enjoying using this software since it is very helpful and interactive software

Data management

Pros

i like cluster control due to its ability to centralize the communication from both analog and digital I/O . Monitoring system activities is easy Eg managing data record on a large scale like data for organization which could have been tedious to handle.

Cons

involves keen and logical thinking and has got limitations in diffrent environments in which the software is working for example When using windows CE. when a control overlaps the cluster shell in a Touch Panel VI, the entire control is still completely visible when you build the VI into an application.

I build a Mysql cluster with 3 nodes on a customer ibfraestructure

2018-03-01

Talking about clusters, our experience is that it fells more confortable to administrators and users to have a dashboard and automatic task.

Pros

It's easy to understand and deploy. Automatic task makes the setup process more confortable.

Cons

If you don't have the pro version some changes on configuration are slow and complex. Alerts like system is swapping repeats over and over, however system is configured as specified in the installation guide

Great software for managing databases

2019-02-26

So far we have only done an initial evaluation of ClusterControl and found it to be very good, but too much is changing with our backend systems right now to move forward with any possible purchase decisions. That being said we definitely see where it can solve some of our biggest problems that we have encountered with our MySQL database.

Pros

Makes many tasks that are typically very difficult very easy like monitoring, automatically failing over in case of a server problem, building new database servers and managing replication.

Cons

It would be nice to have tighter integration with MaxScale to have more options for sql aware proxies.

I am very satisfied with the trial - features, complete documentation, great MySQL/Galera resources.

2018-03-21

Without a tool like S9S ClusterControl it will be very hard to perform realtime monitoring, to be productive and to act proactively.

Pros

Ability to monitor and control all the clusters at one place and notify you in case of trouble.

Cons

Price schema compared to competitors is not so flexible (it is a bit costly to monitor large number of servers), but I believe that the S9's sales team could negotiate in order to successfully close the deal.

We're sorry you were able to get ClusterControl operating on LXC. It's, unfortunately, not a supported environment and we haven't done any testing on it. Because of this, we're not surprised you had issues. Our support team reached out ot you on the 22nd but we didn't get a response. Please reach back out to our support if you would like to talk about it more.

We start using clustercontrol and stopped looking for alternatives

2018-03-01

We are now able to scale up to meet user demand as well as administer our databases from a single point.

Pros

We love the features and how it brings some other related services under one administrative control e.g. haproxy.

Cons

For some reason I am not able to reach customer support via email and for that reason we're stuck using the community edition with reduced features at this time.
