ClusterControl for MySQL Replication

MySQL replication made easy and secure with point-and click interfaces

The All-inclusive Open Source Database Management System

MySQL replication is the native way of bringing high-availability to a MySQL database infrastructure. It’s simple for a DBA to set-up, but building the stack and maintaining the environment can be a challenge. ClusterControl makes MySQL replication easy and secure with point-and click interfaces and no need to have specialized knowledge about the technology or multiple tools. It covers all aspects one might expect for a production-ready replication setup.

Often times MySQL Replication deployments cause issues which take time to troubleshoot; ClusterControl provides advanced deployment, management, monitoring, and scaling functionality to keep your replication environments up-and-running using proven methodologies that you can depend on to work.

Ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting MySQL Replication is easier with ClusterControl because it removes the complexity that is often introduced when using multiple external tools and ClusterControl lets you monitor and manage all your deployments from a single interface.

ClusterControl Features for MySQL Users

Dependable Deployments

Replication is easy to setup, but can be time-consuming when it breaks. ClusterControl comes with all the features you need to ensure your database infrastructure always performs at peak proficiency, removing the need to to cobble together multiple tools.

Proxy Integration

ClusterControl makes it easy to build a proxy layer over your replication setup; it shields applications from replication topology changes, server failures and changed writable masters. With just a couple of clicks you can improve the availability of your stack.

Failover & Backups

ClusterControl includes advanced support for failure detection and handling; it also allows you to deploy different proxies to integrate them with your HA stack. With ClusterControl you can schedule logical or physical backups and easily restore backups to bootstrap nodes or systems.

Simple Scaling

Easily add and remove nodes and resize instances with ClusterControl. When you need to achieve scalability, ClusterControl makes it possible to throttle the number of connections to the database instances, so the databases are not overloaded.

Database Administrator (DBA)

MySQL replication is common knowledge for DBAs worldwide, but maintaining those high availability setups can sometimes be a challenge. ClusterControl gives you all the tools you need to ensure your database infrastructure performs at peak proficiency.

ClusterControl provides advanced monitoring and reporting features to let you easily keep a close eye on the performance of your MySQL replication setups.

Database Administrator Benefits

  • Provisioning slaves is a simple task, but the testing and maintenance needed can be time consuming. With ClusterControl it’s “click-and-done”.
  • ClusterControl lets you quickly run tests on live data to ensure you are better prepared.
  • You don’t need to use multiple tools to achieve automatic failover if something goes wrong with your MySQL replication setups; ClusterControl takes care of that for you

System Administrator

As a system administrator, chances are you’re often asked to take on the role of the DBA. ClusterControl is your DBA sidekick; and has you and your database administration needs covered. ClusterControl makes MySQL replication easy and secure with point-and click interfaces.

With ClusterControl, you can manage your organisation’s open source databases the same stable and secure way a seasoned database administrator would. Most SysAdmins know MySQL, but it may not be your core expertise. ClusterControl embodies that expertise and helps you overcome any database management challenges you may encounter.

SysAdmin Benefits

  • Often times deployments cause issues which take time to troubleshoot; ClusterControl makes it easy to deploy quickly and securely.
  • Decades of open source database experience and best practices are built into ClusterControl, so that you can rely on the fact that your organisation’s databases will always be secure and run smoothly.
  • Ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting MySQL replication is easier with ClusterControl because it removes the complexity that is often introduced when using multiple external tools.

Developer

ClusterControl can help you cover lost ground when there are no DBAs and SysAdmins managing your database infrastructure. It has comparable functionality to other widely used tools favoured by developers, but in an all-inclusive system.

There are many different ways to achieve HA through MySQL replication and ClusterControl offers multiple solutions to achieve your development goals; helping you become more knowledgeable in these setups.

Developer Benefits

  • Developers are often the ones responsible for deploying replication setups whenever highly available environments are required; ClusterControl makes this easy.
  • SQL is often listed among the most dreaded technologies for developers; ClusterControl demystifies MySQL and makes it easy to deploy and manage your environments.

Solutions Architect

As a solutions architect, one of your primary concerns is the availability of data at all times. With ClusterControl, failure handling and master promotions happen automatically to make sure that the replication setup is resilient to failures or topology changes. You care about the performance of your infrastructure. ClusterControl helps you get the most out of your replication setup, and gives you detailed performance metrics in real time.

When you need to achieve scalability, ClusterControl makes it possible to throttle the number of connections to the database instances, so the databases are not overloaded. It’s also possible to scale out reads with more slaves, without the applications being aware of this.

Solutions Architect Benefits

  • ClusterControl’s advanced query caching on the proxy level can help boost application performance and also simplify the overall architecture by removing the need for specialized caching servers like memcached and redis.
  • ClusterControl provides a variety of integrations and plugins to enable connection and compatibility with notification, monitoring, and a variety of other systems and tools.
  • ClusterControl helps you plan for capacity by letting you understand historical as well as current performance levels, so you can plan for future scaling and upgrades.
