Schooner Information Technology, Inc. has begun to ship SchoonerSQL, a full build of the widely used MySQL database and its standard InnoDB storage engine, with enhancements that provide 99.999 percent service availability with full data integrity, immediate and automated failover, and recovery across a local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Additional improvements include unlimited scaling with strong performance and high data consistency as well as simplified cluster administration.

SchoonerSQL addresses the needs of database administrators and data center managers who must deliver minimal downtime, ensure maximum service availability for their online transaction processing (OLTP) applications, and want the simplicity and low cost of a MySQL-based offering. Customers in a wide range of industries rely on SchoonerSQL for:

  • Service availability that includes completely automatic and immediate failoverp

  • Data integrity, with cluster-wide data consistency to eliminate data loss and slave lag

  • Strong query and update performance and scalability

  • Simplified cluster management

  • Integrated high-performance WAN replication and disaster recovery

Schooner’s parallel multi-threaded synchronous and asynchronous replication architecture improves performance and reliability over traditional MySQL-based replication schemes. SchoonerSQL improves throughput and eliminates both slave lag and the need to throttle back the master server to allow slave servers to stay current with the master. By substantially increasing throughput, SchoonerSQL reduces spending on database servers and the power, pipe, and people to run them.

SchoonerSQL also delivers immediate and automated failover and recovery both within a LAN and between data centers connected by a WAN. SchoonerSQL allows customers to slash their downtime, whether from scheduled maintenance, unplanned hardware or software failures, or a disaster that takes down an entire data center, eliminating the tedious and error-prone manual processes traditionally required for failover and recovery.

SchoonerSQL is supported on all widely-used x86 Red Hat/CentOS servers from Dell, HP, IBM, and may be downloaded for a free trial. More information is available at www.schoonerinfotech.com/free_trials.
