I know it was officially announced Monday, but I just wanted to take a moment and let everyone know MariaDB Enterprise 1.0 is now available, in case you missed the previous article.
What does MariaDB Enterprise consist of?
“MariaDB Enterprise is composed of several components including MariaDB Manager, which is a set of management tools and an API with which you can easily provision, monitor, and manage a highly available MariaDB Galera Cluster for multi-master, synchronous replication. Galera is a powerful technology that can eliminate single points of failure for your database infrastructure, but it is relatively new and can be a challenge to configure for administrators who aren’t familiar with it.”
How does it do this?
“MariaDB Enterprise has an API layer as its foundation. The GUI tool which you use to provision, monitor and manage your cluster does all of its work through calls to the RESTful API, including provisioning cluster nodes on bare metal Linux boxes or newly instantiated virtual machines or AMIs. By packaging up the product’s capabilities in this API, we’ve both made it easy to manage Galera Clusters through our GUI, and also provided a powerful tool to simplify the automation of high availability within popular automation and configuration management frameworks.”
There is much more information about MariaDB Enterprise in the above 2 links as well, if interested.
