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

Check out the new NinesControl for MySQL & MongoDB in the cloud

This week we were happy to announce NinesControl, which is taking its first steps to offer quick and easy automation and management of databases for the cloud to developers and admins of all skill levels. Built on the capabilities of ClusterControl, NinesControl is a database management cloud service, with no need to install anything. It enables users to uniformly and transparently deploy and manage polyglot databases on any cloud, with no vendor lock-in. If you haven’t seen NinesControl yet, do check it out!

Art also demonstrates how to leverage ClusterControl’s MongoDB scaling capabilities and have ClusterControl manage your shards.
