I need to deploy a MySQL cluster but initially no bucks for the MySQL Cluster Manager Client.

It's at least $5k and I actually think in my case it will go way over that.

I looked a lot on Google (a few days actually, part-time) for an opensource solution with no success. I also didn't find anything about such solution here at stackoverflow etc.

But I still find it hard to believe that no one tried or succeeded building such a client, even if it's not open source, at least "cheaper/less expensive".

Now another point, what will I be missing by not having this client? For what I saw I could write scripts for most of what it does, is there HUGE advantages to using it?

PS. Changing to another "HA" solution like master master or etc is not an option...

PS2. Using any of the other cluster solutions, like persona's is not an option...

Edited here: btw, it works great and I wrote simple automation scripts myself. I wanted to use names instead of ips for the nodes, but it it seems impossible... lol

Thanks everyone for the replies!

Be sure you know what you're getting in to. The thing called MySQL Cluster is not vanilla MySQL, but a specific storage engine with a specific set of requirements and restrictions. You are going to need to do some hardcore architectural investigation if you go down that road. – Charles Mar 11 '12 at 6:16
