Solaris Cluster and Open HA Cluster are ready for MySQL 5.1

Guest Author

If you want high availability for MySQL
databases on Solaris or Open Solaris consider Solaris Cluster / Open
HA Cluster. Solaris Cluster supports all available releases for MySQ
5.1. The MySQL agent for Solaris Cluster is usable with the release
candidates of MySQL 5.1, and definitely with any final release of the
MySQL 5.1 enterprise server or the community server. In addition to
5.1 we support all the current versions up to 5.0.51a.

With Solaris Cluster, you can achieve
high availability for the MySQL database server and other
applications in the same cluster. Solaris Cluster provides you with a
rich framework to orchestrate any start or restart dependencies
between the MySQL database server and other applications. You can
even combine master and slave databases within the same Solaris
Cluster. So you can achieve highly available masters and highly
available slaves.

One advantage of the MySQL acquisition
is that we have now earlier access to to the MySQL enterprise
releases and closer access to the MySQL engineering force. So we can
qualify new versions earlier than before. The next advantage in the
close relationship is a faster problem resolution, because only one
organization is working on customer problems.

To enable the MySQL 5.1 support of the
Sun Cluster 3.2 agent for MySQL, you have to apply the following

    Solaris 9 Sparc: 126031-04 or higher

    Solaris 10 Sparc: 126032-04 or higher

    Solaris 10 X64: 126033-05 or higher
