Almost everyone I’ve ever talked to about MySQL has some complaint or another about its replication. So when Robert Hodges, CTO of Continuent, offered to speak about the Tungsten Replicator open source project at the February 2nd SF MySQL meetup I was all for it! Now I know what you are thinking… “Not another sales pitch!” But have no fear, Robert is one hell of a smart guy and is much more of a techie than a CTO (in a good way). I remember one sales call where Robert came to CNET to talk about Continuent’s clustering software and we ended up spending more time talking databases in general than about the product.
So if you’re in the SF area on Monday Feb 2nd, 2009, stop by the CBSi building and listen in.
When: 6:30pm Monday Feb 2nd, 2009
Where: CBSi – 235 2nd Street San Francisco, CA
Description from the SF MySQL Meetup calendar:
Tungsten Replicator is a new open source project for database replication. It offers MySQL to Oracle replication, robust handling of master failures, extremely flexible topologies, and an extensible architecture that allows you to add your own replication features if you don’t find them there already. I’ll describe why MySQL needs more replication, show the product architecture, describe some of the problems it solves, and demonstrate the replicator in action. Finally, we’ll play “stump the chump” where you can present your replication problem and I’ll describe how our replicator handles it. Whether you have a tricky replication problem or are just curious about the subject, please join us. This is a very technical presentation that should be of interest to all true MySQL fans.
