Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Benchmark in the Cloud

Testing functionalities and options for a database can be challenging at times, as a live production environment might be required. As I was looking for different options, I was directed by Derek Downey to this post in the Percona blog.

The blog discussed an interesting and fun tool from Percona, tpcc-mysql. I was interested in testing the tool so I decided to play around with it in an AWS EC2 server.

Benchmarking Google Cloud SQL Instances
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Google Cloud SQL is a fully managed database service that makes it easy to set-up, maintain, manage, and administer your relational MySQL databases in the cloud. Cloud SQL allows you to focus on your applications rather than administering your databases. Hosted on Google Cloud Platform, Cloud SQL provides a database infrastructure for applications running anywhere.

To evaluate the performance of Google’s Cloud SQL Instances, we ran the tpcc-mysql benchmarking utility with a scale factor of 500 warehouses. The purpose of running tpcc-mysql on each system was to determine the throughput of each instance under varying loads (number of connections or threads). …

Voting for talks at the Percona Live Data Performance Conference 2016
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

So this year the Percona Live conference has a new name — it is the “Data Performance Conference” (presumably for a much broader appeal and the fact that Percona is now in the MongoDB world as well). And the next new thing to note? You have to go through a process of “community voting”, i.e. the speaker has to promote their talks before via their own channels to see how many votes they can get (we tried this before at the MySQL & Friends Devroom at FOSDEM; in this case, please remember you also need to create a new …

Recently at Percona Live Amsterdam I gave a talk titled Databases in the Hosted Cloud (I’m told I got a 4/5 rating for this talk). It was before AWS re:Invent, so obviously some of the details in the talk have changed. For one, now there is also Amazon RDS for MariaDB. But there has also been other changes, i.e. …

Amazon RDS Migration Tool
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Amazon has just released their RDS Migration Tool, and Pythian has recently undertaken training to use for our clients. I wanted to share my initial thoughts on the tool, give some background on its internals, and provide a walk-through on the functionality it will be most commonly used for.

There are many factors to consider when evaluating cloud service providers, including cost, performance, and high availability and disaster recovery options. One of the most critical and overlooked elements of any cloud offering though, is the ease of migration. Often, weeks are spent evaluating all of the options only to discover after the choice is made that it will take …
