Tungsten Clustering vs. Alternative MySQL Clustering Solutions - in the Cloud, Hybrid-Cloud, On-Prem
Why do Continuent customers say year after year that Tungsten Clustering is a better and more cost-effective MySQL HA/DR/Geo-Scale clustering and replication technology compared to alternatives - such as Amazon Aurora for MySQL, Galera Cluster and host of others?
We have put together a comprehensive comparison of MySQL clustering alternatives so you can learn about the pros and cons and make an informed decision about what’s best for your needs and environment!
In this ‘High Noon’ competitive comparison series we have each solution covered on its own web page, blog and webinar. We will start with Amazon Aurora, then challenge Galera Cluster the following week, and the rest during the next few weeks.
- Amazon Aurora
- Galera Cluster (aka MariaDB Cluster and XtraDB Cluster)
- InnoDB Cluster
- Google Cloud SQL
- Microsoft Azure Database for MySQL
- DIY: an in-house solution?
Hardly completely unbiased - but, to the best of our knowledge, yes. There is no need to hype Continuent solutions - our near 100% customer satisfaction speaks for itself.
Our goal is to lay it out as we learned from first-hand experience, cost-effectively safeguarding business-critical applications and billions of dollars in annual revenue since 2004. Also, as a commercial supporter of the open source ecosystem, we aim to be a resource so everyone may get the best out of native MySQL, MariaDB and Percona MySQL.
So, if you find anything objectionable in our comparisons, please send us a note! We are more than happy to update our comparison tables and conclusions.
