OurSQL Episode 68: Scaling, or Sailing?

This week Sheeri visits the Schooner offices and inteviews Dr John Busch, the CTO, Founder, and Chairman of the Board for Schooner. Schooner is able to fully use multi-core processors and do fully synchronous replication without losing performance. The new 5.1 release offers parallel synchronous replication with automated failover between remote data centers.

Both Sheeri and Gerry have new jobs - Sheeri wrote about her change at http://palominodb.com/blog/2011/11/23/last-day-palominodb

We talk about:
- How Schooner's synchronous replication is different from MySQL Cluster's synchronous replication.
- Schooner's locking
- Data integrity
- Schooner and backups
- Schooner and monitoring
- how Schooner deals with a failed node
- when *not* to use Schooner

Schooner white papers are at http://www.schoonerinfotech.com/resources/white_papers, including:
- Achieving Five 9s with SchoonerSQL
- Top 10 Reasons why MySQL Experts Switch to SchoonerSQL
- The Short Guide to MySQL HA Options
