MySQL Cluster Evaluation Guide – refreshed for Cluster 7.2 DMR

 There is an updated version of the MySQL Cluster Evaluation Guide to go with the MySQL Cluster 7.2 Development Milestone Release.

The purpose of this guide is to enable you to efficiently evaluate the MySQL
Cluster database and determine if it is the right choice for your application,
whether as part of a new project or an upgrade to an existing service.
This guide presents a brief overview of the MySQL Cluster database and new
features in the latest 7.2 Development Milestone Release, and then discusses:

  • Considerations before initiating an evaluation
  • Evaluation best practices
  • Configuration options and sanity checking
  • Troubleshooting

By following the recommendations in this Guide, you will be able to quickly and
effectively evaluate the MySQL Cluster 7.2 Development Milestone Release

Please note that the MySQL Cluster 7.2 Development Milestone is not a currently
production-ready release. It is published to provide a preview of new features that
are planned, but not committed, for the next production-ready “General
Availability” release of MySQL Cluster.

    Do you have any idea when 7.2 will be GA? My company is waiting for 7.2 to be production ready before we migrate from InnoDB and replication to MySQL cluster. Thanks.

      David, unfortunately I’m not allowed to comment on the timing of GA beyond something so generic that it won’t help you (Oracle revenue-recognition rules). Obviously I’ll announce on this blog (and via @clusterdb twitter account) as soon as it goes GA.
