Migrating to the cloud with zero downtime is a problem that companies running mission-critical applications have to solve, but not on their own. If you’re running a MySQL or MariaDB database it can be easy. Many of our customers have done this successfully, simplifying their overall Cloud migration process by making the database layer easy to move. It’s one less thing to worry about.
You’ve seen the recent news about AWS outages; enterprises have to think about where their physical AWS data centers are and treat them as a single point of failure. As such, enterprises running business-critical and mission-critical applications are accounting for geography of public cloud resources in their business-continuity plans. Learn about a solution for continuous operations for your MySQL database that’s a step above traditional MySQL Disaster Recovery (DR).
In this blog post we will explore the procedure for getting an email notification every time a file is uploaded to an AWS S3 bucket. Instead of having to poll the AWS S3 bucket manually for new uploads, we wanted a way to be notified by email every time a file landed. The solution was a combination of an SNS Topic used by an SNS Subscription, and called by an S3 bucket Event notification.
A VPC peering connection is a networking connection between two VPCs that enables you to route traffic between them using private IP addresses. Instances in either VPC can communicate with each other as if they are within the same network. This blog provides step-by-step instructions on how to set up VPC networking between regions (also known as inter-region VPC peering connections).
As we are all being pushed to the limit to meet unprecedented demands online, the pandemic shined a light on many new frontiers and achievements in technology. This blog is about continuous MySQL database operations when you have a global user base, particularly the VMworld 2021 Global Multi-Cloud conference.
MySQL High Availability (HA) is typically what architects and technologists look for in building business-critical and mission-critical applications, and they aspire to measure MySQL uptime in 4 or preferably more “nines.” This blog explores the modern world of continuous MySQL operations - cross-region, global, hybrid-cloud, and multi-cloud - and why you might need a different approach.
This is the next in our ‘High Noon’ comparison series in which we look at the main solutions for MySQL high availability, disaster recovery and geographic distribution. Here we focus on highly available, geo-scale, multi-region MySQL for mission-critical sites and apps with Microsoft Azure Database for MySQL as compared to native MySQL, MariaDB clusters with Continuent Tungsten in the cloud, hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud or on-premises.
This is the next blog in our ‘High Noon’ comparison series in which we look at the main solutions for MySQL high availability, disaster recovery and geographic distribution. Here we focus on highly available, geo-scale, multi-region MySQL for mission-critical sites and apps with Google Cloud (GCP) for MySQL as compared to MySQL, MariaDB clusters with Continuent Tungsten, the only complete, fully-integrated clustering solution for MySQL - on-premises, in the cloud, hybrid-cloud or multi-cloud.
This is the first blog in our ‘High Noon’ comparison series in which we look at the alternative solutions for MySQL high availability, disaster recovery and geographic-distribution. We focus on highly available, geo-scale, multi-region MySQL for business critical applications as directly compared to Amazon Aurora. Tungsten Clustering makes it easy to deploy and manage highly available MySQL clusters with any version of MySQL, MariaDB, and Percona Server for MySQL on-premises, in the cloud, hybrid-cloud or multi-cloud.
Why do Continuent customers say year after year that Tungsten Clustering is a better MySQL HA/DR/Geo-Scale clustering and replication technology - in the cloud, on-prem, hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud - compared to alternatives such as Amazon Aurora for MySQL, Galera Cluster and host of others? We have put together a comprehensive comparison so you can learn about the pros and cons of various MySQL solutions for business-critical and mission-critical apps - and make an informed decision about what’s best for your needs and environment!
