So, the infection is underway, and there will be no return to the steam-age with async replication. Galera is replication redefined - and this is permanent. Biggest news in this release is that we now support both MySQL 5.1 and 5.5 series. Other nice features (since 0.8.1 level) include:
- replication over SSL
- garbd - the lightweight arbitator
- causal read support
- persistent write set buffering
So, there it is: www.codership.com/downloads/download-mysqlgalera/ .And there is even more to it. Our beloved western neighbors, brave dudes from Severalnines have worked, if possible, even harder than us and are releasing Severalnines ClusterControl for MySQL Galera. ClusterControl provides three utilities:
Check out: www.severalnines.com/galera-configurator to get started. With the configurator, you just fill in your system information, and you will receive a tarball with deployment script, which will install and configure your MySQL/Galera cluster automatically.
So there goes, now back to PerconaLive - it is intense here!

We will send a three person mini-delegation in the conference, and here we follow the guidelines we have been preaching to the Galera community for long: always have at least three members in the cluster for high availability. With the presence of conference buffets, evening reception, London attractions, pubs & night life, Chelsea stadium etc..., our team may have to do a few internal failovers. But, three member staffing guarantees that at least one of us is available at all times for any discussion you may want to get us involved with, preferably HA, replication or clustering related, as these topics make our world tick.
Our presentation will focus in Galera replication new features developed during summer time. Since the MySQL User Conference in April, we have pushed three new 0.8 series releases, and, now the Galera 1.0 release is just about sliding out of the shipyard. A wealth of new features altogether, well worth 30 min talk session.
Ohoj! hope to see you there!
