During the last few weeks I’ve been testing
and playing a bit with the new group-replication plugin available
for MySQL 5.7. Before continuing I’d like to clarify some
aspects: the plugin is only available in labs and is not yet
ready for production. The current version is 0.6. I used
5.7.9 GA running in a Vagrant 3 nodes cluster with CentOS
As an additional note, I’ve tested previous version of plugin 0.5 against 5.7.8.rc and there are some good changes, so I recommend starting with the GA version.
