Effective Monitoring of your Galera Cluster for MySQL with Galera Manager

While we have documented how you might consider Monitoring a Cluster with Galera Manager, we’d also like to take you through a bit more of what is available, before our webinar this week. Please signup for a live demo from install to deployment and management.

What happens when you feel a node is getting overwhelmed?

Galera Cluster 4 for MySQL 8 is Generally Available!

Codership is proud to announce the first Generally Available (GA) release of Galera Cluster 4 for MySQL 8 and improve MySQL High Availability a great deal.
