How to Cluster Atlassian Server Apps in your Data Center - JIRA, Confluence, Stash with MySQL Galera Cluster

Atlassian apps are widely used by development teams to facilitate software development and collaboration. For larger teams who require enterprise-grade tools, you might want to host the applications in your own data center and cluster them for high availability and performance. 

How to migrate ClusterControl to a new server

As your needs change, and you start managing more database instances or larger centralized backups with ClusterControl, you might find that your controller host is over-utilized. Or you might need to migrate your infrastructure to the cloud. If this is the case, you can migrate to another instance.

How to Deploy High Availability CloudStack/CloudPlatform with MariaDB Galera Cluster

Apache CloudStack is a turnkey orchestration platform to deliver IaaS clouds. As a cloud infrastructure scales to hundreds or thousands of servers, with production environments supporting multiple applications and services, high availability becomes a key requirement. Just as for OpenStack, it is possible to deploy the CloudStack management server in a multi-node installation. Since the management server uses a MySQL database to store the state of all its objects, the database could become a single point of failure. The CloudStack manual recommends MySQL replication with manual failover in the event of database loss. We believe there is a better way.

High Availability File Sync and Share - Deploying ownCloud with Galera Cluster for MySQL and GlusterFS

Cloud storage is hot. Dropbox, Apple iCloud, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive and Amazon Cloud Drive all offer cloud sharing platforms where you can store documents in the cloud and access them from all your devices. For enterprises who require full control, ownCloud is an open source solution that allows files to be stored on-premises and/or a backend cloud. 

Chef Cookbooks for ClusterControl - Management and Monitoring for your Database Clusters

If you are automating your infrastructure deployments with Chef, then read on. We are glad to announce the availability of a Chef cookbook for ClusterControl. This cookbook replaces previous cookbooks we released for ClusterControl and Galera Cluster. For those using Puppet, please have a look at our Puppet module for ClusterControl.

Multi-source Replication with MariaDB Galera Cluster

MariaDB 10 supports multi-source replication, and each MariaDB Galera node can have up to 64 masters connected to it. So it is possible to use a MariaDB Cluster as an aggregator for many single-instance MariaDB master servers. In this blog post, we are going to show you how to setup multi-source replication with MariaDB Galera Cluster, where one of the Galera nodes is acting as slave to 3 MariaDB masters (see diagram below). If you would like to set this up with Percona XtraDB Cluster or Galera Cluster (Codership), please read this post instead.

Multi-source Replication with Galera Cluster for MySQL

Multi-source replication means that one server can have multiple masters from which it replicates. Why multi-source? One good reason is to consolidate databases (e.g. merge your shards) for analytical reporting or as a centralized backup server. MariaDB 10 already has this feature, and MySQL 5.7 will also support it.

How to setup High Availability PrestaShop on multiple servers with MariaDB Galera Cluster

PrestaShop is a popular open source e-commerce software powering over 200,000 online stores, according to the company. We’ve seen a bit of interest into high availability PrestaShop setups, so this post will show you how to achieve that on multiple servers. Note that this setup not only caters for failures, but by load balancing traffic across multiple servers, it also allows the system to scale and handle more users.

Data Warehouse in the Cloud - How to Upload MySQL data into Amazon Redshift for reporting and analytics

The term data warehousing often brings to mind things like large complex projects, big businesses, proprietary hardware and expensive software licenses. With Hadoop came open source data analysis software that ran on commodity hardware, this helped address at least some of the cost aspects. We had previously blogged about MongoDB and MySQL to Hadoop. But setting up and maintaining a Hadoop infrastructure might still be out of reach for small businesses or small projects with limited budgets. Well, perhaps then you might want to have a look at Redshift.

Database Automation - Private DBaaS for MySQL, MariaDB and MongoDB with ClusterControl

Installing, configuring, deploying databases and performing repetitive administrative tasks are all part of a DBA’s or sysadmin’s job. This can get pretty repetitive and overwhelming if you are part of a centralized IT team, running multiple databases for your organization’s different departments, or a managed hosting provider responsible for setting up and operating databases for external clients. One way to get out of this ‘manual, repetitive task’ business is through a Database as a Service (DBaaS).
