Automated fail-over with ClusterControl™

Standard MySQL Replication is easy to set up, and is probably the most widely used mechanism to provide high availability for MySQL. Unfortunately, it is somewhat fragile. There is no support for fail-over. Slaves can easily end up with different data from the master. Diverging datasets can cause replication to stop. Crashing masters can corrupt binary logs, which means replication is not possible any more.

ClusterControl™ addresses the problems associated with master fail-over and resynchronizations, and avoids data loss by taking advantage of semi-sync replication in MySQL 5.5.

ClusterControl™ automates fail-over and reconfiguration of the replication setup to keep the Replication cluster stable and running. This online tutorial explains the MySQL Replication architecture, and how different types of failures are handled.

Users can try it now by generating their deployment package.
