In this talk, we will present an introduction to the Tungsten Replicator, which provides open source, database-neutral replication. The Tungsten Replicator has unique capabilities that for solving problems that go well beyond the capabilities of existing open source replication such as built-in MySQL Replication. We will discuss and illustrate with examples the following:

• Proper handling of master failover in presence of multiple slaves (for high availability)
• Master/slave replication of one, some, or all databases
• MySQL statement and row replication
• Checksums on replication events
• Table consistency check mechanism
• Heterogeneous replication (for example MySQL to Oracle and vice versa)
• Filtering and transforming replicated data
• Multi-master via bi-directional replication with conflict resolution
• Proxying support to reduce or eliminate application changes.
