What else is new?

  • Jobs run from SQS, the API or the built-in Scheduler will now fail-over in the event of an instance failure.
  • Scheduled runs missed because a server is offline will be run when it becomes available again.
  • Once two or more members are in the cluster, a Cluster Info tab shows membership status and activity.
  • OAuth tokens, Database Drivers and RSD Profiles are replicated via the persistence database (postgres).
  • Logging from each node is sent to Cloudwatch.
  • Cloudformation Templates help you get started with a clustered Matillion.
