Welcome to the ClustrixDB technical documentation. Relational databases are cornerstones of the modern information age. We entrust them with our most valuable data, and base entire operational systems on their reliability and correctness. Because they are at the heart of so many critical deployments, relational databases are some of the most carefully administered computer systems in the world. ClustrixDB greatly simplifies this administration. ClustrixDB runs in a variety of environments, comes with world-class monitoring tools and professional support, and scales to workloads large and small by simply adding or removing commodity servers.


ClustrixDB is a clustered SQL database that provides

  • Scalability

    • Is built from the ground up with a shared-nothing architecture. There is no MySQL code in ClustrixDB
    • Is built to scale transactions while maintaning ACID 
    • Scales to add capacity by simply adding commodity servers to the cluster
  • Built-in High Availability and Fault Tolerance

    • Is fault tolerant and automatically recovers in the face of hardware or other failure
    • Maintains multiple copies of all your data, so in the event that a server is lost, no data is lost
  • Simplicity  

    • Uses a simple SQL interface that is compatible with MySQL syntax
    • Includes a patented Rebalancer that automatically distributes data across the the cluster as a background process to evenly distribute load with no user intervention required
    • Performs distributed joins that do not require data to be broadcast
