ClusterControl for MySQL NBD Cluster

The Database Management System for MySQL Cluster

Production-ready Deployment

MySQL Cluster is a powerful technology, but production-ready setups with safe configuration defaults can be tricky to deploy. ClusterControl builds upon the experience and learnings from thousands of deployments to help get your clusters up and running faster and more securely in your environment.

360 Degree Monitoring with Anomaly Detection

ClusterControl provides at-a-glance views of the health of your clusters and individual nodes, alerting you to potential problems in the database processes as well as the underlying hardware and OS.

Meet your SLAs with Fully Managed Availability

MySQL Cluster’s native self-healing capability is further enhanced by ClusterControl’s monitoring and automatic recovery features, ensuring that 99.999% availability is seamlessly achieved.

About MySQL NBD Cluster

MySQL (NDB) Cluster is designed to deliver 99.999% availability predominantly for mission-critical applications in the web, telecommunications, government, (online) gaming and fintech industries. The benefits of a well managed MySQL Cluster environment are clear:

  • Scalability
    • Parallel main-memory database cluster
    • Scale up: Takes advantage of the latest multi-core CPU and RAM architectures
    • Scale out: Increase capacity by adding more servers, both on the storage and API layer
  • High Availability: Five 9’s availability, battle-tested in demanding telco environments
  • Performance: In-memory performance capable of handling millions of transactions per second with millisecond latency
  • Flexibility: transactional NoSQL and SQL interfaces

ClusterControl makes it easy to deploy MySQL Cluster, whether on premise or in the cloud, and automate day-to-day management tasks such as on-line scaling, upgrades, backups, reconfigurations, anomaly detection, recovery from failures, and performance monitoring.
