In any clustered environment, it’s essential to maintain consistent software versions, and keeping track of all available patches for the technologies in your database infrastructure can be exhausting. ClusterControl provides reports to let you know what needs to be upgraded or patched and then helps you perform the upgrades using methods to keep you secure and compliant.

Stay up-to-date and compliant, and reduce maintenance time with a little help from ClusterControl.


Know when upgrades are available

Conduct software release availability checks for each cluster.

Choose the version for your use case

Select from numerous upgrade versions according to your app’s requirements.

We’ll help with no-downtime upgrades

We support automatic rolling upgrades for MySQL / MariaDB and you can easily run rolling upgrades for the others with quick promotion.

Full-lifecycle operations for the most advanced databases

Bring clusters under ClusterControl’s “control” for completeness via the import process. “Cluster” is any replication environment or cluster using the most popular open-source solutions.

Check database release availability online

ClusterControl offers an “upgrade node” option to check for updates and install the packages you deem correct. This is technology-dependent but critical to understanding which database solution is the one for you when planning for lifecycle updates.

Cluster-Wide Database Maintenance and Why You Need It

I need to deploy specific database configurations to align with my organization’s requirements. Can I maintain this software deployment, or will I have to manually implement these changes after a default install?

You can adjust the default template as seen here under configuration template.

What if I need to modify a server’s configuration or take a node from a cluster offline? Will I get inundated with alerts?

No problem. Just set a Scheduled Maintenance period configurable for all nodes for that specific period. You’ll be presented with the following message: “All alarms and notifications from the cluster are disabled during maintenance mode.”

I’m still using MySQL 5.7, for example, and I need to deploy this version and not the latest. Is that ok?

Yes. We don’t provide all the older versions, but we do understand that it’s hard to be on the bleeding edge versions, so we’ll always offer a previous version too. And depending on the technology, you can see 4 or 5 different versions easily deployable.
