When it comes to that little piece of software with a $0 price tag, just take a moment and ask yourself if it really is going to be free. Yes, there are many perfectly valid use cases for using OSS software, but ensure you fully understand the risks and potential business imapact from an outage first.
Watch the replay of a webinar with our colleagues from Datavail and hosted by DBTA during which we discuss whether “free” is really good enough for business-critical MySQL database environments.
Why does the DIY approach fail to deliver vs. the Tungsten Clustering solution for geo-distributed MySQL multimaster deployments? Before we dive into the 10 reasons, note why commercially-supported enterprise software is less risky and in fact less costly.
In this blog post, we talk about how to run applications across multiple clouds (i.e. AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure) using Tungsten Clustering. You want your business-critical applications to withstand node, datacenter, availability-zone or regional failures. For SaaS apps, you also want to bring data close to your application users for faster response times and a better user experience. With cross-cloud capability, Tungsten also helps avoid lock-in to any particular cloud provider.
