Use Oracle 12c Preinstall RPM with CentOS 6.5

If you want to install Oracle 12c on EL6 Linux Systems there are many pre-install steps that you should do before actually begin the database installation.

For ease Oracle provide as name states RPM package: oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall
But it is only for Oracle Linux from Oracle Public YUM Repo.
Ofcourse you can activate this repo without trouble but in fact problem of this RPM is dependency of Oracle Linux Kernel exactly UEK. Output:

 oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall    x86_64    1.0-8.el6                  /oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall-1.0-8.el6.x86_64     37 k

MySQL Connector/NET 6.9.3 GA has been released

Dear MySQL users,

Selective Restore of InnoDB Tables with MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.11


Sometimes the best way to repair data issues and problems within a MySQL database is to restore only some of the tables from a backup. For example, suppose that some data was accidentally deleted from one table due to a software error, then the easiest way to recover the lost data might be to restore only one table from a backup. Previously this kind of partial restore was not supported by MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB). However, MEB 3.11 introduces support for selective restore from backups created with the --use-tts option (or TTS backups).

TTS backups are backups that are created with the transportable tablespaces feature of InnoDB. These backups consist of InnoDB tables that …

OK, so what do you need to start using MEB with Amazon S3 service?

  1. Amazon AWS account. You can register it for free at

Optimistic Backup


MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) is a highly efficient tool for taking backups of your MySQL databases. In the 3.11.0 release we are taking that one step further by introducing a new concept called "optimistic" backup. Optimistic backup leverages the patterns we saw frequently especially as related to very large databases.

For backups the goals are:
1 - Quality and Consistency - the backup and more importantly the restore just "works"
2 - Size, time, and overhead - like in the game of golf - low score wins - for backups and for
3 - Flexibility – It’s not always one size fits all - whether how the backup is run, where it goes,
     how it is recovered.

With optimistic backup - we look at mostly the read aspects of your database to enable us to create a backup that is smaller, faster to backup, faster to …
