MySQL Cluster is an open-source distributed in-memory database. It combines linear scalability with high availability, providing in-memory real-time access with transactional consistency across partitioned and distributed datasets. It was developed to support scenarios requiring high-availability (99.999% or more) and predictable query time. Testing such a system is achieved via many interconnected pieces ranging from a large set of automated tests and manual exploratory testing. This post explores an overview of the testing methodologies we use and the current challenges we face.
Gaming, banking, telcos, and online services all are powered by fully-redundant and fault-tolerant software systems. At the heart of those systems, you can find MySQL Cluster — a distributed in-memory database having a minimum of five-9s availability (around 5 minutes a year). This open-source database provides nearly-linear …[Read more]
