We might have had one of our largest, most well attended webinars in recent times, for both EMEA and North American timezones, and we thank you for attending. We had many good questions, and we realise that this is a popular topic, so expect to get more blog posts around this. It also helps us drive the development of Galera Manager further, to know what you want (a new release, is just around the corner).
The video recording of the webinar is available and we encourage you to take a gander.
We did demo a 9-node Galera Cluster running across San Francisco, London and Singapore, and also discussed latency for local nodes, a local Galera Cluster, as well as what penalty you …[Read more]
We talk a lot about Galera Cluster for MySQL being great for High Availability, but what about Disaster Recovery (DR)? Database outages may occur when you lose a data centre due to power outages or natural disaster, so why not plan appropriately in advance?
In this webinar, we will discuss the business considerations including achieving the highest possible uptime, focus on business impact, risk mitigation, and disaster recovery itself. What scenarios are right for you: fully synchronous replication across various data centres? A mix of synchronous and asynchronous to an offsite location?
We will discuss Galera Cluster, mixed setups, the use of proxies, and also evaluate some third party solutions. We will debunk claims about how Galera Cluster might not work across data centers, tell you how to successfully do this across data centres, with performance tuning settings for all the segments. Galera 4 has also been released, making …[Read more]
Since MySQL 8.0.22 there is a mechanism in asynchronous replication that makes the receiver automatically try to re-establish an asynchronous replication connection to another sender, in case the current connection gets interrupted due to the failure of the current sender.
The post Automatic connection failover for Asynchronous Replication first appeared on dasini.net - Diary of a MySQL experts.
There is NEW ERA for Galera Cluster monitoring and management and as we just recently released Galera Manager 1.0 into the wild for everyone to deploy their Galera Clusters within an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) environment to achieve MySQL High Availability, Multi-Master MySQL, active-active clustering out of the box on Amazon and Disaster Recovery, all from the comfort of a web-based graphical user interface (GUI).
The Galera Manager is the new graphical user interface (GUI) tool for provisioning Galera Clusters on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). It allows an administrator to easily create and add nodes, without manually having to configure each node. Perhaps more useful is that Galera Manager provides charts for monitoring the host and database metrics, to ensure the proper and efficient functioning of …[Read more]
Just recently, I have been asked to look into what a Disaster Recovery site for InnoDB Cluster would look like.
If you’re reading this, then I assume you’re familiar with what MySQL InnoDB Cluster is, and how it is configured, components, etc.
Reminder: InnoDB Cluster (Group Replication, Shell & Router) in version 8.0 has had serious improvements from 5.7. Please try it out.
So, given that, and given that we want to consider how best to fulfill the need, i.e. create a DR site for our InnoDB Cluster, let’s get started.
Basically I’ll be looking at the following scenario:
InnoDB Cluster Source site with a Group Replication Disaster Recovery Site.
Now, just before we get into the nitty-gritty, here’s the scope.
Life is already hard enough, so we want as much automated as possible, so, yes, InnoDB Cluster gets some of that done, but there are other parts we will still have …[Read more]
