Upcoming Webinar, 19th July, What is New in Tungsten Replicator 5.2 and Tungsten Clustering 5.2?

Continuent Tungsten 5.2 is just around the corner. This is one of our most exciting Tungsten product releases for some time!

Three new Replication Applier Targets (Kafka, Cassandra and Elasticsearch)
New improvements to our core command-line tools trepctl and thl
New foundations for our filtering services, and
Improvements to the compatibility between replication and clustering

This webinar is going be a packed session and we’ll show all the exciting stuff with more in-depth follow-up sessions in the coming weeks.

 

You’ll also learn about some more exciting changes coming in the upcoming Tungsten releases (5.2.1 and 5.3), and our major Tungsten 6.0 release due out by the end of the year.

So come and join us to get the low down on everything related to Tungsten Replicator 5.2 and Tungsten Clustering 5.2. on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 9:00 AM – 9:30 AM PDT at https://attendee.gotowebinar. com/register/ 4108437731342545667

New Continuent Webinar Wednesdays and Training Tuesdays

We are just starting to get into the swing of setting up our new training and webinar schedule.
Initially, there will be one Webinar session (typically on a Wednesday) and one training session (on a Tuesday) every week from now. We’ll be covering a variety of different topics at each.
Typically our webinars will be about products and features, comparisons to other products, mixed in with product news (new releases, new features) and individual sessions based on what is going on at Continuent and the market in general.
Our training, by comparison, is going to be a hands-on, step-by-step sequence covering all of the different areas of our product. So we’ll cover everything from the basics of how the products work, how to deploy them, typical functionality (switching, start/stop, etc), and troubleshooting.
All of the sessions are going to be recorded and we’ll produce a suitable archive page so that you can go and view the past sessions. Need a refresher on re-provisioning a node in your cluster? There’s going to be a video for it and documentation to back it up.
Our first webinar is actually next Thursday (the Wednesday rule wouldn’t be a good one without an exception) and is all about MySQL Multi-Site/Multi-Master Done Right:
In this webinar, we discuss what makes Tungsten Clustering better than other alternatives (AWS RDS, Galera, MySQL InnoDB Cluster, and XtraDBCluster), especially for geographically distributed multi-site deployments, both for disaster recovery and multi-site/multi-master needs.
If you want to attend, please go ahead and register using this link: http://go.continuent.com/n0JI04Q03EAV0RD0i000Vo4
Keep your eyes peeled for the other upcoming sessions. More details soon.

Percona Live 2017

So glad to have had a successful Percona Live last week. Continuent were Diamond Sponsors and now that we are back into a company and not part of VMware we have a little more freedom to get back into the MySQL community.

I had two primary sessions, both on the replicator/ But one was looking specifically at the replicator and how we get data into Big Data targets, the other on general problems of replicating between heterogeneous sources. After the first of those, David from Percona interviewed me to understand a bit more about what I was talking about

I was also on the keynote panel where we discussed a variety of different topics and you can see the full video of that through the link.

 

Hadoop BoF Session at OSCON

I have a BoF session next week at OSCON next week:

Migrating Data from MySQL and Oracle into Hadoop

The session is at 7pm Tuesday night – look for rooms D135 and/or D137/138.

Correction: We are now in  E144 on Tuesday with the Hadoop get together first at 7pm, and the Data Migration to follow at 8pm.

I’m actually going to be joined by Gwen Shapira from Cloudera, who has a BoF session on Hadoop next door at the same time, along with Eric Herman from Booking.com. We’ll use the opportunity to talk all things Hadoop, but particularly the ingestion of data from MySQL and other databases into the Hadoop datastore.

As always, it’d be great to meet anybody interested in Hadoop at the BoF, please come along and introduce yourselves, and hopefully I’ll see you next week!

Continuent at Hadoop Summit

I’m pleased to say that Continuent will be at the Hadoop Summit in San Jose next week (3-5 June). Sadly I will not be attending as I’m taking an exam next week, but my colleagues Robert Hodges, Eero Teerikorpi and Petri Versunen will be there to answer any questions you have about Continuent products, and, of course, Hadoop replication support built into Tungsten Replicator 3.0.

If you are at the conference, please go along and say hi to the team. And, as always, if there are any questions please let them or me know.

Cross your Fingers for Tech14, see you at OSCON

i

So I’ve submitted my talks for the Tech14 UK Oracle User Group conference which is in Liverpool this year. I’m not going to give away the topics, but you can imagine they are going to be about data translation and movement and how to get your various databases talking together.

I can also say, after having seen other submissions for talks this year (as I’m helping to judge), that the conference is shaping up to be very interesting. There’s a good spread of different topics this year, but I know from having talked to the organisers that they are looking for more submissions in the areas of Operating Systems, Engineered Systems and Development (mobile and cloud).

If you’ve got a paper, presentation, or idea for one that you think would be useful, please go ahead and submit your idea.

I’m also pleased to say that I’ll be at OSCON in Oregon in July, handling a Birds of a Feather (BOF) session on the topic of exchanging data between MySQL, Oracle and Hadoop. I’ll be there with my good friend Eric Herman from Booking.com where we’ll be providing advice, guidance, experiences, and hoping to exchange more ideas, wishes and requirements for heterogeneous environments.

It’d be great to meet you if you want to come along to either conference.

 

 

Real-Time Data Loading from MySQL to Hadoop using Tungsten Replicator 3.0 Webinar

To follow-up and describe some of the methods and techniques behind replicating into Hadoop from MySQL in real-time, and how this can be combined into your data workflow, Continuent are running a webinar with me presenting that will go over the details and provide a demo of the data replication process.

Real-Time Data Loading from MySQL to Hadoop with New Tungsten Replicator 3.0

Hadoop is an increasingly popular means of analyzing transaction data from MySQL. Up until now mechanisms for moving data between MySQL and Hadoop have been rather limited. The new Continuent Tungsten Replicator 3.0 provides enterprise-quality replication from MySQL to Hadoop. Tungsten Replicator 3.0 is 100% open source, released under a GPL V2 license, and available for download at https://code.google.com/p/tungsten-replicator/. Continuent Tungsten handles MySQL transaction types including INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE operations and can materialize binlogs as well as mirror-image data copies in Hadoop. Continuent Tungsten also has the high performance necessary to load data from busy source MySQL systems into Hadoop clusters with minimal load on source systems as well as Hadoop itself.

This webinar covers the following topics:

– How Hadoop works and why it’s useful for processing transaction data from MySQL
– Setting up Continuent Tungsten replication from MySQL to Hadoop
– Transforming MySQL data within Hadoop to enable efficient analytics
– Tuning replication to maximize performance.

You do not need to be an expert in Hadoop or MySQL to benefit from this webinar. By the end listeners will have enough background knowledge to start setting up replication between MySQL and Hadoop using Continuent Tungsten.

You can join the webinar on 27th March (Thursday), 10am PDT, 1pm EDT, or 5pm GMT by registering here: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/225780945
