(The Hosting News) – Continuent, Inc., a leading provider of replication and clustering solutions for open source databases, today announced packaged open source support for real-time replication from MySQL™ to Oracle® using Tungsten Replicator, Continuent’s award-winning replication software. Customers can now sign up for a cost-effective engagement from a Continuent replication expert to help install, configure and test replication from MySQL to Oracle using Tungsten Replicator. Customers can also add on-going support for production deployments. Continuent support packages give customers the economics of open source backed up by the expertise of Continuent’s outstanding engineering team to get robust, 24×7 solutions rolled out efficiently.
Tungsten Replicator offers technically savvy users advanced features like parallel replication, multi-master operation, transaction filtering and heterogeneous data movement between MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle. The real-time integration provided by Tungsten Replicator moves data from MySQL to Oracle without touching existing applications or data. Since it reads changes in real-time from binlogs, Tungsten Replicator is far more efficient than traditional batch-oriented ETL approaches, which commonly require application changes. Tungsten Replicator with packaged support is also extremely cost effective compared to expensive solutions offered by traditional enterprise products, such as GoldenGate™ by Oracle or DataMirror® by IBM®.
Heterogeneous replication can be complex to set up and manage. Continuent packaged support offers the following benefits that make MySQL-to-Oracle a practical solution for all users:
- Expert technical consulting to set up replication from MySQL to Oracle
- Scripts, documentation and templates for management and monitoring
- Outstanding 24/7 technical support for questions and problems
- Quick build turnaround to fix bugs.
Continuent’s heterogeneous replication solutions are already in production with a number of customers, including Zappos and Sony Music Entertainment.
“We were a MySQL centric shop. Our customer-facing site, as well as our backend systems, was written on top of MySQL. But with the acquisition of Zappos by Amazon, who is very centric on Oracle, we had a lot of requirements to start moving real-time data from MySQL 5.1 to Oracle 11g,“ said Lee Margulin, Database Administrator at Zappos.com. “We really like Tungsten because of its straight forward, installation, monitoring of replication, quick turn around by Continuent team on new filter request, and helpful consulting service.”
“Our e-commerce system runs on Amazon cloud via RightScale® using MySQL 5.1 databases. We needed a fast and reliable solution that can replicate the data from the cloud into our Oracle 10g data mart at our datacenter for deeper analysis and reporting,” said Thomas Koshy, Director of Operations, Direct2Consumer, Sony Music Entertainment. “After our internal attempts failed, we approached Continuent with this unique request. They were very quick to understand our needs and come up with a solution in a very short timeframe. We couldn’t have moved forward on this project without the help of such a wonderful product.“
