Galera Cluster is the most popular high availability solution according to OpenStack survey

The results in the survey were very favourable to Galera Cluster providing high availability for MySQL and OpenStack components. Galera Cluster with MariaDB received second place, Galera with MySQL fifth place and Galera with Percona Server (Percona XtraDB Cluster) sixth place. Altogether Galera Cluster with three different MySQL variants is clearly the most popular database high availability solution for OpenStack users.

This survey report analyzes respondents who completed or updated the survey during a two-week window in September 2015, and questions represent some modifications from prior surveys in keeping with the evolution of the OpenStack platform. This survey represents a snapshot of 1,315 users and 352 deployments, provided voluntarily. The User Survey is not a market survey and does not express …

Galera Cluster beats Amazon Aurora in performance and MySQL high availability

Investigation run by Marco Tusa

CONCLUSIONS

 

MySQL/Galera was able to outperform Aurora in all tests — by execution time, number of transactions, and volumes of rows managed. Also, scaling up the Aurora instance did not have the impact I was expecting. Actually it was still not able to match the EC2 MySQL/Galera performance, with less memory and CPUs.

In light of the tests, the recommendations consider different factors to answer the question, “Which is the best tool for the job?” If HA and very low failover time are the major factors, MySQL with Galera is the right choice”.

Achieving MySQL high availability under failures and outages using Galera Cluster

Introduction

The purpose of this article is to describe how Galera Cluster multi-master replication provides high availability for MySQL beyond simply replicating all updates to multiple nodes.

High availability has multiple dimensions, such as being able to detect and tolerate failures in individual components and be able to recover quickly. We will discuss the different failure modes that can happen in a cluster and how Galera facilitates the detection and recovery from each situation.

Your load balancer and application may be governed by different timeouts and recovery mechanisms, but an operational Galera Cluster will provide a stable foundation to recover the rest of your infrastructure in case of a widespread outage.

Failures of Individual Nodes

Synchronous replication requires the participation of all nodes but a Galera Cluster will detect and automatically remove a node that has gone down within …

Support for MySQL Transaction Isolation Levels in Galera Cluster

This post was written by Seppo Jaakola, CEO of Codership.

There appears to be great misunderstanding as to what MySQL transaction isolation levels Galera CLuster actually supports and how. This blog post tries to give answer to those uncertainties.

Galera Cluster provides SNAPSHOT ISOLATION between transactions running on separate cluster nodes. Transactions running on the same node are isolated by whatever was configured as the transaction isolation level in the MySQL configuration. So, if you have configured the default REPEATABLE READ isolation, transactions issued on the same node will behave under REPEATABLE READ semantics. However, for transactions issued on separate cluster nodes, the ‘first committer wins’ rule of SNAPSHOT ISOLATION is provided, and this will fix the lost update problem that generally hurts REPEATABLE READ isolation.

Therefore, it is not safe for the application to rely on SNAPSHOT …

Can’t Be Any Faster Than That: A Real-Life Experiment with Latency in a Geo-distributed Environment

Introduction

A question frequently asked is how much latency does Galera have in geo-distributed environments. After all, snail mail can also be used for database replication, but the latency will not be acceptable.

Let’s see how Galera performs.

A Two-Datacenter Setup

We start by creating a two-node cluster using a pair of Amazon EC2 regions that are as far apart Internet-wise as it gets – Sydney and São Paulo. The underwater cable maps do not show a direct link between Australia and South America.

The ICMP round-trip time between the two regions is a steady 316 ms:


root@ip-172-31-4-77:/home/ubuntu# ping ec2-54-94-217-199.sa-east-1.compute.amazonaws.com
PING ec2-54-94-217-199.sa-east-1.compute.amazonaws.com (54.94.217.199) 56(84) bytes of data.
