Oracle Releases MySQL Cluster 7.2

Oracle recently took another step forward towards the improvement of MySQL with the release of MySQL Cluster 7.2. The release comes chock full of improvements that further enhance MySQL Cluster’s core characteristics of offering low latency, high write scalability, and so-called “99.999% availability” in a cost-effective manner.

Customers seeking flexibility get that and more with MySQL Cluster 7.2, as its new Memcached API offers both SQL and NoSQL access.  This gives customers the “best of both worlds,” so to speak, allowing them to conveniently execute key value operations and complex queries all from the same database. 

Scalability has been enhanced in various ways, beginning with enhanced active/active replication that makes it easier for developers to detect and resolve conflicts across multiple clusters and eliminates the need for timestamp columns in applications.  MySQL Cluster 7.2’s multi-site clusters allow for the existence of individual data notes in different data centers with the automatic sharding of databases between them.  Additionally, data consistency and integrity among sites is maintained with quick automated failover and recovery via synchronous replication.

MySQL Cluster’s performance has become even better in version 7.2.  The product promises up to 70x higher performance when executing complex queries thanks to adaptive query localization.  This breakthrough allows more applications to leverage the power of real-time analytics across live data sets as well as other features offered under MySQL Cluster’s umbrella.

While previous versions of MySQL Cluster have been deemed user-friendly, version 7.2 takes things one step further by implemented shared user privilege tables.  These tables consolidated previously distributed tables into the data nodes to allow access from all MySQL servers, making life easier for administrators.  No longer do they need to define and maintain privileges on separate SQL nodes accessing the cluster.

The final improvement featured in MySQL Cluster 7.2 that’s worth mentioning is Oracle VM certification, which makes it an appealing choice for customers seeking a cloud deployment solution for communications and web applications.  The inclusion of Oracle VM certification adds to pre-existing MySQL Cluster certifications with Oracle Linux and Oracle Solaris.

Beyond the release of MySQL Cluster 7.2, Oracle also announced the availability of MySQL Cluster Manager 1.1.4.  Just as with MySQL Cluster 7.2, the latest release of Cluster Manager has been enhanced to make using and administering MySQL Cluster easier. 

Tomas Ulin, Oracle’s VP of MySQL engineering, commented on the latest release: “MySQL Cluster 7.2 demonstrates Oracle’s investment in further strengthening MySQL’s position as the leading Web database.  The performance and flexibility enhancements in MySQL Cluster 7.2 provide users with a solid foundation for their mission-critical Web workloads, blending the best of SQL and NoSQL technologies to reduce risk, cost and complexity.”

Monitis Adds MySQL Monitoring to its Portfolio of Solutions

Monitis, a provider of cloud-based application performance management and monitoring solutions for over 80,000 system administrators and web developers around the world, recently announced the addition of MySQL database monitoring to its portfolio.  The inclusion of MySQL monitoring not only strengthens Monitis’ position as an industry leader, but it also supplies MySQL users with the power to achieve insight on a much quicker basis when performing root cause analysis.

Monitis’ MySQL monitoring was launched in June 2011 on the free Monitor.US platform.  During the product’s eight month free trial run, hundreds of users offered feedback to help refine its code.  The end result is a comprehensive database monitoring tool that is user-friendly and boasts 246 monitoring variables and over 21 different metrics.  A list of the metrics that Monitis tracks and reports on includes database size, database usage, responsiveness/latency analysis, resource utilization, scalability, and more.  While the variety of metrics is impressive, so is the fact that their setup can be completed in a matter of minutes.  Users can also enjoy control over database monitoring from different locations worldwide.

Monitis’ founder and GM Hovhannes Avoyan commented on the addition of MySQL support: “This feature makes it easy for systems administrators and web developers to measure and monitor the performance of their php environments such as Joomla and WordPress, from multiple locations around the world. It gives them a true picture of application performance from where ever in the world the user is. Because the Monitis MySQL monitor is part of the Monitis platform it provides an unprecedented holistic view of software, database and underlying hardware, giving pressured techs the ability to quickly and easily diagnose the root cause of slow application performance.”

Ayovan also discussed the advantages offered by Monitis’ service: “Monitis’ SaaS delivery and pay as you go pricing mean it’s easy to get going and has low set up and running costs. It puts the power of MySQL monitoring in the reach of techs who otherwise wouldn’t have had the time to set up or budget to afford such a comprehensive solution.”
