Oracle announced the new MySQL Fabric technology as an open-source tool that is available in the MySQL Utilities 1.4 release.
“If you want to build a high-availability MySQL database, you typically have to setup replication, manage the failover and write some scripts to manage the failover,” Tomas Ulin, vice president, MySQL Engineering explained toDatabaseJournal. “MySQL Fabric hides most of that and will manage the high-availability for you.”
Ulin explained that the MySQL Fabric connector has knowledge about the systems that are deployed in an organization and provides an ‘out-of-the-box’ high-availability solution for MySQL database users.
