We’re delighted to share the news that our friends at MariaDB today announced the availability of MariaDB Galera Cluster!
We’ve been talking a good bit about MariaDB in the past few months and it’s great to see the MariaDB & Codership partnership result in today’s announcement.
As can be seen in the official MariaDB blog that’s just been published, this is a straight merge of MariaDB 5.5.25 with Galera Cluster from Codership. It is an alpha release and thus the advice from the MariaDB team is that it should not be used in production environments. Using the Galera replication methodology, users get synchronous, multi-master replication with guaranteed data consistency. This solution provides both read & write scalability!
Congratulations to both MariaDB & Codership for this new contribution to the MySQL eco-system!
