Sika is a specialty chemicals company with a leading position in the development and production of systems and products for bonding, sealing, damping, reinforcing, and protecting in the building sector and motor vehicle industry.
Challenge
Database management plays a critical role in order to keep the Sika global network and server monitoring platform up and running, 24x7. This monitoring platform, based on Observium, allows the team to have a single entry point for monitoring server and network resources spread across subsidiaries in over 100 countries.
Solution
The Sika team worked with the Severalnines Support Team to deploy a stable three node, production-ready, MariaDB Cluster and integrated it with their F5 setup. Since implementing they have seen performance gains, high availability, all with an integrated backup solution.

Why Severalnines

“ClusterControl has reduced the time spent on database administration,” said Fernandes. “I encourage any non-database administrator (like me) to try ClusterControl as it helps a lot to manage a highly available database setup and all surrounding points, without having deep DB knowledge.”
“ClusterControl offered an out-of-the-box software with all the needed features. Since implementing we have seen performance gains, high availability, all with an integrated backup solution.”
