After seeing the basics of deploying a MySQL server in Docker, in this article we will lay the foundations to customising a node and eventually using more than one server, so that we can cover replication in the next one.
Enabling GTID: the dangerous approach.To enable GTID, you need to set five variables in the database server:
Docker is one of the fastest growing trends in IT. It allows fast
deployment of services and applications on a Linux machine (and,
with some limits, on other operating systems). Compared to other
methods of deploying databases, such as virtual machines or application
isolation, it offers faster operations and better
Many people, surprised by the sudden advance of this technology, keep asking What is Docker? And why you should use it?
I will write soon an article with a …
My job is almost completely reliant upon my ability to perform work in lab of virtual machines. Almost every action plan I write is tested locally. When I need to troubleshoot an issue for a client one of the most common first steps I’ll perform is attempting to recreate the issue in a virtual environment so I can work on it there without the risk of impacting client data.
I believe that having a place to test and grow your skills is an absolute necessity for anyone working in the IT field today regardless of your specialization, even if you’re an IT generalist. But every now and then I hear about individuals who have issues with their virtual machines or …[Read more...]

Virtual Machines are great, and very useful when trying out new software. However, they might be an unnecessarily heavyweight solution when testing clusters, especially if these consist of multiple nodes running exactly the same software. Each VM runs a full-blown OS image. On the other hand, Linux Containers (LXC) are an efficient alternative to OS-level virtualization and can run multiple isolated systems on a single host. Docker is a wrapper around LXC, it automates the deployment of applications inside containers.
A notable advantage if you run with Docker + LXC is you can run …[Read more...]
What? Me? technophobic? I have the latest iPhone, my
office is jam packed with USB gadgets and my car is a
Prius, how much more techno friendly can one get?
That is all fine, but looking beyond fun technologies that we play with just for fun, or natural, but cool and useful, evolutions come to most of us easily. But can you honestly say (I can't) that you always look at the promise of a new technology and never have never looked at it not from the point of view of the obvious new advantages, when the technology has developed into something useful, and instead just looked at it and judged this new technology only …
This article addresses the benefits provided from database
virtualization. Before we proceed however, it is important to
explain that database virtualization does NOT mean simply running
a DBMS inside a virtual machine.
Database Virtualization, More Than Running a DBMS in a Virtual MachineWhile running a DBMS in a VM can provide advantages (and disadvantages) it is NOT database virtualization. Typical databases fuse together the data (or I/O) with the processing (CPU utilization) to operate as a single unit. Simply running that single unit in a VM does not provide the benefits detailed below. That is not database virtualization that is …

Sometimes we encounter odd application responses that seem to make no sense. One of these such issues is related to running virtual server instances (OS Containers not Para-Virtualized VMs) and attempting to back up their data to Amazon’s S3 cloud storage. For moderately sized virtual machines running MySQL databases or Python/PHP based websites and code repositories this can be an inexpensive, quickly provisioned, and easy way to provide disaster recovery backups in numerous geographic locations, since we generally want DR content to be located in a physically distant location. Nevertheless, we can encounter …[Read more...]
