This ServerTemplate is on the LTS Lineage. For the latest Infinity version, see the Infinity Lineage
For a description of the Infinity and LTS lineages, see ServerTemplate Release Methodology

Configures a MySQL 5.5 database server. This ServerTemplate provides a high-availability master/slave database configuration that can be used as the backbone for a variety of applications and workloads.

The ServerTemplate supports multiple clouds, using either instance-based storage or attachable volumes. Instance-based snapshot backups are automatically uploaded to your choice of remote object storage (Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud Files, or SoftLayer Object Storage). It also includes iptables management for clouds that do not have firewall services.

Key Features: * Master or slave roles. * Uses attachable volumes or instance-based LVM volumes for primary backup. * Supports a secondary, disaster-recovery backup to S3, Cloud Files, or SoftLayer Object Storage remote object stores. * Support for striping of external volumes for faster database performance. * Continuous snapshot backups using a grandfather-father-son paradigm (on clouds with volume support). * Assisted database restoration, including stripe re-creation. * Provides scripts for master to slave fail-over, restoration of master, and more. * Choice of DNS providers (DNS Made Easy, DynDNS, AWS Route53). * iptables management within a three-tier scalable web architecture for clouds that do not have firewall services. * Pre-configured monitoring and alerts.

I have set up a server for AWS with this Template for 5.5 MySQL and it works great. No issues so far for the AWS Version. I will try the RackSpace next. Edward M. Goldberg, myCloudWatcher.
