This video walks you through nine tips you should consider when deploying and managing a MySQL Replication environment and how utilizing ClusterControl can help make deploying, managing, monitoring, and scaling MySQL easy.

Though MySQL replication is one of the easier HA deployments to set up, it is also easy to break and time-consuming to troubleshoot.  ClusterControl’s point-and-click interface lets you securely automate deployment and scaling of MySQL replication setups to get production-ready environments up and running in a very short time. No need for guesswork, or time-consuming experimentation with different open source utilities.

ClusterControl and MySQL Replication

ClusterControl provides advanced deployment, management, monitoring, and scaling functionality to get your MySQL instances up-and-running using proven methodologies that you can depend on to work.  ClusterControl makes MySQL replication easy and secure with point-and click interfaces and no need to have specialized knowledge about the technology or multiple tools. It covers all aspects one might expect for a production-ready replication setup.

Ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting MySQL Replication is easier with ClusterControl because it removes the complexity that is often introduced when using multiple external tools and ClusterControl lets you monitor all your MySQL deployments from a single interface.
