Galera Cluster is widely supported by ClusterControl. With over four thousand deployments and more than sixteen thousand configurations, you can be assured that ClusterControl is more than capable of helping you manage your Galera setup.
This post gives an insight into how Galera can help to build HA websites.
This blog post shows our experimentation on running ClusterControl and Galera Cluster on Docker Swarm.
Combining Galera and asynchronous replication in the same MariaDB setup, aka Hybrid Replication, can be useful as we’ve discussed previously. This new post takes things further and shows you how to deploy an asynchronous replication slave to MariaDB Galera Cluster 10.x (with master failover), using GTID with ClusterControl.
Hybrid replication, i.e. combining Galera and asynchronous MySQL replication in the same setup, became much easier since GTID got introduced in MySQL 5.6. In this blog post, we will show you how to replicate a Galera Cluster to a MySQL server with GTID, and how to failover the replication in case the master node fails.
This video walks you through the features that ClusterControl offers for Galera Cluster and how you can use them to deploy, manage, monitor and scale your open source database environments.
ClusterControl provides advanced deployment, management, monitoring, and scaling functionality to get your Galera clusters up-and-running.
Performing RSU - Rolling Schema Upgrade - in a safe way is much more complex than just running a couple of commands. This blog post explains the RSU method for schema changes in Galera Cluster for MySQL, MariaDB Galera Cluster or Percona XtraDB Cluster.
Performing regular backups of your database cluster is imperative for high availability and disaster recovery. This blog post provides a series of best practices on how to fully restore a MySQL or MariaDB Galera Cluster from backup.
Unlike standard MySQL server and MySQL Cluster, the way to start a MySQL or MariaDB Galera Cluster is a bit different. Galera requires you to start a node in a cluster as a reference point, before the remaining nodes are able to join and form the cluster. This process is known as cluster bootstrap. Bootstrapping is an initial step to introduce a database node as primary component, before others see it as a reference point to sync up data.
