Planets9s - vidaXL choses ClusterControl, scaling & sharding MongoDB & more!

Posted in:

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.

Automatic failover of MySQL Replication - New in ClusterControl 1.4

MySQL replication setups are inevitably related to failovers - what do you do when your master fails and your applications are not able to write to the database anymore? Automated failover is required if you need to quickly recover an environment to keep your database up 24x7. This blog post discusses this new replication feature recently introduced in ClusterControl 1.4.
