Picking the right clustering for MySQL: Cloud-only services or flexible Tungsten clusters?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
As businesses head into the cloud, it is tempting to reach for the first product that offers to make database operation as simple as punching a few buttons on a menu.  However, there’s a big difference between firing up cloud database services such as Amazon RDS for testing or development and finding a solution that can handle hundreds of millions of transactions daily. This webinar explores how

Streaming backups onto the Cloud Storage
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down


MySQL Enterprise Backup(MEB) has been widely used as the most efficient tool to take backups of huge databases. The storage of backups can be done on-premises – viz, local hard disk, external hard disk drives, network mounted disk. MEB can also stream backups to tape by supporting different Media Management Software like Symantec NetBackup, EMC2 and Oracle Secure Backup. Streaming of backups can also be done using 'ssh' to another machine.

As data keeps growing, instead of expanding the storage, database users are choosing to rely on the growing trend which is the Cloud Storage.

A few facts about Cloud Storage:

1. Offers off-premises storage with AAA(Anytime, Anywhere Access)
2. Sharing of data to make a collaborative effort.
3. Highly fault tolerant, durable and scalable and secure.
4. Cost-effective

CoreOS Review
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I have spent a few days now playing with CoreOS and helping other members of HP's Advanced Technology Group get it running on their setups.
Today I thought I would write about the good and the bad about CoreOS so far.  Many components are in an alpha or beta state so things may change over the coming months.  Also as a disclaimer, views in this post are my own and not necessarily those of HP.

Installation


As stated in my blog post yesterday, I have been using CoreOS on my Macbook Pro using Vagrant and VirtualBox.  This made it extremely easy to setup the CoreOS cluster on my Mac.  I made a minor mistake to start with, and that is to not configure the unique URL required for Etcd correctly.  A mistake a colleague of mine also made on his first try so it

Porting from Oracle to MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
A potential customer asked my about porting her application from Oracle Database to MySQL.

I always try to start with the "why" (a dear friend bought me this book, recommended: http://www.amazon.com/Start-Why-Leaders-Inspire-Everyone/dp/1591846447).

She said "cloud!". I said "OK!".

I conducted a short research, found many things in many places all over the place, brought them to a nice email I sent her back and then thought I'll post it here and make it public as it might be useful for us all. If you feel that I missed something, add comments, send feedback.

These are the leading tools to do the actual migration of the data structure, data export/import, sprocs, triggers, etc.:

    MySQL is a Great Fit for Cloud-Based Deployments
    Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    MySQL's architecture and features make the database a great fit for cloud based deployments. If you are interested in using MySQL to deliver web-based applications and scale out, read the white paper MySQL, An Ideal Choice in the Cloud (http://www.mysql.com/why-mysql/white-papers/mysql-an-ideal-choice-for-the-cloud/).

    The importance of backup verification
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    I have recently moved to HP's Advanced Technology Group which is a new group in HP and as part of that I will be blogging a lot more about the Open Source things I and others in HP work on day to day.  I thought I would kick this off by talking about work that a colleague of mine, Patrick Crews, worked on several months ago.

    For those who don't know Patrick, he is a great Devops Engineer and QA.  He will find new automated ways of breaking things that will torture applications (and the Engineers who write them). I don't know if I am proud or ashamed to say he has found many bugs in code that I have written by doing the software equivalent of beating it with a sledgehammer.

    Every Devops Engineer worth his salt knows that backups are important, but one thing that is regularly forgotten about is

    Benchmarking the Cloud

    Benchmarking, and benchmarking the cloud, is incredibly error prone. I provided guidance though this minefield in the benchmarking chapter of my book (Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud); that chapter can be read online on the InformIT site. I also gave a lightning talk about benchmarking gone wrong at Surge last year. In this post, I’m going to cut to the chase and show you the tools I commonly use for basic cloud benchmarking.

    As explained in the benchmarking chapter, I do not run these tools passively. I perform Active Benchmarking, where I use a variety of other

    What? Me? technophobic? I have the latest iPhone, my office is jam packed with USB gadgets and my car is a Prius, how much more techno friendly can one get?

    That is all fine, but looking beyond fun technologies that we play with just for fun, or natural, but cool and useful, evolutions come to most of us easily. But can you honestly say (I can't) that you always look at the promise of a new technology and never have never looked at it not from the point of view of the obvious new advantages, when the technology has developed into something useful, and instead just looked at it and judged this new technology only from it's first, shaky, implementation?

    ClouSE 1.0b.1.8 is released

    OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE Beta version 1.0b.1.8.  This is a minor maintenance release that addresses a couple pain points, while we’re working on a release candidate that will bring the built-in point-in-time recovery and other major features.

    Here is the summary of changes:

    • Improved caching for Weblobs

    Now ClouSE sets the cache control headers for Weblobs.  The cache control headers specify the max-age directive that allows caching content for one year.  This makes proxies and content delivery networks (CDN) more efficient.  The change resolves this support issue.

    • Improved error handling on startup

    Those who are familiar with me know I've a dream.

    5 years ago I decided to leave a systems integrator where I was doing great. Why? I wanted to be in a company with the same growth prospects that Oracle had in the 80s. I dreamed to be in the Oracle of 30 years ago and, as time travel wasn't affordable, I decided to join MySQL AB to help expand the business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
    A few years later my dream came true, but in a slightly different sense. Sun acquired MySQL and was later swallowed by

    We just released our first alpha of Percona XtraBackup 2.1 for MySQL and with it we included the ability to encrypt backups on the fly (full documentation here). This feature is different than simply piping the backup stream through the openssl or gpg binaries, which is what some people have used in the past. A big benefit of using the built-in encryption is that multiple CPU cores can be used for encryption
