EnterpriseDB Webinar: Building a Highly Available Infrastructure

A new Webinar about EnterpriseDB (not from me). Building a Highly Available Infrastructure for Your Database and Application.

It's next wednesday, September 26, 2007 at 9am and 2pm Eastern. I guess it repeats. It's an hour long.

Here's the blurb from the email I received:

What does an hour of downtime cost you? Analysts report that just one hour of downtime can cost businesses millions of dollars, and some never recover.

What applications are mission critical today? In the past, only those applications that controlled finances were considered mission-critical. But, today, almost every application, from your e-commerce website to your email and calendaring system, are considered mission-critical and candidates for high-availability planning.

While everyone agrees that downtime is caused by three major areas - people, processes and technology - every effort is being made to ensure that technology is never the cause.

Join EnterpriseDB and Continuent experts as they show you how to implement a highly available environment for your database infrastructure. Topics include:

  • Online Operations
  • Point-in-Time Recovery
  • Back Up and Failover Processing
  • Data Storage Access

You will also discover how Continuent uni/cluster technology can remove all single points of failure in your infrastructure by using a synchronous, multi-master approach to database replication. Key uni/cluster technology capabilities are:

  • "Always On" database and application services with instant, automatic and transparent failover
  • Automatic load balancing - use any database server to process user queries
  • Near-linear scaling of application users and load

Questions and requests for additional information will be addressed to help you with your installation.

I plan to register and check it out. I'll post the highlights afterwards.
