Continuent, Inc., a leading provider of commercial open source solutions for database replication and scale-out, today announced that it is accepting applications for a closed beta version for advanced replication for Oracle® with its Tungsten Replicator. Continuent Tungsten™ is an open source stack consisting of tightly integrated projects that provide database scale-out using commodity hardware. It provides database replication, group communications wrappers, performance testing tools and shared infrastructure required to build workable scale-out solutions. Tungsten also includes sophisticated cluster management based on group communications. Continuent's Tungsten stack works with any database implementation, and is available in source and binary forms.

The Continuent Tungsten for Oracle is designed to

  • Replicate between Oracle database instances (Express, SE1, SE and EE): maximize database uptime and throughput by replicating the master database to multiple slaves, distributing reads to slaves, and promoting slaves automatically during planned maintenance or when the master fails.
  • Provide heterogeneous replication: supply edge application data from core Oracle OLTP server by heterogeneous replication from an Oracle instance to and from MySQL® instances and to PostgreSQL, with high fidelity and rapid transfer rates.
  • Implement reliable, zero-downtime Oracle database migration and upgrade by applying upgrades to a replica instance and then promoting the upgraded copy to be a master. In addition to minimizing downtime, this approach provides a back-out in the event of migration problems.

"Continuent's replication for Oracle is an economical and effective for a wide range of customer problems. We encourage interested Oracle customers to contact us and apply to test it," says Robert Hodges, CTO at Continuent.

A limited beta release of Continuent Tungsten for Oracle is available by contacting sales(at) Production versions will be available in Q1 2009.
