Clustering SugarCRM with MySQL Galera for High Availability and Performance
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
March 20, 2014 By Severalnines

SugarCRM is the leader in open source CRM systems, and has been adopted by some of the largest firms, including IBM. The CRM software includes all sales, marketing and support tools out of the box, and can also be extended to integrate social media sources. For those depending on SugarCRM, especially when deploying in cloud environments with lower SLAs, having a high availability architecture can make a lot of sense. 

In this blog post, we will show you how to cluster SugarCRM Community Edition

Open source and the cloud - the quick and the dead
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Savio Rodrigues has published a post arguing that cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft’s Azure pose a threat to the monetization of open source by specialist vendors.

Savio makes a good case based on the recent launch of AWS’s Relational Database Service, based on MySQL, and Microsoft’s support for MySQL and Tomcat on Azure:

    “When Amazon decided to offer MySQL via Amazon RDS, they did so without purchasing MySQL support from Sun. I’ve confirmed that Microsoft Azure is supporting MySQL on Azure without paying Sun for a MySQL Enterprise subscription.”

Clearly there is a threat to open source vendors from cloud-based services. Meanwhile I have previous

All of which prompted Florian Mueller, who it should be noted is working with Widenius as part of his campaign, to claim that there is growing public opposition to Oracle owning Sun’s MySQL.

Open Source does not mean Customization Heaven..
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Unless you are doing it wrong.

And sadly I`m seeing more and more people doing it wrong.
To a lot of people Open Source means that they have a piece of software that does almost what they want and which they can modify to their best wishes and use internally.

So they fork locally,, they don't redistribute their code , but they aren't contributing their changes back upstream, chances are these changes wouldn't be accepted upstream anyhow as they are really customizing the code for their specific cases. At first sight this doesn't look so bad , at second sight ..

When weeks or months later the upstream project releases an urgent security fix, the local fork has deviated soo much that it can't upgrade anymore and stays with an insecure version.
Often it's worse.. a feature that could have been accepted upstream has been implemented

Analyzing Opportunities in SugarCRM
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since we released our first Beta, we have been working on various examples to demonstrate the capabilities and benefits of a resource oriented approach to data integration.

One of the examples we have been working on is a data mart for SugarCRM opportunity analysis. We have now published that example on our content download site, packages.snaplogic.org , where you can download it, and try it out. (You will also need a SnapLogic server installation, to run the pipelines.)

The general idea behind data marts is simple – they are subject specific alternatives to a full blown data warehouse. The primary benefits of using a separate database to analyze an operational system are the ability to look at a snapshot of the constantly changing data, and the offloading of the queries to a separate database which is optimized for analysis using a star
