Configuring Clustered MySQL in VMware Data Services Manager (Video)

In this video, you will see how easy it is to create a clustered MySQL database through VMware Data Services Manager (DSM) v1.4. The video shows how to deploy a clustered MySQL database at deployment time rather than building a standalone MySQL database and then enabling a clustered configuration. You will see how a ‘clustered’ IP address is used to act as a front-end IP address for the cluster, and also how a read-write access port of 6446 is used to connect to the database rather than the default port of 3306. Finally, you will see how to use the MySQL client to login to the database and verify the replication status displayed in the VMware DSM UI. You can read how to set up such a configuration in detail in this blog post.
