In the next following sections I'll be using Chef to deploy a MySQL Galera cluster on EC2 and then monitor and manage it using Severalnines's ClusterControl.
In the end we should have 5 nodes deployed:
* 1 Node with Chef Server and serving also as a Chef workstation using Chef v0.10.8
* 3 Nodes running MySQL Galera v18.104.22.168
* 1 Node running ClusterControl v1.1.28
The distribution used for the EC2 nodes in this post is Ubuntu Server 11.10 and the Chef version used is 0.10.8.
