Is “Free” Good Enough For Your Business-Critical MySQL Environment?


Watch the replay of this joint webinar with our partner Datavail hosted by DBTA

Business-Critical MySQL using open source is free, right? Managed MySQL cloud services don’t need DBAs, right? Think again!

MySQL can be the perfect answer for fast-growing, highly-performant and geographically-distributed database environments, but in order to function as a business-critical system with immediate response times, the ubiquitous database server needs a little help.

Watch this special webinar to learn about the limitations and hidden costs of DIY solutions for business-critical MySQL. In addition, find out why ‘managed’ database-as-a-service solutions, like AWS Aurora, may not be quite as self-managing as people would like to believe.

You’ll hear several case studies on how clients are effectively utilizing Continuent Tungsten software and Datavail services to optimize their MySQL environments.
