Streaming backups onto the Cloud Storage
Employee_Team +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 …

CoreOS Review

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 …

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 …

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 …

Benchmarking the Cloud
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

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 …
