I recently found that there's now a lot more information on-line about the Emic Application Cluster from Emic Networks. Specifically, they have several PDFs available (overview, architecture, etc) on their Products page.
So I've begun reading them.
It's interesting to see how their technology works and how they position it against other options. In their Overview White Paper, for example, I found this line about MySQL's native replication:
MySQL's native replication approach manages only one copy of the database.
Now I know a fair amount about MySQL's native replication, and I can't figure out what that is supposed to mean--even without taking it out of context. Don't get me wrong. They do a good job of summarizing the other, less vague, downfalls of MySQL's native replication system. I'm just puzzled by what that's supposed to mean. The are numerous ways I can think to interpret it, but they're all pretty misleading.
Anyway, I'll probably write more about Emic, NDB, and Native replication later.
