Distribute the traffic for managed database

  • Posted August 14, 2021

Hello everyone,

I’m working on a large app & website using PHP\Laravel, and I have the following servers:

  1. One load balancer.
  2. Three Webservers.
  3. one Redis server for a session, and cache.
  4. one worker server for running the jobs.
  5. One big MySQL server for the database.

However, I want to add a load balancer in front of the database to distribute the traffic.

My question is, will the managed database help with this? Or I should go with instances instead and configure the MySQL cluster manually?

Hi @devkhaledz,

You should be able to use both the suggested options - managed database, configuring MySQL cluster manually.

My opinion however would be to go about configuring it manually but that’s a personal reference not based on any facts, I just like doing it that way. Having said that, both options are plausible and achievable. It’s basically, up to you.
