Welcome to this week’s Planets9s, covering all the latest resources and technologies we create around automation and management of open source database infrastructures.

Download our new whitepaper: Database Sharding with MySQL Fabric

Database systems with large data sets or high throughput applications can challenge the capacity of a single database server, and sharding is a way to address that. Spreading your database across multiple servers sounds good, but how does this work in practice?

Or using our agentless management and automation console, ClusterControl, which supports MySQL (Oracle and Percona server), MariaDB, MongoDB (MongoDB inc. and Percona), and PostgreSQL.
