Building a low cost virtualized computing grid for scale

Presented by

Bradley D. Brown, co-founder and CTO of TUSC

About this talk

Have you considered using Oracle Express (the free Oracle DB version) to reduce costs? Does the 4GB database size limit cause issues for you? Are you considering creating a low cost virtualized computing grid? Your own database cloud? Perhaps using MySQL or PostGRES? Do you already have your "master" database that you would like to replicate? In this presentation, you'll learn how IntelliReal (this is a case study of stores their "master" database in an Oracle Standard Edition One database instance and uses a MySQL grid to provide a low-cost scalable solution to meet their needs. The Oracle database is about 4TB. The grid effectively stores a materialized view of the key data from the Oracle database, which is roughly 400Gb of data, into a series of physically partitioned MySQL databases. A computing cloud of sorts. The data is US residential property data. Data is partitioned by US counties - about 1000 databases (or schemas in MySQL). The grid started as a 5 wide grid and 2 deep (for load balancing), but is currently 1 wide and 10 deep. This architecture for a virtualized computing grid will be discussed in detail.
