Before a client can start to access and consume services on a network, they must first be Authenticated to the network and then Authorized to use the services they are entitled too.  Their consumption of network resources then needs to be captured via the Accounting processes.  Collectively, Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) is a cornerstone of today’s network security, management and in many cases, monetization. RADIUS is a standard protocol to implement this AAA service.

As these networks grow, limitations can occur which add administrative overhead, inhibit flexible scaling and impact the timely synchronization of data across the AAA environment.

Using MySQL Cluster as the data store for a RADIUS server makes a lot of sense as it brings with it all of the standard MySQL Cluster benefits such as real-time response times, scalability, high availability and geographic redundancy.

Two new white papers have been produced to explain how MySQL Cluster can be used as the fault-tolerant, real-time, scalable data store for FreeRADIUS (a leading, open-source RADIUS server):

As these networks grow, limitations can occur which add administrative overhead, inhibit flexible scaling and impact the timely synchronization of data across the AAA environment.
