MySQL Master High Availability and Failover: more thoughts

Some months ago, Shlomi Noach published a series about Service Discovery.  In his posts, Shlomi describes many ways for an application to find the master.  He also gives detail on how these solutions cope with failover to a slave, including their integration with Orchestrator.

This is a great series, and I recommend its reading for everybody implementing master failover, with or without

Tungsten Clustering versus AWS RDS/MySQL

Enterprises require high availability for their business-critical applications. Even the smallest unplanned outage or even a planned maintenance operation can cause lost sales, productivity, and erode customer confidence. Additionally, updating and retrieving data needs to be robust to keep up with user demand.

Let’s take a look at how Tungsten Clustering helps enterprises keep their data available and globally scalable, and compare it to Amazon’s RDS running MySQL (RDS/MySQL).

Replicas and Failover What does RDS do?

Having multiple copies of a database is ideal for high availability. RDS/MySQL approaches this with “Multi-AZ” deployments. The term “Multi-AZ” here is a bit confusing, as enabling this simply means a single “failover replica” will be created in a different availability zone from the primary database instance. …

Multi-Cloud SaaS Applications: Speed + Availability = Success!

In this blog post, we talk about how to run applications across multiple clouds (i.e. AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure) using Continuent Clustering. You want your business-critical applications to withstand node, datacenter, availability-zone or regional failures. For SaaS apps, you also want to bring data close to your application users for faster response times and a better user experience. With cross-cloud capability, Continuent also helps avoid lock-in to any particular cloud provider.

The key to success for the database layer is to be available and respond rapidly.

From both a business and operational perspective, spreading the application across cloud environments from different vendors provides significant protection against vendor-specific outages and vendor lock-in. Running on multiple platforms provides greater …

Mastering Continuent Clustering Series: Tuning for High-Latency Links

What if I want the cluster to be less sensitive to network, especially WAN latency?

Continuent Clustering supports having clusters at multiple sites with active-active replication meshing them together.

This is extraordinarily powerful, yet at times high network latency can make it harder for messaging between the sites to arrive in a timely manner.

This is evidenced by seeing the following in the Manager log files named tmsvc.log:

2018/07/08 16:51:05 | db3 |  INFO [Rule_0604$u58$_DETECT_UNREACHABLE_REMOTE_SERVICE1555959201] - CONSEQUENCE: [Sun Jul 08 16:51:04 UTC 2018] CLUSTER global/omega(state=UNREACHABLE)

The delta is 37 seconds in the above example between state=UNREACHABLE and UNREACHABLE => ONLINE

Business continuity with geographically distributed multi-master MySQL clusters

Global data access can greatly expand the reach of your business. Continuent's multi-site multi-master (MSMM) solutions enable applications to accept write traffic in multiple locations across on-premises and vCloud Air. This includes the following important real-world use cases:

Improve performance for globally distributed users registering hardware devices by permitting updates on the

MySQL High Availability and Disaster Recovery

Users seeking high availability, disaster recovery and zero downtime maintenance operation for business-critical MySQL applications face confusing choices. Is multi-master or master/slave clustering better? What about synchronous versus asynchronous replication? Using a plain vanilla, stock MySQL or a modified version of it? Which of these choices are right for data-driven businesses that

mysqldump or Percona XtraBackup? Backup Strategies for MySQL Galera Cluster

September 25, 2014 By Severalnines

Coming up with a backup strategy that does not affect database performance or lock your tables can be tricky. How do you backup your production database cluster without affecting your applications? Should you use mysqldump or Percona Xtrabackup? When should you use incremental backups? Where do you store the backups? In this blog post, we will cover some of the common backup methods for Galera Cluster for MySQL/MariaDB, and how you can get the most out of these. 

 

Backup Method

 

There are various ways to backup your Galera Cluster data:

  • xtrabackup (full physical backup)
  • xtrabackup (incremental physical backup)
  • mysqldump (logical backup)
  • binary logging 
  • replication slave

 

Xtrabackup (full backup)

Xtrabackup is an open-source MySQL hot …
