User Profile

Tungsten Topology
Tungsten Cluster Composite Active/Active (CAA) MySQL


True MySQL active/active clustering in multiple geographical locations

This customer needed true MySQL active/active clustering in multiple, geographically distributed locations, as their IoT devices are deployed worldwide. At the same time, they were proactively planning for a massive increase in database load and, based on previous experience, they knew that it would require additional sharding in AWS RDS.


We replaced an AWS RDS/MySQL solution with Tungsten Cluster CAA composite active/active MySQL solution to offer a geo-distributed MySQL back-end for our customer’s IoT services. The current deployment is two (2) active/active clusters in two (2) different regions in AWS, with 3 nodes per site. With the Tungsten Clustering solution, our customer was also able to combine databases, thus simplifying their overall database deployment.
