Galera is a clustering system. For details see http://galeracluster.com/

Status

Current plan is to package one Galera package into Debian that can act as the WSREP provider for all MySQL forks that have a WSREP consumer.

Principal drivers are Otto Kekäläinen and James Page.

Binaries for public testing

The directory http://labs.seravo.fi/~otto/mariadb-repo/ (and galera-named subdirectories) is browseable and there you can find build logs and both binary and source packages. Build logs have the git hash appended so it is possible to track build logs per commit.

Latest test packages can be installed after adding the sources.list line corresponding to your distro:

  # Precise binaries widely compatible
  deb http://labs.seravo.fi/~otto/mariadb-repo/ galera-sid-amd64/
  deb http://labs.seravo.fi/~otto/mariadb-repo/ galera-sid-i386/

Building yourself

Work in progress at https://github.com/ottok/galera

Git clone the package and run 'dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -b'.

TODO

* Wait for Jessie to be released and then upload the Galera package into Debian unstable
