In a previous post, we gave you a quick overview of the MaxScale load balancer and walked through installation and configuration. We did some quick benchmarks using sysbench, a system performance benchmark that supports testing CPU, memory, IO, mutex and also MySQL performance. We will be sharing the results in this blog post.

Data security is a hot topic for many companies these days. But for those who need to adhere to security standards like PCI DSS or HIPAA, security is not an option. We showed you sometime back how to encrypt Galera replication traffic, but for a more complete solution, you’ll want to encrypt all database connections from client applications and any management/monitoring infrastructure.

Deploy an asynchronous slave to Galera Cluster for MySQL - The Easy Way

Due to its synchronous nature, Galera performance can be limited by the slowest node in the cluster. So running heavy reporting queries or making frequent backups on one node, or putting a node across a slow WAN link to a remote data center might indirectly affect cluster performance. Combining Galera and asynchronous MySQL replication in the same setup, aka Hybrid Replication, can help. A slave is loosely coupled to the cluster, and will be able to handle a heavy load without affecting the performance of the cluster. The slave can also be a live copy of the Galera cluster for disaster recovery purposes.

How to Deploy and Configure MaxScale for SQL Load Balancing with Read-Write Split

There are two models of load balancing: transport and application layer. HAProxy is a great TCP load balancer, but it’s lack of SQL awareness effectively limits its ability to address certain scaling issues in distributed database environments. In the open source world, there’s been a few SQL-aware load balancers, namely MySQL Proxy, ProxySQL and MaxScale, but they all seemed to be in beta status and unfit for production use. So we were pretty excited when the MariaDB team released a GA version of MaxScale earlier this year. In this blog, we’ll have a look at MaxScale and see how it compares with HAProxy.
