High availability relational database at the low TCO of open source

Sun released the next version of its MySQL Cluster 7.0. This real-time database combines the flexibility of a high availability relational database with the low TCO of open source. MySQL Cluster 7.0 provides new features and management tools.

New features include:

  • Enhanced scalability: delivers over 4x higher database performance with fewer nodes to simplify deployment and administration, Sun reports.
  • Expanded platform support and interoperability: supported platforms include Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SuSE Enterprise Linux Server, Solaris 10, and Macintosh OS X, delivering more choice in both the development and deployment of MySQL Cluster.
  • Flexible online backup: snapshots reduce DBA administration overhead and operational costs.

"We view MySQL Cluster Carrier Grade Edition as a strategic technology in our applications portfolio," commented Jeff Cortley, VP of Subscriber Data Management with Alcatel-Lucent. "With MySQL Cluster CGE 7.0 we are enabling our customers to expose the rich capabilities of their networks to drive a long-tailed innovation model. As a result, the operator can leverage the creativity and agility of the web ecosystem to deliver new compelling, personalized and targeted services to their subscribers without compromising reliability and scalability."
