Automatic clustering can now be enabled right from the Jelastic PaaS topology wizard in one click. This functionality has been released starting from Jelastic PaaS version 5.5.3 for a set of databases and application servers.
“Jelastic focus on developing and implementing automatic clustering is fully dictated by the rising demand from customers. We facilitate the process of reaching high availability and high performance for our users by transforming the complex task that requires too much expertise to a simple automated step.” says Ruslan Synytsky, Jelastic CEO and co-founder.
It is a well-known fact that clusterization is already an obligatory requirement for production solutions to make applications and services highly available. However, the configuration of a reliable cluster is not a trivial task even for experienced developers and system administrators. So Jelastic introduced out-of-the-box clustering to ensure that applications are highly available by default.
Currently, automatic clustering is available for the following software stacks (more coming soon):
- MariaDB, MySQL and Couchbase database servers;
- GlassFish, Payara and WildFly application servers.
The auto-clustering feature can be enabled through the same-named switcher in the central part of the topology wizard. For databases, there is also available the choice of clusterization types (i.e., Master-Slave, Master-Master, Galera, Single MGR or Multi MGR).
