Hi there. I'm new to replication in general... so i apologize if my question seems a little silly.
I would like to know if there is a way to keep several databases in sync...
I read up a little about designating a master database and having as many slaves configured to this master.
However, what I'd like to do is also track any changes the slaves make and replicate back to the master. And from the sounds of it, there are at least 8 different instances of this database.
Unfortunately, my client is indicating that they cannot set up one database and have all the remote sites write to one database. They want each site with a separate database... but this database must be kept in sync between sites.
Is this possible?
As an aside, is it possible in mysql to have two databases, both replicating eachother?
Is this what In Memory data grids resolve? are there any open source imdg solutions you know of?
