How to Deploy a MySQL NDB Cluster Using ClusterControl


Do I need to have a MySQL Carrier Grade Edition license to deploy MySQL Cluster in ClusterControl?

No. ClusterControl deploys the community version and hence uses the management node in conjunction with all the feature richness that we’ve built in. You don’t need MCM.

Can I convert a MySQL replication setup to a MySQL NDB Cluster configuration?

This is more than just a change of replication scenario as it means converting tables from the InnoDB to NDB storage engines. We recommend exporting the data from the replication environment and importing it into a freshly deployed NDB architecture.

Can I deploy a load balancer for the SQL / API nodes, or do I have to provision this myself?

On the MySQL Cluster overview dashboard, under cluster actions, you can add a load balancer seamlessly. Additionally, you can also add more sql nodes if required.
