Master / Slave Database Connections

After refactoring the database connection layer, Pimcore now supports master/slave connections for clustered MariaDB/MySQL environments. Database Clustering is the process of combining more than one servers or instances connecting a single database. Sometimes one server may not be adequate to manage the amount of data or the number of requests, that is when a Data Cluster is needed. The main reasons for database clustering are its advantages a server receives; Data redundancy, Load balancing, High availability, and lastly, Monitoring and automation. We use this for example for high-load and high-availability B2B and B2C commerce installations of Pimcore on Amazon Aurora DB Clusters. You can learn more about the setup and configuration in our latest Best Practice Article.

Performance Improvements

A highly awaited feature for solutions with the most complex product data models, featuring 100s or sometimes even 1000s of attributes and relations. Lazy-loaded relations are now supported within localized fields, field collections and object bricks. This makes the whole admin interface run tremendously smoother and faster when working with lots of data.

Improved handling of embedded asset meta-information

  • Support for data-at-rest encryption (MySQL/MariaDB) on data objects
  • Fixed some XSS vulnerabilities in the admin interface
  • Support for date library Carbon 2
