Sun Microsystems launches new version of MySQL Cluster

MySQL Cluster 7.0 claims to deliver millisecond response times while servicing tens of thousands of transactions per second

By CBR Staff Writer

Sun Microsystems has launched version 7.0 of MySQL Cluster, a new release of its open source database software for real-time, mission-critical applications.

According to the company, new features include significantly enhanced performance and scalability; support for popular LDAP directories; and simplified cluster back-up and maintenance.

Sun said that MySQL Cluster combines its open source database with a fault tolerant ‘shared nothing’ architecture, enabling organizations to deploy real-time mission-critical database applications reaching 99.999% availability.

MySQL Cluster 7.0 can reportedly deliver predictable, millisecond response times while servicing tens of thousands of transactions per second. Support for in-memory and disk based data, automatic data partitioning with load balancing and the ability to add nodes to a running cluster with zero downtime allows almost unlimited database scalability to handle the most unpredictable workloads, the company noted.

Karen Padir, vice president of MySQL and software infrastructure group at Sun Microsystems, said: MySQL Cluster is the only true real-time database that combines the flexibility of a high availability relational database with the low total cost of ownership of open source.

This new version boasts a range of breakthrough capabilities designed to enable users to stay ahead of their most demanding and mission-critical application requirements with faster time to market, lower cost and minimized risk. This major new release will be of great benefit for always-on applications in the telecommunications, finance and Web 2.0 industries.
