ClouSE 1.0b.1.8 is released

OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE Beta version 1.0b.1.8.  This is a minor maintenance release that addresses a couple pain points, while we’re working on a release candidate that will bring the built-in point-in-time recovery and other major features.

Here is the summary of changes:

  • Improved caching for Weblobs

Now ClouSE sets the cache control headers for Weblobs.  The cache control headers specify the max-age directive that allows caching content for one year.  This makes proxies and content delivery networks (CDN) more efficient.  The change resolves this support issue.

  • Improved error handling on startup

Now database requests

Here is an example of updating ClouSE using the Webmin console.

First, download ClouSE 64-bit binaries from http://www.oblaksoft.com/downloads/.  Then upload and extract the binaries to the /home/ec2-user directory. In

MySQL 5.6 through the eyes of a custom storage engine MySQL plugin

MySQL is famous for its pluggable storage engine architecture which allows a DBA or an application developer to choose the right engine for the task. An application uses MySQL API and is isolated from all of the low-level implementation details at the storage level. As an example, the Cloud Storage Engine (ClouSE) enables existing MySQL applications to use cloud storage such as Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage to store its data. The application doesn’t need to be changed or even redeployed: with ClouSE, remote cloud storage will look like a better (ultra-scalable, durable, always-on) alternative to the local storage.

As you may already know, ClouSE now supports

MySQL on Amazon S3: ClouSE version 1.0b.1.4 is released

OblakSoft is pleased to announce the release of ClouSE version 1.0b.1.4.  In this release we fixed some of the known ClouSE Beta limitations that required workarounds in some configurations.

ClouSE version 1.0b.1.3 and 64bit WordPress on S3 / Yapixx refresh is released

OblakSoft recommends upgrading ClouSE to the latest version 1.0b.1.3 that fixes an issue with some SELECT statements.  Previously some SELECT statements (e.g. using index_merge w/intersect query execution plans) may mistakenly miss records.

OblakSoft is also pleased to announce that 64-bit AMI of WordPress on S3 / Yapixx is now available.  We’ve got requests from customers who’d like to use the AMI in production, but didn’t want to run a 32-bit AMI, and had to build their own 64-bit AMI using our AMI as a reference.  Now they can use our standard fully configured ready-to-run 64-bit AMI directly as a starting platform for their WordPress on S3 production websites.

MySQL on S3: security and backups
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I got a few questions like the ones below that I’d like to address to avoid further confusion.
How exactly secure is ClouSE for MySQL, the first secure database in the cloud? Am I protected against standard application level security attacks or even accidental admin mistakes?
With the help of ClouSE I get instantaneous backup for my database on the highly durable cloud storage. But how would I protect my data in case a malicious attack or an accident did occur?

Re: security

I’ve got a comment pointing out that data encryption on the storage level doesn’t protect from SQL injections.  Of course, data encryption does not protect from SQL injections (as long as there is SQL involved, there will be a risk of a SQL
