MySQL InnoDB Cluster 8.0 GA is Available Now!

The MySQL Development Team is proud and happy to announce the General Availability release of InnoDB Cluster 8.0! This is an extremely exciting release of our integrated, native, full stack High Availability (HA) solution for MySQL.

InnoDB Cluster provides an out-of-the-box and easy to use built-in HA and Scaling solution for MySQL by tightly integrating the following GA components:

  • MySQL 8.0.11+ Servers with Group Replication, to provide the data replication mechanism within InnoDB clusters, ensuring fault tolerance, automated failover, and elasticity. (download)
  • MySQL Shell 8.0.11+, the unified interface for MySQL developers and DBAs to create and manage InnoDB Clusters using the built-in AdminAPI. (download)
  • MySQL Router 8.0.11+, to provide transparent routing between the client (application) requests and the InnoDB cluster server instances. (download)

The highlights of the changes and improvements made since the previous 1.0 GA release can be seen at “MySQL InnoDB Cluster – What’s new in the 8.0 GA Release“, and you can download the GA packages from our MySQL APT (Ubuntu, Debian) and YUM (Redhat, OEL, Fedora) repositories or from

In order to help you get started, we have published a general tutorial to help new users to get started: MySQL InnoDB Cluster 8.0 – A Hands-on Tutorial.

The official documentation has been updated and can now be found in the InnoDB Cluster User Guide.

This is the second GA release of InnoDB Cluster, so if you’re already using InnoDB Cluster 1.0 we recommend you to upgrade to 8.0 right away. If not, now is a great time to try the new version and let us know what you think. We would love to get your feedback!

Feel free to leave any suggestions, requests, issues or bugs here in the comments, via a bug report, or a support ticket.

Thank you for using MySQL!
