Learn why Tungsten Clustering is a better (complete, proven) and more cost-effective (software, 24/7 support and consulting all included) MySQL High Availability (HA), Disaster Recovery (DR) and Geographically-Distributed (Geo-Scale) solution compared to ClusterControl.

For any MySQL clustering to be a complete high-availability and disaster recovery solution, it requires three core components working in sync: connectivity (proxy), management (orchestration) and replication (local/global).

Tungsten Clustering includes three highly integrated and fully tested components Tungsten Proxy, Tungsten Manager and Tungsten Replicator working together to provide both local (individual clusters) and global (multiple clusters working together) data service for continuous 24/7 MySQL operations.

Connectivity

Complete and Integrated
(Tungsten Proxy)

Orchestration

Integrated Business Rules
(Tungsten Manager)

Replication

Advanced Local and Global
(Tungsten Replicator)

ClusterControl provides a database deployment and monitoring tool for MySQL and MariaDB. It helps deploy open source solutions, and for HA the more relevant deployment is Galera Cluster. It does not add any specific additional features to these products however, so the features and limitations of the products still remain the same, and multi-site/geo deployments are still extremely limited. The free version is quite limited and cannot deploy a proxy nor load balancer.

Connectivity

Can deploy an external proxy or load balancer (non-free version only)

Orchestration

Good

Replication

Can deploy MySQL Replication, InnoDB Cluster, or Galera Cluster for local needs, N/A for global needs
