Deploying FreeRADIUS with the MySQL Cluster Database

This Guide documents a best-practice approach to configuring and testing a FreeRADIUS server deployed with the MySQL Cluster database storage engine serving as the back-end data store for user and accounting data. Deployment topologies and configurations are presented, enabling users to quickly and simply replicate the solution in their own environment.

Check out the first whitepaper in this series entitled "Delivering Scalable & Highly Available Authentication & Accounting Services" which discusses the concepts of current data storage solutions for Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) environments and presents an alternative deployment scenario based on the FreeRADIUS Server and MySQL Cluster. A sizing study and user case study are included to demonstrate how the solution performs in real-world AAA environments
