Percona XtraDB Cluster 5.7 Documentation¶
Percona XtraDB Cluster is a database clustering solution for MySQL. It ensures high availability, prevents downtime and data loss, and provides linear scalability for a growing environment.
Features of Percona XtraDB Cluster include:
Data is written to all nodes simultaneously, or not written at all if it fails even on a single node.
Any node can trigger a data update.
True parallel replication
Multiple threads on slave performing replication on row level.
Automatic node provisioning
You simply add a node and it automatically syncs.
No more unsynchronized nodes.
PXC Strict Mode
Avoids the use of experimental and unsupported features.
Configuration script for ProxySQL
Percona provides a ProxySQL package with the
proxysql-admintool that automatically configures Percona XtraDB Cluster nodes.
Automatic configuration of SSL encryption
Percona XtraDB Cluster includes the
pxc-encrypt-cluster-trafficvariable that enables automatic configuration of SSL encryption.
Percona XtraDB Cluster performance is optimized to scale with a growing production workload.
