Posted in:

Following the release of ClusterControl 1.2.8 with a range of cool new features, we have now also published a new ClusterControl User Guide that provides all the steps, tips & tricks to follow in order to successfully deploy, monitor, manage and scale database clusters.  

This user guide predominantly covers ClusterControl with MySQL-based clusters, namely:

  • Percona XtraDB Cluster
  • MariaDB Cluster
  • Galera Cluster for MySQL (Codership)
  • MySQL Cluster
  • MySQL Replication
  • A pool of MySQL single instances

 

New features in ClusterControl 1.2.8 include: 

  • Deployment and scaling of single-instance MySQL, MariaDB and MongoDB
  • YUM/APT repositories for ClusterControl
  • Alerts and incident tracking with PagerDuty
  • New flexible alarms/email notification system
  • Cluster-wide MySQL User Management
  • New default dashboards for MySQL/MariaDB
  • Puppet Module for ClusterControl

 

In terms of the ClusterControl User Guide itself, the following sections are new and/or updated:
