ClusterControl is a unified console to manage the full database lifecycle of the most popular open-source databases (on-premise or in the cloud). Provision, monitor and manage highly available database clusters in minutes with dashboards, backups, notifications, reports and automated recovery.

Supported databases: MariaDB, MariaDB Galera Cluster, Percona, Percona XtraDB Cluster, MySQL Replication, MySQL Cluster (NDB), PostgreSQL, Redis, TimescaleDB and MongoDB ReplicaSet and Shards

Deploying the ClusterControl Marketplace App

Linode’s App Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager. To access Linode’s App Marketplace:

  1. Log in to your Linode Cloud Manager account.

  2. From the Linode dashboard, click on the Marketplace button in the left-hand navigation menu.

  3. The Linode creation page appears, with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  4. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy:

    Select a Marketplace App to deploy

  5. Once you have selected the app, proceed to the app’s Options section and provide values for the required fields.

ClusterControl Configuration Options

You can configure your ClusterControl App by providing values for the following fields:

FieldDescription
MySQL Root PasswordMySQL Root Password. Required.
CMON User PasswordCMON user password. Required.
Your Linode API TokenYour Linode API Token is needed to create DNS records. If this is provided along with the subdomain and domain fields, the installation attempts to create DNS records via the Linode API. If you don’t have a token, but you want the installation to create DNS records, you must create one before continuing.
SubdomainThe subdomain you wish the installer to create a DNS record for during setup. The suggestion given is www. The subdomain should only be provided if you also provide a domain and API Token.
DomainThe domain name where you wish to host your ClusterControl instance. The installer creates a DNS record for this domain during setup if you provide this field along with your API Token.
SSLWould you like to use a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate? (Uses the Linode’s default rDNS if no domain is specified).

Linode Configuration Options

After providing the App-specific options, provide configurations for your Linode server:

ConfigurationDescription
Select an ImageUbuntu 20.04 LTS is currently the only image supported by the ClusterControl Marketplace App, and it is pre-selected on the Linode creation page. Required.
RegionThe region where you would like your Linode to reside. In general, it’s best to choose a location that’s closest to you. For more information on choosing a DC, review the How to Choose a Data Center guide. You can also generate MTR reports for a deeper look at the network routes between you and each of our data centers. Required.
Linode PlanYour Linode’s hardware resources. ClusterControl can be supported on any size Linode, but we suggest you deploy your ClusterControl App on a Linode plan that reflects how you plan on using it. If you decide that you need more or fewer hardware resources after you deploy your app, you can always resize your Linode to a different plan. Required.
Linode LabelThe name for your Linode, which must be unique between all of the Linodes on your account. This name is how you identify your server in the Cloud Manager Dashboard. Required.
Root PasswordThe primary administrative password for your Linode instance. This password must be provided when you log in to your Linode via SSH. The password must meet the complexity strength validation requirements for a strong password. Your root password can be used to perform any action on your server, so make it long, complex, and unique. Required.

After providing all required Linode Options, click on the Create button. Your ClusterControl App will complete installation anywhere between 2-5 minutes after your Linode has finished provisioning.

Getting Started after Deployment

Access your ClusterControl App

To access your ClusterControl instance, Open a browser and navigate to the domain you created during in the beginning of your deployment or your Linode rDNS domain https://li1234-555.members.linode.com. Replace https://li1234-555.members.linode.com with your Linode’s RDNS domain.

From there you will see the welcome screen where you can enter the requested information to setup your ClusterControl instance:

ClusterControl Installation Screen

Now that you’ve accessed your dashboard, checkout the official ClusterControl documentation to learn how to further configure your instance.

Note
Currently, Linode does not manage software and systems updates for Marketplace Apps. It is up to the user to perform routine maintenance on software deployed in this fashion.
