- Curing Replication Deprivation with Tungsten -- A tutorial together with my colleague Ed Archibald. It covers everything you ever wanted to know about how to use parallel replication, handle multi-master/multi-source, replication to PostgreSQL/Oracle, etc. We will have a short section at the end about how to build full clusters with Tungsten Enterprise. Giuseppe Maxia is threatening to join and do some of his famous demos. Apparently doing a tutorial on replication in the morning is not enough to tire him out.
- Preparing for the Big Oops: How to Build Disaster Recovery Sites for MySQL -- Survey of methods as well as things to have in mind when building a disaster recovery site. This will cover everything I can think of, not just Tungsten.
Finally, the open source news. We have been working on getting Tungsten Replicator fully open sourced including features like parallel replication, cool multi-master capabilities, and our fast disk log. Getting there required jumping through a few hoops internally, but I'm happy to say the jumping is done. As soon as we finish a couple of merges between branches we will post a full copy of Tungsten Replicator 2.0 on our new home at code.google.com under a GPL V2 license.
It will take us a while to get used to the new bug tracker, wikis, and forums based on Google Groups, but we should be starting to settle in by 7 April when Giuseppe presents Advanced MySQL Replication for the Masses at the MySQL SFO meetup. Come visit us!
