Percona Live 2018 Sessions: Ghostferry – the Swiss Army Knife of Live Data Migrations with Minimum Downtime

In this blog post on Percona Live 2018 sessions, we’ll talk with Shuhoa Wu, Software Developer for Shopify, Inc. about how Ghostferry is the Swiss Army knife of live data migrations.

Existing tools like mysqldump and replication cannot migrate data between GTID-enabled MySQL and non-GTID-enabled MySQL – a common configuration across multiple cloud providers that cannot be changed. These tools are also cumbersome to operate and error-prone, thus requiring a DBA’s attention for each data migration. Shopify’s team introduced a tool that allows for easy migration of data between MySQL databases with constant downtime on the order of seconds.

Inspired by gh-ost, their tool is named Ghostferry and allows application developers at Shopify to migrate data without assistance …

Percona Live 2018 Sessions: Microsoft Built MySQL, PostgreSQL and MariaDB for the Cloud

In this blog post on Percona Live 2018 sessions, we’ll talk with Jun Su, Principal Engineering Manager at Microsoft about how Microsoft built MySQL, PostgreSQL and MariaDB for the cloud.

Offering MySQL, PostgreSQL and MariaDB database services in the cloud is different than doing so on-premise. Latency, connection redirection, optimal performance configuration are just a few challenges. In this session, Jun Su walked us through Microsoft’s journey to not only offer these popular OSS RDBMS in Microsoft Azure, but how they are implemented in Azure as a true DBaaS. We learned about Microsoft’s Azure Database Services platform architecture, and how these services are built to scale.

In Azure, database engine instances are services managed by the Azure Service Fabric, which is a platform for …

Percona Live 2018 Sessions: Query Optimizer – MySQL vs. PostgreSQL

In this blog post on Percona Live 2018 sessions, we’ll talk with Christian Antognini, Senior Principal Consultant at Trivadis about the differences between MySQL and PostgreSQL query optimizers.

MySQL and PostgreSQL are two of the most popular open-source relational databases. Why would you pick one over the other to support your applications? Of course, it depends on the use case, environment and workload. To help with choosing between them, the people at Trivadis ran a comparison of their query optimizers. The aim of this session was to summarize the outcome of the comparison. Specifically, to point out optimizer-related strengths and weaknesses.

Christian spent a lot of time looking at the differences in indexing with regard to sorts, keys and partitioning, as well as joins and merges.

Both …

Percona Live 2018 Sessions: MySQL at Twitter

We already started today with a great set of keynote sessions, and now the breakout sessions have begun in earnest. I’ve been looking in on the talks and stopping to talk with some of the presenters.
