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

MySQL Replication: All the Severalnines Resources

We’ve just published this handy overview of all the Severalnines resources we produced during the course of this year, which are aimed at helping users to get started with MySQL Replication and/or get more out of their existing setups. From monitoring, management and through to load balancing, with information on the latest features introduced in 5.6 and 5.7 - all important aspects are covered. Do check these out and let us know if you have any questions.

Upcoming Webinar: Become a MongoDB DBA - Scaling and Sharding

In this third webinar of the ‘Become a MongoDB DBA’ series, we will focus on scaling and sharding your MongoDB setup. You’ll learn how to plan your scaling strategy up front and how to prevent ending up with unusable secondary nodes and shards. And we’ll show you how to leverage ClusterControl’s MongoDB scaling and shards management capabilities.

Become a MongoDB DBA: Sharding ins- and outs - part 1

As some of you will know, MongoDB supports sharding out of the box and it is relatively easy to set up. However, there are important considerations you need to take before sharding your data and with that in mind, we’ve started a three part miniseries about MongoDB and sharding. In this initial post, we cover the basics of sharding with MongoDB by setting up a sharded environment with related recommendations.
