Mysql.com - White Papers. As the web continues to provide one of the most cost-effective ways for businesses to market and sell their goods & services, we will continue to see the investment in web-based applications rise. An inherent characteristic about the web and one of the most common technical issues businesses face when designing and maintaining their web infrastructure, is addressing the stateless interaction between the user's browser and the web server from which the pages are requested. This stateless interaction may be excellent for viewing pages at random or clicking through hyper links, however, many web applications require knowledge of a user's interactions and current state on the website, as in online banking or ecommerce. In this paper we explore how MySQL and MySQL Cluster can be used as part of a cost-effective, high-performance, open-source solution for database-centric session management.
