Allows automatic detection of MySQL or underlying server failures
Oracle has released a new MySQL Installer for Windows, which the company says simplify and streamline the installation process for MySQL users to reduce installation time.
Oracle has completed certification of MySQL Enterprise Edition for Windows Server 2008 R2 Failover Clustering, enabling Windows users to deploy business-critical applications that demand high levels of availability.
Oracle claims it delivers up to 90% cost savings over Microsoft SQL Server with MySQL Enterprise Edition, which includes a complete suite of visual tools for modeling, development, monitoring, administration and backup of Windows-based MySQL applications.
MySQL Installer for Windows delivers an intuitive graphical interface, the ability to install all MySQL products that are required at once, an integrated update system for all MySQL products installed, and certification of MySQL Enterprise Edition with Windows Server 2008 R2 Failover.
Clustering enables users to leverage automatic detection of MySQL or underlying server failures, allowing the MySQL instance to be restarted while applications accessing the database automatically reconnect to the new "hot running" MySQL instance.
Oracle MySQL vice president of Engineering Tomas Ulin said with MySQL’s new installer for Windows and failover clustering certification, enterprise users and ISVs can improve management, reduce cost, and power business critical applications with MySQL Enterprise Edition using native Windows Clustering Services.
