On https://www.mysql.com/products/community/, the InnoDB Cluster is listed as part of the MySQL community edition, but when clicking the "Download MySQL Community Edition" link and further, I end up on the NDB cluster documentation. So I'm confused about whether the InnoDB cluster is only availabla via the $5000 enterprise package, or if it's available for free too.

Have anyone looked into this, and know if the InnoDB Cluster is available for free?

  • I don't know what you clicked, but I don't land there. Try this link: dev.mysql.com/downloads/file/?id=474987 and click on "No thanks, just start my download" further down.

  • "Cluster" is ambiguous. MySQL Cluster == NDB Cluster != InnoDB Cluster.
