Upcoming Webinar: Scaling Web Services with MySQL Cluster (IT)

On the 9th of September at 10am CET I will present in Italian a Webinar titled: "Scaling Web Services with MySQL Cluster". You can register here.

This is a summary of the english webinar series in two parts that are now available on-demand:

There are two common choices to power web applications: MySQL and memcached has become, and will remain, the foundation for many dynamic web services with proven deployments in some of the largest and most prolific names on the web. The MEMORY storage engine has been widely adopted by MySQL users to provide near-instant responsiveness with use cases such as caching and web session management.

However if you have web services that are update-intensive, demanding real-time responsiveness and continuous availability or if your services evolve to support more users, the scalability and availability demands can start to exceed the capabilities of these two approaches.

The MySQL Cluster datbase, which itself can be implemented as a MySQL storage engine, is a viable alternative to address increased web service demands. MySQL Cluster provides the familiarity and ease-of-use of the regular MySQL Server, while delivering significantly higher levels of write performance with less complexity, lower latency, higher levels of scalability and database functionality and 99.999% availability.

This webinar will discuss the use-cases for all three approaches, and provide an insight into how MySQL Cluster is enabling users to scale their update-intensive web services.
