Galera Cluster Comparison – Codership vs Percona vs MariaDB

We have our existing Galera Cluster highly tuned and monitored. What assurance does ClusterControl give me in this sense?

There are specific dashboards on Galera WSRep statistics, flow control and load balancer metrics, and MySQL dashboards—all under the Galera main dashboard.

For our disaster recovery strategy, we are looking into replicating between two Galera clusters. Is that covered with ClusterControl?

There’s a specific option to create a replica cluster from an existing Galera cluster, either streaming or from a previous backup. That’s in addition to taking a clone.

What backup options are available for Galera Cluster?

You can take backups from any node, primary, or just let ClusterControl auto-select the node. And that can be backed up to cloud or on-premise. It also includes encryption, compression, and even network throttling.
