Welcome to our new 1.6.0 release! Restoring your database using only a backup for disaster recovery is at times not enough. You often want to restore to a specific point in time or transaction after the backup happened. You can now do Point In Time Recovery – PITR for MySQL based databases by passing in a stop time or an event position in the binary logs as a recovery target.

We are also continuing to add cloud functionality:

  • Launch cloud instances and deploy a database cluster on AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure from your on-premise installation.
  • Upload/download backups to Azure cloud storage.
  • Our cluster topology view now supports PostgreSQL replication clusters and MongoDB ReplicSets and Shards. Easily see how your database nodes are related to each other and perform actions with intuitive drag and drop motion.

As in every release we continuously work on improving our UX/UI experience for our users. This time around we have re-designed the DB User Management page for MySQL based clusters. It should be easier to understand and manage your database users with this new user interface.

Feature Details


  • Point In Time Recovery – PITR (MySQL)
    • Position and time-based recovery for MySQL based clusters.
    • Recover until the date and time given by Restore Time (Event time – stop date&time).
    • Recover until the stop position is found in the specified binary log file. If you enter binlog.001827 it will scan existing binary logs files until binlog.001827 (inclusive) and not go any further.
  • Deploy and manage clusters on public Clouds (BETA)
    • Supported cloud providers
      • Amazon Web Services (VPC).
      • Google Cloud.
      • Microsoft Azure.
    • Supported databases:
      • MySQL Galera.
      • PostgreSQL.
      • MongoDB ReplicaSet.
    • Current limitations:
      • There is currently no accounting in place for cloud instances. You will need to manually remove created cloud instances.
      • You cannot add or remove a node automatically with cloud instances.
      • You cannot deploy a load balancer automatically with a cloud instance.
  • Topology View
    • Support added for:
      • PostgreSQL Replication clusters.
      • MongoDB ReplicaSets and Sharded clusters.
