Scale Out Usage

then relate it to the sugarcrm service:

MySQL replication enables one database server (called the master) to replicate
to one or more database servers (called slaves). MySQL replication is most
beneficial for a system that processes frequent reads and infrequent writes.
If you are running MySQL with a slave set up you can attach SugarCRM directly
to the MySQL slaves directly. To do this first set up a slave relation with
MySQL (If you've already done so skip to the next set of commands):
juju deploy mysql mysql-slave juju add-relation mysql:master mysql-slave:slave
Going forward you can scale out MySQL by adding slaves via:
juju add-unit mysql-slave.
Create a relation between the new slave services and SugarCRM:
juju add-relation sugarcrm:slave mysql-slave
