Building Databases for Multi-Tenant Applications 


Building Databases for Multi-Tenant Applications - Large scale applications require sharding to keep up with increased traffic.  The simplest and most flexible way to shard is at the schema level.  This talk will explain the basics of Tungsten Replicator, installing bi-directional replication between database servers, options for global deployment and best practices when you start sharding.  For more information on Tungsen Replicator, visit


Jeff Mace, Director of Professional Services at Continuent, has 10 years of experience developing internet applications and managing database servers. He joined Continuent in June 2010 after having a chance to work with Tungsten and the Continuent team. Jeff started his career using DB2 at Penn State University. Since that time he has built event management software at AetherQuest Solutions and participated on eCommerce and CMS projects as an independent contractor.

    Yes. As of Drupal 7 there are some steps that can be taken to utilize multiple database servers. I can go into more detail here if you can't make it to the meetup.
