Liberating Your Data From MySQL: Cross-Database Replication to the Rescue!

Date: 2010-12-06
Time: 14:00–14:50
Room: Glasgow

Countless petabytes of data are sitting in MySQL database where they are perfectly useless for PostgreSQL users. Fortunately there is a solution: Tungsten Replicator can move data from MySQL to PostgreSQL, and in real time, too. In this talk we'll describe how to design cross-database replication, then set it up using Tungsten Replicator. We will cover some of the pitfalls and corner cases like SQL dialect differences, data types, character sets, and MySQL bugs that make implementation both exciting and fun. We'll conclude with a demo of database updates moving in real time between databases.
