Using GCache encryption in Galera Cluster Enterprise Edition (EE)

MySQL has InnoDB data encryption, and Galera Cluster has supported it since it appeared in the main server. The one thing that was not covered was the encryption of the Galera Cache (the galera.cache file).

Here is a simple extract from the binlog.000001 files.

strings binlog.* |grep Custom |wc -l
10000
strings galera.cache |grep Custom |wc -l
10000
strings galera.cache|tail -10

You need to edit your /etc/my.cnf to include:

early-plugin-load=keyring_file.so
keyring_file_data=/var/lib/mysql-keyring/keyring

Note that in this example we are using the keyring_file plugin, which stores keyring data in a file on the local server host. This is not intended for regulatory compliance. You need to use a key management server that protects encryption keys in key vaults or hardware …

Adding a node to your existing Galera Cluster

A common question we get is: can I add a node to my Galera Cluster without restarting the entire cluster? The simple answer is YES.

A lot worry about the fact that you do list servers that are part of the cluster within your my.cnf, and this file is not reloadable in a dynamic fashion. Fret not, though, because as long as your my.cnf has one active cluster member (the DONOR), you can have it be the JOINER.

If for example, you have 3 nodes: galera1: 159.223.105.21 galera2: 137.184.78.182 galera3: 137.184.65.171

The my.cnf line for wsrep_address should read as follows:

wsrep_cluster_address="gcomm://159.223.105.21,137.184.78.182,137.184.65.171"

It is then trivial for you to have your fourth server (say, galera4: 161.35.120.111), have a my.cnf that reads as follows:

wsrep_cluster_address="gcomm://159.223.105.21,137.184.78.182,137.184.65.171,161.35.120.111"

Now, …

Deploying a Galera Cluster with Galera Manager on AWS EC2

In the event that you are not planning to deploy Galera Cluster using Galera Manager on your own on-premise hosts, it is worth noting that Galera Manager supports the ability to automatically deploy a 3-node Galera Cluster in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) automatically, just by suppling your API key information. Naturally, we also made a video on a step-by-step video on how to install Galera Cluster in an Amazon EC2 using Galera Manager.

It is worth noting that you can use the free tier to deploy your Galera Cluster with Galera Manager for testing purposes.

Deploying a Galera Cluster with Galera Manager on your own on-premise hosts

Our most favoured method of deploying Galera Clusters via Galera Manager happen to be the on-premise option, which is favoured by our customers and users. We have always been under the impression that the cloud deployments (AWS, DigitalOcean) would have more pull, but majority do prefer an on-premise installation. We have also made an appropriate video: A step-by-step video on how to install Galera Cluster on premises using Galera Manager.

So to start, we will deploy 3 hosts, running CentOS 7. These are just deployed with the base operating system (OS). And of course, you need another host to run your Galera Manager, so in total we have four (4) hosts. Obtain Galera Manager via filling in the form.

Once you have the …

Upgrading from Galera Cluster to Galera Cluster Enterprise Edition (EE)

We recently covered Upgrading your Galera Cluster from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0. We’ve also had questions on how the upgrade path from our usual Galera Cluster “community” edition to the Galera Cluster Enterprise Edition (EE), which includes many new features, like XA transaction support, arm64 support or GCache encryption.

First off, let’s start by installing a Galera Cluster on CentOS 7. The reason we have picked this distribution? Let’s edit the /etc/yum.repos.d/galera.repo and add:

[galera4]
name = Galera
baseurl = https://releases.galeracluster.com/galera-4/centos/7/x86_64
gpgkey = https://releases.galeracluster.com/GPG-KEY-galeracluster.com
gpgcheck = 1

[mysql-wsrep8]
name = MySQL-wsrep
baseurl = https://releases.galeracluster.com/mysql-wsrep-8.0/centos/7/x86_64
