Webinar: What's new in MySQL Cluster 7.0 (APAC friendly time)

On Wednesday, August 12th there will be a webinar introducing new features in MySQL Cluster 7.0. Presenting are Andrew Morgan and Mat Keep (MySQL Cluster Product Management).
I'll be assisting the panel answering any questions you might have.  

Whether you're racing to introduce a new service, or trying to manage an avalanche of data in real time, your database has to be scalable, fast and highly available to meet ever-changing market conditions and stringent SLAs.

By attending this webinar, you will learn more about the next generation of MySQL Cluster, and how it enables you to deliver 99.999% database availability, with real time performance and linear scalability, while slashing TCO.

Boasting a range of breakthrough capabilities, MySQL Cluster 7.0 will enable you to stay ahead of your most demanding, mission-critical application requirements. Enhanced scalability delivers higher database performance with fewer nodes to simplify deployment and administration. Expanded platform support and interoperability delivers more choice in both the development and deployment of MySQL Cluster. Simplified cluster monitoring tools reduce DBA administration overhead and operational costs.
