There are a number of different methods in which Tungsten Replicator can be configured, review Section 2.8.2, “Understanding Deployment Models” for full details of the differences between each deployment style. The following sections explain the different topology styles that can be deployed
A simple Master/Slave topology replicating from one source host to one target.
A more advanced topology allowing bi-direcitonal replication between two or more hosts.
This topology can only be configured between MySQL hosts
A more advanced Master/Slave topology replicating from a single source host into multiple targets.
Each target can be of a different type, and advanced filtering can elevate this topology into a highly advanced solution.
The reverse of Fan-Out, this topology allows multiple source hosts to be replicated into a single target.
Advanced filtering within the replicator will allow flexibility to, for exmaple, remap schemas
Configuring the replicator as a Cluster-Slave will allow you to leverage THL generated within an existing Tungsten Cluster to be replicated to a standalone target
