Severalnines: a single interface to deploy & manage them all

Now we know that 2017 is the year when open source finally grows up… at least that’s what some people are saying.

The recent security issues regarding MongoDB (it was reported that 28,000 databases were held at ransom by hackers) should not dampen open source’s success in the enterprise. Let’s remember that Microsoft has moved to validate the open source movement by joining the Linux Foundation.

As the news threads here progress then, we now see open source database management software company Severalnines launch a new release of is ClusterControl product.

The latest ClusterControl features automate multiple application environments including:

“Always on” Databases
Standard MySQL replication is still the most widely used method of replicating data between database hosts, yet Galera and Group Clustering is proven to be more reliable. With the addition of MySQL replication, ClusterControl now covers a wide range of application use cases that require high availability.

Safer NoSQL
Added support for MongoDB, larger sharded cluster deployment means ClusterControl provides a way of managing MongoDB in polyglot environments, to help enterprises circumvent vendor lock-in for users.

Enabling the DBA
Extension of Load Balancing technology via ProxySQL, HAProxy and MaxScale. This gives professionals control over how applications are accessing their databases. It also enables query caching, negating the need to gather information straight from the database.

ClusterControl aims to provide a single interface to deploy and manage open source databases so that DevOps don’t have to “cobble together” a combination of tools, utilities and scripts which need constant updates and maintenance.
