How to change AWS instance sizes for your Galera Cluster and optimize performance

Running your database cluster on AWS is a great way to adapt to changing workloads by adding/removing instances, or by scaling up/down each instance. At Severalnines, we talk much more about scale-out than scale up, but there are cases where you might want to scale up an instance instead of scaling out. 

How to Manage All Your MySQL or MariaDB Databases

According to Forrester, a DBA in a large enterprise manages between 8 and 275 databases, with the industry average being 40 databases to a DBA. Larger databases usually require extra effort around tuning, backup, recovery and upgrade. Cloud, as well as automation and management tools can help improve the number of databases managed by one DBA.

Are you going in production with Galera Cluster for MySQL? Here are 9 tips to consider before going live. These are applicable to all 3 Galera versions (Codership, Percona XtraDB Cluster and MariaDB Galera Cluster).

Clustering Moodle on Multiple Servers for High Availability and Scalability

Moodle is an open-source e-learning platform (aka Learning Management System) that is widely adopted by educational institutions to create and administer online courses. For larger student bodies and higher volumes of instruction, moodle must be robust enough to serve thousands of learners, administrators, content builders and instructors simultaneously. Availability and scalability are key requirements as moodle becomes a critical application for course providers. In this blog, we will show you how to deploy and cluster moodle/web, database and file-system components on multiple servers to achieve both high availability and scalability. 

How-to and Performance Impact of SSL-Encrypted Replication Traffic in Galera Cluster for MySQL

Deploying Galera Clusters across WAN environments might lead to concerns around data privacy and security - especially as more organisations are having to comply with national and international regulations. You would not want hackers eavesdropping or intercepting replication traffic. Encrypted replication hides what is sent between the Galera nodes, and makes sure each node is only communicating to the ones it trusts. But how expensive is encryption?

Announcing ClusterControl Support for MariaDB 10

We just wanted to make it official: Severalnines ClusterControl now supports MariaDB 10!

As most of you know will know by now, MariaDB 10 is the newest and most advanced version of the popular MariaDB relational database system. Whilst remaining application-compatible with the MySQL database, it adds many new capabilities to address the most challenging web and enterprise application use cases. Cluster deployments would be based on MariaDB Galera Cluster 10, which is a complete merge of MariaDB 10.0.12 and Galera Cluster.
