Reference Architecture for Cloud enabled Galera & MySQL
This White paper is for enterprise solution architects, Database & Big Data (Infrastructure) architects, and Hadoop Administrators who manage infrastructure operations on Big Data platforms. MySQL Galera is a shared-nothing architecture as it uses certification-based approach to achieve synchronous replication. Based on open source, Galera provides significant improvements in high-availability, transparency, and scalability for the MySQL cluster management.
What is Galera Cluster ?
MySQL Galera cluster is a multi-master that is on top of synchronous replication. In Galera, the certiﬁcation-based replication is used to achieve synchronous replication along with transactions ordering techniques and group communication.
