I am looking to ease the maintenance of working with our databases and having a single point of management that can accomplish the following

  • Load balances reads to replicas
  • Sends writes only to the master
  • If a master fails it automatically promotes one of the replicas to master

A bonus would be if I dont have to setup the replication on the individual servers and it could be managed directly from this software

I think MaxScale checks all these boxes but it is extremally expensive.

So I am wondering is MaxScale worth it or are there better alternatives that are not as expensive
