Continuent Enhances Usability With New “Setup and Operate” Webinar Series

Continuent, Inc.:

WHAT: Continuent, Inc., a leading provider of open source database clustering and replication solutions today announced a comprehensive, four part Tungsten University webinar series that is designed to help organizations fully leverage the Continuent Tungsten solution.

These complimentary courses will explore important details of clustering and replication that will help users understand how to get started with Continuent Tungsten.

WHY: Each Tungsten University webinar is designed to help organizations with data replication and clustering needs, and how to keep mission-critical applications and business-critical services up and running 24x7. These live virtual courses will discuss how to properly configure and manage the cluster nodes to ensure high availability, how to install the different nodes, and provide a better understanding of the internals of the Continuent Tungsten clustering and replication.

WHEN: The hour-long webinars will take place at 1:00 pm EDT/10:00 am PDT. Dates and topics include:

  • Thursday, May 15th: Setup & Operate Tungsten Replicator. Tungsten Replicator is an innovative and reliable tool that can solve your most complex replication problems. In this webinar, we will introduce Replicator installation and show you how to effectively use key features with MySQL.
  • Thursday, May 22nd: Setup & Operate Tungsten Clusters. Attendees will learn how to get from a single database server to a scalable cluster or from a brittle MySQL replication system to a transparent, manageable Continuent Tungsten cluster. Continuent will discuss the benefits of leveraging Continuent Tungsten clustering with MySQL, and walk participants through the steps necessary to implement a Continuent Tungsten cluster in Amazon EC2
  • Thursday, May 29th: Setup & Operate Real-Time Data Loading into Hadoop. Getting data into Hadoop is not difficult, but it is complex if what you want to do is load live or semi-live data into your Hadoop cluster from your MySQL databases. In this course, Continuent will explore existing methods of loading Hadoop data, review how the Hadoop replicator works, and give a live demo showing the replication of data from MySQL into Hadoop.
  • Thursday, June 5th: Setup & Operate Open Source Oracle Replication. Oracle's expensive and complex replication makes it difficult to build cost-effective applications that move data in real-time to data warehouses such as Oracle, Hadoop, Vertica and MySQL. In this session, attendees will learn how Continuent Tungsten solves problems with Oracle replication at a fraction of the cost of other solutions and with less management overhead, much like "Oracle GoldenGate without the price tag."

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right. Practices that work for small scale continuous testing may not be sufficient as the requirements grow. In his session at DevOps Summit, Marc Hornbeek, Sr. Solutions Architect of DevOps continuous test solutions at Spirent Communications, explained the best practices of continuous testing at high scale, which is rele...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
"We host and fully manage cloud data services, whether we store, the data, move the data, or run analytics on the data," stated Kamal Shannak, Senior Development Manager, Cloud Data Services, IBM, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Information technology (IT) advances are transforming the way we innovate in business, thereby disrupting the old guard and their predictable status-quo. It’s creating global market turbulence. Industries are converging, and new opportunities and threats are emerging, like never before. So, how are savvy chief information officers (CIOs) leading this transition? Back in 2015, the IBM Institute for Business Value conducted a market study that included the findings from over 1,800 CIO interviews ...
"Operations is sort of the maturation of cloud utilization and the move to the cloud," explained Steve Anderson, Product Manager for BMC’s Cloud Lifecycle Management, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
"I think that everyone recognizes that for IoT to really realize its full potential and value that it is about creating ecosystems and marketplaces and that no single vendor is able to support what is required," explained Esmeralda Swartz, VP, Marketing Enterprise and Cloud at Ericsson, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
