Most organizations have databases to manage, and experience the headaches that come with that: managing performance, monitoring uptime, automatically recovering from failures, scaling, backups, security and disaster recovery. Organizations build and buy numerous tools and utilities for that purpose.

ClusterControl differs from the usual approach of trying to bolt together performance monitoring, automatic failover and backup management tools by combining – in one product – everything you need to deploy and operate mission-critical databases in production. It automates the entire database environment, and ultimately delivers an agile, modern and highly available data platform based on open source.

All-in-one management software - the ClusterControl features set:

Since the inception of Severalnines, we have made it our mission to provide market-leading solutions to help organisations achieve optimal efficiency and availability of their open source database infrastructures.

With ClusterControl, as it stands today, we are proud to say: mission accomplished!

Our flagship product is an integrated deployment, monitoring, and management automation system for open source databases, which provides holistic, real-time control of your database operations in an easy and intuitive experience, incorporating the best practices learned from thousands of customer deployments in a comprehensive system that helps you manage your databases safely and reliably.

Whether you’re a MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL or MongoDB user (or a combination of these), ClusterControl has you covered.

Deploying, monitoring and managing highly available open source database clusters is not a small feat and requires either just as highly specialised database administration (DBA) skills … or professional tools and systems that non-DBA users can wield in order to build and maintain such systems, though these typically come with an equally high learning curve.

The idea and concept for ClusterControl was born out of that conundrum that most organisations face when it comes to running highly available database environments.

It is the only solution on the market today that provides that intuitive, easy to use system with the full set of tools required to manage such complex database environments end-to-end, whether one is a DBA or not.

The aim of this Guide is to make the case for comprehensive open source database management and the need for cluster management software. And explains in a just as comprehensive fashion why ClusterControl is the only management system you will ever need to run highly available open source database infrastructures.
