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

    Oracle Announces Paid MySQL Add-ons

     Oracle starts charging for MySQL Add-ons

    Exciting news, Oracle just announced commercial MySQL extensions that they'll be offering paid extensions to the core MySQL free product.

    To be sure, this has raised waves of concern among the community, but on the whole I suspect it will be a good thing for MySQL.  This brings more commercial addons to the table, which only increases the options for customers.  Many will continue to use the core database product only, and avoid license hassles while others will surely embark on a hybrid approach if it solves their everyday business problems.

    Speaking of licensing, back in May, Amazon announced that it's RDS or Relational Database Service would now offer Oracle as an option.

    5 Ways to Avoid EC2 Outages

    1. Backup outside of the Cloud

    Some of the high profile companies affected by Amazon's April 2011 outage could have recovered had they kept a backup of their entire site outside of the cloud.  With any hosting provider, managed traditional data center or cloud provider, alternate backups are always a good idea.  A MySQL logical backup and/or incremental backup can be copied regularly offsite or to an alternate cloud provider.  That's real insurance!

    2. Use alternate regions and availability zones

    3 Ways to Boost Cloud Scalability
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Deploying in the Amazon cloud is touted as a great way to achieve high scalability while paying only for the computing power you use. How do you get the best scalability from the technology?

    1. Use Auto-scaling

    Auto-scaling is a unique feature of cloud computing and Amazon's EC2 offering. Setup a load balancer and a couple of webservers for your application as you normally would. Design your webserver based on a template AMI that you'll reuse over and over. Then setup auto-scaling and set thresholds based on the traffic you forecast. When a threshold is passed, AWS will spinup a new instance of your webserver, and roll it into the load balancer pool
