As some already noticed it, I’ve recently joined the amazing MySQL family in Oracle.
I’m now part to the awesome MySQL Community Team and I will be mostly present in EMEA.
Why did I make such change ? Oracle offered me the opportunity to work in a domain I really like and I was already trying to represent the MySQL Community as much as I could but mostly in using my own free time (twitter, facebook, FOSDEM, …). Now this is my full time job !
Yes, OK, but why Oracle ? To be honest this answer is very easy to reply. Somebody interested in the MySQL Community for the last few years should be blind to not see the amount of work the MySQL …[Read more...]
This tutorial shows how to install and run a TYPO3 (version 8.1) web site on a Ubuntu 16.04 system that has a Nginx web server installed instead of Apache. This kind of setup is often called LEMP = Linux + Nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Nginx is a fast and efficient HTTP server that uses less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot faster, especially static files.
Welcome to this week’s Planets9s, covering all the latest resources and technologies we create around automation and management of open source database infrastructures.

In this blog, we’ll use some test results to look at the rationale for using provisioned IOPS volumes for AWS databases.
One piece of advice you often hear running MySQL, MongoDB or other databases in the AWS EC2 environment is that you should use volumes with provisioned IOPs. This kind of makes sense on the “marketing” level, where provisioned IOPS (io1) volumes are designed for IO-intensive database workloads, while General Purpose (gp2) volumes are not. But if you go to the AWS volume type description, you will find that gp2s are shown to have pretty good IO …[Read more...]
Until recently, VividCortex was still in the process of building some important support mechanisms for Amazon RDS. RDS is an extremely powerful database service, and for some purposes it requires its own, unique tooling. We needed to find a way to provide important operating system metrics, which are normally very useful in an environment and allow us to understand how a database interacts with available resources.
With our recent integration of CloudWatch, all of that changes. We’re now able to pull in all metrics regarding a database …[Read more...]
In this blog, I discuss a MongoDB administration checklist designed to help MySQL DBAs.
If you are MySQL DBA, starting MongoDB administration is not always an easy transition. Although most of the concepts and even implementation are similar, the commands are different. The following table outlines the typical MySQL concepts and DBA tasks (on the left) to corresponding MongoDB ones (on the right). If you happen to be a MongoDB DBA and want to learn MySQL administration, you can use the same table looking from right to left.
I’ve also created a webinar, …[Read more...]
