As you might imagine, the recent news about Sun and MySQL has led to increased interest in MySQL solutions on Solaris. One key element of any database deployment is high availability, so here in Solaris Cluster we're fielding a wave of queries about our HA offerings for MySQL.
The first question is often "Does Solaris Cluster have an agent for MySQL?" and the answer is Yes, we do. You can read the documentation for this agent here and find a detailed blog on how to deploy MySQL in Solaris Cluster environments
The next question is often about open source, and again we respond in the affirmative, inviting people to browse the source code for the agent, and participate in its evolution
And these past few weeks, many people have been wondering if we'll be at the MySQL Conference and Expo in Santa Clara CA next week, and the answer is yes, si, oui, jawohl, etc.!
You can learn more about the conference here and you can learn more about Solaris Cluster at the conference by visiting one of the booths we'll be at to talk about Solaris Cluster with MySQL (don't miss the demo!), and also Ritu Kamboj's talk on Wednesday the 16th at 2:00 p.m. -- "Best Practices for Deploying MySQL on the Solaris Platform."
We hope to see you there!
Senior Engineering Manager, Solaris Cluster
