command line or from a single pane, the Tungsten Dashboard. Read more about MySQL geographic distribution in the associated blog Category: Geographic Distribution.

Global and Geo-MySQL In Practice

With Tungsten's geographic or global distribution of MySQL, gain low-latency, geo-distributed data access for fast response times as well as local, rapid-failover automated high availability in an active/passive or active/active configuration. All local cluster nodes and components are globally aware and able to adapt intelligently to keep the data service available.

Our Competitive Advantage

Tungsten Clustering is the only solution that was designed with global, geo-distributed MySQL in mind. That is why Tungsten leverages asynchronous technology, for the fastest application responsiveness especially across WAN. No solution for geo-scale and geographic distribution of MySQL provides comparable stability, performance, and quality of Support.

How does Tungsten Cluster work?

Watch the short demo about MySQL HA. Achieve Geo-MySQL and global MySQL by adding clusters in different regions in a managed, globally-aware mesh.

Common Geo-Distributed, Multi-Site Configurations

Tungsten global MySQL clustering is a globally-aware “cluster of clusters" building upon standalone local MySQL HA clustering in a modular design, and extending the managed mesh to additional sites, regions, and across the globe. You may span across clouds (Multi-Cloud), and integrate on-premises hardware with cloud-based instances (Hybrid-Cloud).

MySQL Primary/DR Geo-Cluster

A “Cluster of Clusters” where one cluster contains the single active, writable primary. All other clusters and nodes are passive and read-only. Typically two or more clusters.

Primary Cluster: one (1) primary + two (2) failover/read replicas
DR Cluster: one (1) relay + two (2) failover/read replicas

In the Tungsten Composite Active/Passive Cluster topology (Active/Passive), there is a single writeable primary node across all sites, and all writes are directed to that primary. The Connectors are multi-site aware and will automatically react to a site failover. Replication flows in one direction only, from the current active primary cluster to the passive DR cluster(s).

This topology provides a highly-available local operations and an active failover site that is also available for reads. It is well-suited for customers who seek the highest level of HA, with the ability to operate applications on both sites, without application changes.

The Active/Passive Tungsten Clustering solution is for SaaS providers, e-commerce companies, financial services providers, gaming companies and telco providers who are seeking five-9s availability for their business-critical and mission-critical MySQL applications.

MySQL Active/Active Geo-Cluster

A “cluster of clusters” where all clusters contain a writable primary. Typically two or more clusters.

Primary Cluster: one (1) primary + two (2) failover/read replicas
Primary Cluster: one (1) primary + two (2) failover/read replicas

In the Tungsten Active/Active Cluster topology (Active/Active), there is one writeable primary node per cluster, and all writes are directed to that primary by the local Connectors. The Connectors are able to use any other site in the event of a local outage; both sites are write-able at all times, and each cluster replicates from all other member clusters.

This topology links highly-available clusters across sites to enable constant availability for updates in two locations separated by high-latency networks.

The Active/Active Tungsten Clustering solution is perfect for those business-critical and mission-critical MySQL applications that require lower latency for local updates while still needing to maintain completely geo-distributed data sets for Disaster Recovery needs. It is recommended for SaaS applications, credit card payment gateways, or online services that must always be available for business.
