Description : Official fork of mysql. Support master-master replication.
Mysql cluster is highly scalable, multi-master database with 99.999% availability. It is an official fork of mysql maintained by Oracle.
Main difference from "pure" mysql is an additional storage engine called ndbcluster. This engine allows distribution across multiple servers to provide data high availability and scalability. Supports in-memory and disk based data, automatic load-balancing and rolling restart with zero downtime.
In comparison to "pure" mysql server cluster contains 2 new services management (ndb_mgm) and storage (ndbd). It requires at least 4 servers for a meaningful installation (it is possible to use just one server, but only for testing).
Some scripts in package can be copied from mysql-server package. I would like to place this package under:
MySQL maintainers <pkg-mysql-maint.lists.alioth.debian.org> team since there are many similarities with other mysql-like databases.
