Data Center
Technicolor, a leader in the media and entertainment space, delivers digital content services and home access devices, including set-top boxes and broadband gateways to studios, broadcasters, and network operators around the globe.
Challenge
Technicolor maintains a simulated ISP environment that is dependent on high availability of databases. However, Technicolor found that manually solving high availability-related issues is more hassle than it’s worth: the failover wasn’t automated and required trained staff to perform it manually.
Solution
Technicolor started managing and monitoring their databases with ClusterControl, which provided a consolidated view of the health of a given database and its platform. It also provided Technicolor with the ability to make their databases highly available, effectively eliminating their problems.

Why Severalnines

With ClusterControl, Technicolor found database management to be simple. Not to mention the DBAs at Technicolor were left free to focus on more important things. Technicolor started managing and monitoring their databases with as little overhead as possible, and ClusterControl effectively decreased the time to deploy their MySQL Cluster from a week to two hours.
“We decreased the time to deploy MySQL Cluster from a week to about 2 hours.”
