Announcing ClusterControl 1.7.6: HA Stack Deployments in the Cloud with HAProxy

Forrest Lymburner

We’re excited to announce the 1.7.6 release of ClusterControl - the only database management system you’ll ever need to take control of your open source database infrastructure. 

This new edition expands our commitment to cloud integration by allowing a user to deploy a SQL database stack to the cloud provider of your choice with the HAProxy load balancer pre-configured. This makes it even simpler and faster to get a highly available deployment of the most popular open source databases into the cloud with just a couple of clicks.

In addition to this new function we also have improved our new MySQL Freeze Frame system by adding the ability to snapshot the process list before a cluster failure.

Release Highlights

Simple Cloud Deployment of HA Database Stack with Integrated HAProxy

  • Improvements to the cloud deployment GUI to allow deployment and configuration of HAProxy along with the database stack to the cloud provider of your choosing. 

MySQL Freeze Frame (BETA)

  • Now snapshots the MySQL process list before a cluster failure.

Additional Misc Improvements

  • CMON Upgrade operations are logged in a log file.
  • Many improvements and fixes to PostgreSQL Backup, Restore, and Verify Backup. 
  • A number of legacy ExtJS pages have been migrated to AngularJS.

Release Details

Cloud Deployment of HA Database Stack with Integrated HAProxy 

In ClusterControl 1.6 we introduced the ability to directly deploy a database cluster to the cloud provider of your choosing. This made the deployment of highly available database stacks simpler than it had ever been before. Now with the new release we are adding the ability to deploy an HAProxy Load Balancer right alongside the database in a complete, pre-configured full stack.

Load balancers are an essential part of traffic management and performance, and you can now deploy a pre-integrated database/load balancer stack using our easy-to-use wizard.
