For those of you who follow VMware closely, you may recall that VMware acquired Continuent in October of last year. Today’s release marks a first for Continuent’s solutions (formerly Continuent Tungsten and Tungsten Replicator) since the acquisition.

Already used by more than 100 enterprise customers who process millions of transactions daily,VMware Continuent enables enterprises running business-critical database applications to achieve commercial-grade high availability (HA), globally redundant disaster recovery (DR) and performance scaling. The new suite makes it even simpler to create MySQL database clusters in the cloud or in a private data center, to keep the data available even when systems fail.

In addition, VMware Continuent provides data replication from relational databases to high-performance NoSQL and data analytics engines to derive insight from big data for better business decisions.

The suite is available in four different flavors:

  • VMware Continuent for Clustering –Provides full MySQL clustering, including load balancing, failover, and multi-master, multi-site deployments.
  • VMware Continuent for Disaster Recovery – Enables MySQL replication to another server or site to handle disaster recovery scenarios.
  • VMware Continuent for Replication – Provides core replication between MySQL, MariaDB and Percona servers and replication to and from Oracle.
  • VMware Continuent for Analytics and Big Data – Provides replication from MySQL to various Hadoop distributions (including Pivotal HD, MapR, HortonWorks, and Cloudera), HP Vertica, and Amazon Redshift.

You can also combine the different flavors to best fit your use case including:

  • Cost-efficient business continuity, HA and DR for business-critical MySQL applications with continuous operation requirements in both on-premises and cloud environments.
  • Geographically distributed Multi-site, Multi-Master deployments servicing globally distributed users.
  • Real-time transactional data loading to data warehouses.
  • Replication from Oracle to MySQL and MySQL to Oracle for easier web deployments.

Additional, benefits offered to customers by VMware Continuent 4.0 include:

  • Zero-Downtime Maintenance– Perform database maintenance, such as schema changes, upgrades to a new version of MySQL or adding new hardware, without application or service interruptions.
  • High Availability – Replace a failed master DBMS server within seconds while maintaining continuous availability and without losing any transactions.
  • Improved Performance – Increase replication performance 5x over native[1] MySQL and increase transaction volumes using intelligent parallel methods.
  • Geo-Clustering – Implement multi-master, cross-site database clusters that span sites and are ready for immediate failover.
  • Disaster Recovery – Switch to a hot-standby disaster recovery site running a VMware Continuent cluster with a single command without losing application connectivity.
  • Affordable Oracle Replication – Replicate data from Oracle to MySQL, from MySQL to Oracle, and from Oracle to Oracle. Think “Oracle GoldenGate without the price tag!”
  • Real-Time Integration Between RDBMS and Analytics – Replicate quickly and efficiently to high-performance NoSQL and data analytics engines to derive insight from big data for better business decisions.
  • Supports off-the-shelf MySQL, MariaDB and Percona Server –No software upgrade, data migration, application or DDL changes are required.

More information on the individual VMware Continuent packages outlined above can be found here. Also, later this month we will share more details in a technical deep dive post. So, Stay tuned for more!
