MySQL Cluster utilizes a “shared nothing” architecture which does not require any additional infrastructure investment to provide 99.999% data availability with no single point of failure.
MySQL Cluster is primarily an in-memory database, but one that also provides optional disk-based data all available via a SQL interface or optionally via a high-performance native C++ or Java interface using the Carrier Grade Edition.
WARNING: MySQL Cluster 7.3.0 M1 for Mac OS X is a preview release for development purposes and is not recommended or supported in production environments.
