News Facts

Demonstrating its investment in MySQL development, Oracle today announced the latest release of MySQL Cluster.
MySQL Cluster 7.1 introduces MySQL Cluster Manager, a new solution that simplifies and automates the management of the MySQL Cluster database and enables administrators to respond quickly to changing market conditions and stringent service level agreements.
In addition, the new MySQL Cluster Connector for Java helps accelerate development cycles and time to market, and enables higher throughput and lower latency for Java-based services.
MySQL Cluster is a leading “real-time” relational database with no single point of failure. By providing very high availability and predictable millisecond response times, MySQL Cluster allows telecom and embedded users to meet their most demanding real-time application requirements.

Higher Availability and Simplified Management

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, MySQL Cluster 7.1 delivers enhanced database scalability to handle unpredictable workloads.
MySQL Cluster 7.1 includes the following key features:
MySQL Cluster Manager – allows users to easily manage a cluster of many nodes. Automated management also reduces the risk of database downtime resulting from manual configuration errors.
NDBINFO – presents real-time status and usage statistics from the MySQL Cluster Data Nodes as SQL tables and views, providing developers and administrators a simple and consistent means of proactively monitoring and optimizing database performance and availability.
MySQL Cluster Connector for Java – allows developers to write Java applications that can use JDBC or JPA to communicate directly with MySQL Cluster, making it easier to take advantage of the database’s high performance and availability features.
