OurSQL Episode 44: Elemental Replication (Tungsten, that is)

Last week's podcast, containing an overview of replication

This week we have Robert Hodges, CEO of Continuent, talking about the Tungsten replicator, which has an open source component with global transaction id's and can be used for many features, including high availability and replication to systems other than MySQL. Tungsten Replicator won Application of the Year award at the 2011 O'Reilly MySQL Conference.

The three biggest issues that Continuent is working on right now are:
- heterogeneous replication
- parallel replication
- multi-master replication (using star replication instead of a ring)

There is a #tungsten IRC channel on irc.freenode.net. Note: wolfram is Robert Hodges and datacharmer is Giuseppe Maxia.
