RDS or MySQL – Ten Use Cases

Read the original article at RDS or MySQL – Ten Use Cases

Amazon’s Relational Database Service is based on MySQL under the hood.  So many colleagues and clients ask me – should I go with RDS or MySQL? As with every technology question, the answer is – it depends.

Here are some scenarios to help you decide.

  • I’m replicating into Amazon from a physical datacenter
  • A: This setup is common if you’re using Amazon’s VPC or Virtual Private Cloud.  With a router dropped into your datacenter, VPC allows you to extend and spinup virtual instances from Amazon as if they’re sitting in your own existing datacenter.  Great stuff, but you won’t be able to replicate from your existing

    Ten things to remember about MySQL backups

    Read the original article at Ten things to remember about MySQL backups

  • Use Hot Backups
  • Hot backups are an excellent way to backup MySQL.  They can run without blocking your application, and save tons on restore time.  Percona’s xtrabackup tool is a great way to do this.  We wrote a how-to on using xtrabackup for hotbackups.

  • Use Logical Backups
  • Just because we love hot backups using xtrabackup doesn’t mean mysqldump isn’t useful.  Want to load data into Amazon RDS?  Want to isolate and load only one schema, or just

    I’ve  been getting more than my fair share of calls from recruiters of late. Even in this depressed economic climate where jobs are rarer than a cab at rush-hour, it’s heartening to know that tech engineers are in great demand. And it’s even more heartening to think that demand for MySQL DBAs has never been better.

    My reckoning was confirmed by a Bloomberg news report about stalwart retailers suffering from a dearth of talented engineers. Bloomberg cited Target’s outage-prone e-commerce site as a symptom of, among other things the market’s shortage. One of the challenges old-timers like Target face is having to compete with Silicon Valley startups
