Try Failover with ClusterControl for
Top rated Docs
I want to deploy standalone as well as clustered environments. Am I forced only to deploy clusters?
Not at all. Deploy single instance clusters as well, and add nodes later if need be. Obviously, that’s not a recommended environment for failover, but once that’s understood, add nodes later.
Upon going for a HA setup, I’d also want to consider the type of replication to be used according to the database I’m deploying. Is that choice available?
Yes. Use asynchronous replication or semi-sync for your MySQL or synchronous and cluster-to-cluster replication for Galera. You choose.
Can I rebuild a replica from the console, or is that a manual task I have to take on board after losing a node?
That can be done, too, whether rebuilding a replica, adding a new node, or restoring a backup. All are available from the console.
