MaxxCAT has developed a breakthrough database technology: dbWARE (Write Anywhere, Read Everywhere). This guide breaks down the advantages of using dbWARE instead of other standard clustering solutions. dbWARE is extremely fast and efficient providing a simple solution to a complex synchronization and reliability problem. It also provides performance benchmarks for dbWARE in a mySQL environment. Showing the speeds of dbWARE running over WAN being faster in some cases that mySQL running over internal LANS. Just by starting with 3 geographically diverse nodes, you can achieve high performance and high availability database solutions that can continue to operate during network failures and survive disaasters. The dbWARE database replication appliance is a high end database designed to boost performance of your apps and provide auto failover, failback, data synchronization and more.
