We are getting ready to setup an API gateway cluster. Reading previous posts, I understand that we can chose either an externally hosted mysql database or mysql hosted on gateway OVA.
- if we go the route of external mysql - is there any guidance on which mysql to use - there are multiple flavors of it available ...
- If we plan on growing our API gateway cluster - would it be beneficial to go with external mysql to reduce the load on gateway node which is also hosting mysql?
any guidance you can provide will help us out.
