Amazon RDS updates February 2016
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I think one of the big announcements that came out from the Amazon Web Services world in October 2015 was the fact that you could spin up instances of MariaDB Server on it. You would get MariaDB Server 10.0.17. As of this writing, you are still getting that (the MySQL shipping then was 5.6.23, and today you can create a 5.6.27 instance, but there were no .24/.25/.26 releases). I’m hoping that there’s active work going on to make MariaDB Server 10.1 available ASAP on the platform.

Just last week you would …

MySQL RDS Point-in-time restore
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

RDS for MySQL on AWS allows you to restore to any point in time for your backup retention period, minus the last 5 minutes or so. Restoration creates a new instance, it does not overwrite whatever instance you’re restoring. AWS’s use of the word restore is a bit confusing because restore often means “take your production database server and overwrite it with data from a backup”. As far as I can tell, Amazon never means this. When you restore, AWS creates another database server and writes all the data to the new instance, both when you’re using restoring to a point-in-time or from a DB snapshot. If you needed to switch servers, you’d have to point your database to …

A first look at RDS Aurora
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Recently, I happened to have an onsite engagement and the goal of the engagement was to move a database service to RDS Aurora. Like probably most of you, I knew the service by name but I couldn’t say much about it, so, I Googled, I listened to talks and I read about it. Now that my onsite engagement is over, here’s my first impression of Aurora.

First, let’s describe the service itself. It is part of RDS and, at first glance, very similar to a regular RDS instance. In order to setup an Aurora instance, you go to the RDS console and you …

It does not matter if Aurora performs 1x or 10x MySQL: it _is_ a big thing
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I spent the last 4 years at SkySQL/MariaDB working on versions of MySQL that could be “suitable for the cloud”. I strongly believed that the world needed a version of MySQL that could work in the cloud even better than its comparable version on bare metal. Users and administrators wanted to benefit from the use of cloud infrastructures and at the same time they wanted to achieve the same performance and overall stability of their installations on bare metal. Unfortunately, ACID-compliant databases in the cloud suffer from the issues that any centrally controlled and strictly persistent system can get when hosted on highly distributed and …

RDS Migration from 5.5 to 5.6 with mysqldump
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Amazon recently announced support for 5.6, unfortunately, direct upgrade from lower versions is not yet supported. On a recent migration work – running mysqldump flat out would’ve meant 6+hrs of downtime. How did we cut it off to 1h45m? Simple, run dump per table and pipe it directly to the new 5.6 instance in parallel using Percona Server’s mysqldump utility to take advantage of –innodb-optimize-keys.

Here’s the base script we used – of course, YMMV and make sure to optimize the destination instance as well! …
