Getting Started with Managed MySQL Replication

Updated by Chris Little on Dec 9, 2015

Overview

We offer two options of MySQL replication:

  • Master-Slave Replication: Enables data from one MySQL database server (the master) to be copied (typically asyncronous) to one or more MySQL database servers (the slaves).
  • Master-Master Replication: Enables data from any Master MySQL database server to be copied (typically syncronous) to other master nodes. CenturyLink Cloud Managed MySQL Services only supports (2) nodes currently.

This guide provides (2) unique options and customers should evaluate their needs to decide which fits business requirements.
