MySQL replication, while simple and popular, may come in different shapes and flavors. Master slave or master master topologies can be configured to suit your environment.

This blog post discusses this new replication feature recently introduced in ClusterControl 1.4.
This blog post will go through new replication features in ClusterControl 1.4.0, including enhanced multi-master deployment, managing replication topology changes, automated failover and handling of replication errors.
