Our webinars aim to provide useful information for MySQL users and Continuent customers and discuss topics focussed on achieving continuous operations for business-critical MySQL applications.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) are gaining popularity, and for good reasons. The Amazon Relational Database Service (AWS RDS) is getting a lot of attention, also for very good reasons. It is quite a compelling idea to have on-demand data services that do not require hiring DBA staff. The expectation is set that everything works like magic and will satisfy all of your enterprise database availability needs.
If you want to build high-volume, business-critical applications, possibly with geographically-distributed audiences, you really want to think twice about using RDS. Continuent customers have a large number deployments in AWS running MySQL on AWS EC2 instances and they choose to rely upon Tungsten Clustering to provide high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR). We also support multi-site/multi-master operations and offer true zero-downtime MySQL operations.
