MySQL on Docker: Deploy a Homogeneous Galera Cluster with etcd

As you might know, we’ve been on a journey in the past months exploring how to make Galera Cluster run smoothly on Docker containers and that journey continues. Deploying Galera Cluster on Docker is tricky when using orchestration tools. Due to the nature of the scheduler in container orchestration tools and the assumption of homogenous images, the scheduler will just fire the respective containers according to the run command and leave the bootstrapping process to the container’s entrypoint logic when starting up. And you do not want to do that for Galera … This blog post discusses why and provides insight into how to deploy a homogeneous Galera Cluster with etcd.

About cloud lock-in and open source databases

If you haven’t read it yet, do check out the editorial our CEO Vinay Joosery recently published on the importance of avoiding cloud database lock-in. The cloud is no longer a question of if, but of when. Many IT leaders, however, find that one consistent barrier to their adoption of the cloud is vendor lock-in. What do you do when you are forced to stay with a provider that no longer meets your needs? And is cloud lock-in a problem? Find out what Vinay’s thoughts are on these topics.
