Update – the webinar replay is now available from http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/on-demand-webinars/display-od-630.html?clusterdb
There is a free webinar today (31st May) covering the use of MySQL Cluster in session management – register for free here. The session starts at 9:00 am Pacific, 17:00 UK, 18:00 Central European Time.
As organizations seek to enhance their users’ web experience through personalization based on historic browsing and buying behaviors, session data is becoming more critical. Larger volumes of session data need to be managed and persisted in real-time, and so session management has become increasingly performance-intensive, while also demanding very high levels of availability to ensure a seamless customer experience. In these scenarios, it makes sense to evaluate the MySQL Cluster database.
This is a practical session, demonstrating how to manage PHP session data with MySQL Cluster, and includes:
- Demands of session management
- Brief review of MySQL Cluster architecture
- Why MySQL Cluster is well placed to meet the demands from session management
- Getting a session management solution up and running with PHP and MySQL Cluster
- Performance optimization, including the latest enhancements to JOIN performance
- Case studies

On Wednesday 25 August, Johan Anderson and Mat keep will be presenting a free webinar on the best practices for deploying MySQL Cluster. If you’d like to attend then just register here.
Johan has years of MySQL Cluster professional services experience – and so if you’re interested in deploying a product ready MySQL Cluster database then this is a must-view session. Even if you can’t make it live, register anyway and you’ll be sent a link to the recording and charts afterwards.
An invaluable session for those who are about to, or who already have, deployed MySQL Cluster. Delivered by the lead MySQL Cluster professional services consultant in Oracle, this session will present best practices on deploying MySQL Cluster in order to accelerate time to service with the highest levels of availability and performance to support your most critical web and telecoms applications.
The session will cover:
- identifying suitable applications for MySQL Cluster
- comparing differences in functionality and configuration with InnoDB
- using triggers and stored procedures to implement foreign key functionality
- hardware, networking and file system selection
- dimensioning and capacity planning
- configuration best practices
- disk data deployment
- administration and monitoring
- services available to get started

The MEMORY storage engine has been widely adopted by MySQL users to provide near-instant responsiveness with use cases such as caching and web session management. As these services evolve to support more users, so the scalability and availability demands can start to exceed the capabilities of the MEMORY storage engine.
The MySQL Cluster database, which itself can be implemented as a MySQL storage engine, is a viable alternative to address these evolving web service demands. MySQL Cluster can be configured and run in the same way as the MEMORY storage engine (ie on a single host with no replication and no persistence). As web services evolve, any of these attributes can then be added in any combination to deliver higher levels of scalability, availability and database functionality, especially for those workloads which predominately access data by the primary key.
As always, the webinar is free of charge but you will need to register here.

Mat Keep and I will be presenting a Webinar on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 describing the new capabilities of MySQL Cluster 7.0. The time is designed to be Asia/Australasia-friendly but of course it’s open to everyone.
By attending this webinar, you will learn more about the next generation of MySQL Cluster, and how it enables you to deliver 99.999% database availability, with real time performance and linear scalability, while slashing TCO.
Boasting a range of breakthrough capabilities, MySQL Cluster 7.0 will enable you to stay ahead of your most demanding, mission-critical application requirements. Enhanced scalability delivers higher database performance with fewer nodes to simplify deployment and administration. Expanded platform support and interoperability delivers more choice in both the development and deployment of MySQL Cluster. Simplified cluster monitoring tools reduce DBA administration overhead and operational costs.

Following on from the announcement at the User Conference last week that MySQL Cluster 7.0 is now generally available, Mat Keep and I will present the first public webcast this Thursday. If you’d like to attend but the time isn’t convenient then you can either watch/listen to the recording after the event or wait for the next one to be announced (will be aimed at different time-zones).
What’s New in the Next Generation of MySQL Cluster?
Thursday, April 30, 2009
Whether you’re racing to introduce a new service, or trying to manage an avalanche of data in real time, your database has to be scalable, fast and highly available to meet ever-changing market conditions and stringent SLAs.
By attending this webinar, you will learn more about MySQL Cluster 7, and how it enables you to deliver 99.999% database availability, with real time performance and linear scalability, while slashing TCO.
Boasting a range of breakthrough capabilities, the MySQL Cluster 7 will enable you to stay ahead of your most demanding, mission-critical application requirements. Enhanced scalability delivers higher database performance with fewer nodes to simplify deployment and administration. Expanded platform support and interoperability delivers more choice in both the development and deployment of MySQL Cluster.
