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.”

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.

In our previous post, we showed you how to shard your MongoDB databases and covered the theory behind it. But you are not done yet. How do you monitor the shards to make sure they are performing, and that data is distributed evenly between your shards? And how do you consistently backup your data across shards? This is our ninth post in the “Become a MongoDB DBA” blog series.
