Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to setup a MySQL Cluster infrastructure for a major educational institution. Theoretically, the deployment is a straightforward process. Of course like most IT projects, the actual roll-out process is only a minor concern.
The process of gluing together the components and making sure they stick solidly is where the challenge is more extreme.
In this article, I’m not going to discuss how to setup a MySQL Cluster. There are tons of documentations regarding this procedure already available. What I’ll be touching on is presented more as a deployment strategy, preparation and maintenance guide.
By the way, if your organization is interested in deploying a MySQL Cluster infrastructure, please note that HTNet Solutions provides this service and would be more than happy to get yours up and running.
