Welcome to this week’s Planets9s, covering all the latest resources and technologies we create around automation and management of open source database infrastructures.
vidaXL choses ClusterControl to manage its MongoDB & MySQL databases
This week we’re happy to announce that we’re helping our customer vidaXL, a global e-commerce platform, compete with eBay and Amazon - and in doing so, keep its tills ringing. In their own words: “Our back-end is reliant on different MySQL & MongoDB databases to tackle different tasks. Using several different tools, rather than a one-stop shop, was detrimental to our productivity. Severalnines’ ClusterControl is that “one-stop shop” and we haven’t looked back. It’s an awesome solution like no other.”
Live webinar next Tuesday on scaling & sharding MongoDB
Join us on Tuesday next week, November 15th, for this webinar during which we’ll discuss how to plan your MongoDB scaling strategy up front. We’ll cover topics such as what the differences are in read and write scaling with MongoDB, read scaling considerations and read preference will be explained; and we’ll look at how sharding works in MongoDB and at how to scale and shard MongoDB using ClusterControl. “See” you there!
HA on a Shoestring Budget - Deploying a Minimal Two Node MySQL Galera Cluster
As we regularly get questions on how to set up a Galera cluster with just 2 nodes, we published this hand blog post on why and how to go about that. The general consensus is that users should have at least 3 Galera nodes to avoid network partitioning. Yet there are some valid reasons for considering a 2 node deployment, e.g., if you want to achieve database high availability but have limited budget to spend on a third database node. Or perhaps you are running Galera in a development/sandbox environment and prefer a minimal setup. Whichever the reasoning, here’s a handy quick-guide on how to go about it.
That’s it for this week! Feel free to share these resources with your colleagues and follow us in our social media channels.
Have a good end of the week,
