Global MySQL Clustering with Active/Active Meshed Replication

Did you know that Tungsten Clustering supports having clusters at multiple sites world-wide with active-active replication meshing them together?

Not only that, but we support a flexible hybrid model that allows for a blended architecture using any combination of node types. So mix-and-match your highly available database layer on bare metal, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, Google Cloud, VMware, etc.

The possibilities are endless, as is the business value. This strong topology allows you to have all the benefits of high availability with local reads and writes, while spreading that data globally to be accessible in all regions. Latency is limited only by the WAN link and the speed of the target node.

This aligns perfectly with the distributed Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model where customers and data span the globe. Applications have access to ALL the data in ALL regions while having the ability to scale reads across all available slave nodes, giving you the confidence that operations will continue in the face of disruption.

Tungsten Clustering incorporates the asynchronous Tungsten Replicator to distribute events from the write master to all read slaves. The loosely-coupled nature of this method allows for resilience in the face of uncertain global network communications and speeds. The Replicator intelligently picks up where it left off in the event of a network outage. Not only that, performance is enhanced by the asynchronous nature of the replication because the master does not need to wait for any slave to acknowledge the write.

Overall, Tungsten Clustering is the most flexible, performant global database layer available today - use it underlying your SaaS offering as a strong base upon which to grow your worldwide business!
