Moving data in real-time into Amazon Redshift follow-up Questions

We had a really great session yesterday during the webinar on Amazon Redshift replication, but sadly ran out of time for questions. So as promised, let’s try and answer the questions asked now!

Are you going to support SAP IQ as a target ?

This is the first request we’ve ever received, and so therefore there are no firm plans for supporting it. As a target, SAP IQ supports a JDBC interface, and therefore is not hugely complicated to achieve compared to more complex, customer appliers.

Can you replicate from SAP ASE ?

No, and no current plans.

What about latin1 character ? Is it supported ?

Yes, although the default mode is for us to use UTF-8 for all extract and apply jobs. You can certainly change the character set, although leaving UTF-8 should also work.

Is it a problem not to have primary keys on Redshift ?

The Tarantool SQL Alpha

Tarantool, a Lua application server plus NoSQL DBMS, is now an SQL DBMS too, in alpha version 1.8. I was interested in how the combination "Lua + NoSQL + SQL" works. Disclaimer: I do paid work related to Tarantool but it has nothing to do with this blog.

First let's verify that it's really SQL. The illustrations are all unretouched screenshots from ocelotgui for Windows, connected to a Tarantool 1.8 server on Linux, which I built from a source download on github.

Example of SELECT

Yes, the "history" below the query window shows successful CREATE and INSERT statements, the "result set" at the bottom shows a successful SELECT statement's output. A close look at the clauses shows that there's support for constraints, foreign keys, triggers, ... and so on. In all, it's a reasonable subset of the SQL standard, pretty well …

What Are Your Cloud Data Plans? Help Inform the Community, Take Percona’s Survey

Fill out a quick survey on your cloud data plans.

Today, keeping your enterprise agile and flexible is not just an advantage, it is a requirement. Many of the systems and processes once controlled by businesses onsite are moving offsite to “service” models. This includes Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Database as a Service (DBaaS), etc.

These services are usually referred to as being in the cloud. The enterprise using the service doesn’t maintain or manage the infrastructure of the service in question.

Migrating database workloads to the cloud can be a vital part of improving customer experience, gaining deeper business insights and increasing efficiency. More enterprises are …

Demystifying Sequence Numbers (seqno) in Percona XtraDB Cluster

In this blog post, we’ll look at how sequence numbers work in Percona XtraDB Cluster.

Introduction

Percona XtraDB Cluster uses multiple sequence numbers (seqno), each having a special role to play. Let’s try to understand the significance of each sequence number.

global_seqno

An active Percona XtraDB Cluster cluster has multiple write-sets (transactions) generated from one or more nodes. These transactions then get replicated to other nodes of the cluster. Each write-set/transaction should have a unique identity across the cluster. global_seqno helps serve this identity. Given write-set will have the same global_seqno on …

Analytical Replication Performance from MySQL to Vertica on MemCloud

I’ve recently been trying to improve the performance of the Vertica replicator, particularly in the form of the of the new single schema replication. We’ve done a lot in the new Tungsten Replicator 5.3.0 release to improve (and ultimately support) the new single schema model.

As part of that, I’ve also been personally looking to Kodiak MemCloud as a deployment platform. The people at Kodiak have been really helpful (disclaimer: I’ve worked with some of them in the past). MemCloud is a high-performance cloud platform that is based on hardware with high speed (and volume) RAM, SSD and fast Ethernet connections. This means that even without any adjustment and tuning you’ve got a fast platform to work on.

However, if you are willing to put in some extra time, you can tune things further. Once you have a super quick …
