Based on MySQL Server 5.6. MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 is based on MySQL Server 5.6, so that MySQL Cluster users can benefit from MySQL 5.6's improvements in scalability and performance monitoring.

For more information about changes and improvements in MySQL 5.6, see Section 1.4, “What Is New in MySQL 5.6”.
Tables created using the
engine version 7.3.0 and later provide support for foreign

releases.) For general information about how MySQL 5.6 and
MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 handle foreign keys, see
Section 18.104.22.168, “FOREIGN KEY Constraints”. For syntax and
related information, see Section 13.1.17, “CREATE TABLE Syntax”,
and Section 22.214.171.124, “Using FOREIGN KEY Constraints”.
MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 also supports applications written
NDB storage engine and as well as for

typically event-driven and use a domain object model
similar in many ways to that employed by ClusterJ. For
MySQL Cluster NDB 7.3 is also supported by MySQL Cluster Manager, which provides an advanced command-line interface that can simplify many complex MySQL Cluster management tasks. See MySQL™ Cluster Manager 1.3.6 User Manual, for more information.
