Optimized State Snapshot Transfers in a WAN Environment
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Introduction

Galera Cluster is a robust product that allows you to create geo-distributed database clusters where the nodes are located in geographically separate locations. WAN links tend to be slow while database sizes tend to grow, and the disparity may become painfully obvious in cases where the entire dataset needs to be shipped over the network.

If a node joins the cluster either for the first time or after a period of prolonged downtime, it may need to obtain a complete snapshot of the database from some other node. This operation is called State Snapshot Transfer or SST, and is often reasonably quick in a LAN …

Faceted search, why the DevAPI could matter one day
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Faceted search or faceted navigation is a highly praised and widely use search pattern. And, it is a great reply to an off the records sales engineering question. MySQL finally has some document store features built-in. A bit of a yawn in 2016. There is a new X DevAPI available with some Connectors. …

On Using HPE Vertica. Interview with Eva Donaldson.
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

“After you have built out your data lake, use it. Ask it questions. You will begin to see patterns where you want to dig deeper. The Hadoop ecosystem doesn’t allow for that digging and not at a speed that is customer facing. For that, you need some sort of analytical database.”– Eva Donaldson.

I have interviewed Eva Donaldson, software engineer and data architect at iContact. Main topic of the interview is her experience in using HPE Vertica.

Downsizing to SSDs
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

System management can be a big deal. At Etsy, we DBAs have been feeling the pain of getting spread too thin. You get a nice glibc vulnerability and have to patch and reboot hundreds of servers. There goes your plans for the week.

We decided last year to embark on a 2016 mission to get better performance, easier management and reduced power utilization through a farm reduction in server count for our user generated, sharded data.

Scoping the Problems

Taking on a massive project to replace your entire fleet of hardware is not an easy sell, especially when on the surface it seems like everything is fine. As DBAs, we experienced …

Source of Truth or Source of Madness?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This year at Etsy, we spun up a “Database Working Group” that talks about all things data. It’s made up of members from many teams: DBA, core development, development tools and data engineering (Hadoop/Vertica). At our last two meetings, we started talking about how many “sources of information” we have in our environment. I hesitate to call them “sources of truth” because in many cases, we just report information to them, not action data based on them. We spent a session whiteboarding all of of these sources and drawing the relationships between …

MySQL 5.7 multi-source replication – automatically combining data from multiple databases into one
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL’s multi-source replication allows you to replicate data from multiple databases into one database in parallel (at the same time). This post will explain and show you how to set up multi-source replication. (WARNING: This is a very long and detailed post. You might want to grab a sandwich and a drink.)

In most replication environments, you have one master database and one or more slave databases. This topology is used for high-availability scenarios, where the reads and …
