Recently Google announced, that the second generation of Cloud SQL left the beta state and it is available. I decided to take a look, because last time when I checked it, it looked good, but I couldn’t take it seriously because of the nonexistent SLA. I have a few databases running on Amazon RDS, but I don’t […]

Using MySQL on Openshift - Red Hat's public cloud
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Developing a prototype, I found myself wanting a trustworthy cloud provider. Having heard of Openshift, I got my hands on it. It's Red Hat's Platform as a Service. With it, you can host and scale applications in a cloud environment. As a developer I found some wonderful features on the quite generous free tier. The ones I'd like to highlight are that:

There was a time when tag-clouds were the thing for website owners to fancy oneself. These clouds are mostly gone, but seen from the perspective of how to implement such a thing, one can learn quite a lot, especially with large amounts of links.

Amazon RDS updates February 2016
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I think one of the big announcements that came out from the Amazon Web Services world in October 2015 was the fact that you could spin up instances of MariaDB Server on it. You would get MariaDB Server 10.0.17. As of this writing, you are still getting that (the MySQL shipping then was 5.6.23, and today you can create a 5.6.27 instance, but there were no .24/.25/.26 releases). I’m hoping that there’s active work going on to make MariaDB Server 10.1 available ASAP on the platform.

Just last week you would …

Testing functionalities and options for a database can be challenging at times, as a live production environment might be required. As I was looking for different options, I was directed by Derek Downey to this post in the Percona blog.

The blog discussed an interesting and fun tool from Percona, tpcc-mysql. I was interested in testing the tool so I decided to play around with it in an AWS EC2 server.

Google Cloud SQL is a fully managed database service that makes it easy to set-up, maintain, manage, and administer your relational MySQL databases in the cloud. Cloud SQL allows you to focus on your applications rather than administering your databases. Hosted on Google Cloud Platform, Cloud SQL provides a database infrastructure for applications running anywhere.

To evaluate the performance of Google’s Cloud SQL Instances, we ran the tpcc-mysql benchmarking utility with a scale factor of 500 warehouses. The purpose of running tpcc-mysql on each system was to determine the throughput of each instance under varying loads (number of connections or threads). …
