Introducing xbcloud: Exponential Backoff Feature in Percona XtraBackup

Storing your data locally can impose security and availability risks. Major cloud providers have object storage services available to allow you to upload and distribute data across different regions using various retention and restore policies.

Percona XtraBackup delivers the xbcloud binary – an auxiliary tool to allow users to upload backups to different cloud providers directly.

Today we are glad to announce the introduction of the Exponential Backoff feature to xbcloud.

In short, this new feature will allow your backup upload/download to work better with unstable network connections by retrying each chunk and adding an exponential wait time in between retries, increasing the chances of completion in case of an unstable connection or network glitch.

This new functionality is available on today’s release of Percona …

How to Connect to MySQL Server Databases Remotely

Distributed environment is hardly a new notion in the world of software. For one, you no longer need to host MySQL servers and databases on the same local machine. Now you can have a dedicated server that can deliver the required level of security and performance. With the help of root/sudo user privileges, you can […]

Discovering MySQL Database Service – Episode 5 – Create a MySQL DB system from a MySQL Shell dump

MySQL, the world’s most popular open source database, is available as a managed cloud service in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) under the name of MySQL Database Service (MDS).

This is the fifth episode of “Discovering MySQL Database Service“, a series of tutorials where I will show you, step by step, how to use MySQL Database Service and some other Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services.

In this episode, we’ll see how these data can now easily be imported into a MySQL Database Service instance.

The post Discovering MySQL Database Service – Episode 5 – Create a MySQL DB system from a MySQL Shell dump first appeared on dasini.net - Diary of a MySQL experts.

Point-in-Time Recovery in OCI MDS with Object Storage – part 2

In part 1 of the series about Point-in-Time Recovery in OCI MDS, we saw how to stream the binary log to Object Storage.

In this blog post, we will see how we can restore the data up to certain point.

The high level process is simple:

  1. we need to restore the last backup just before the point we want to return to
  2. find the last GTID that was executed in that backup (not 100% mandatory but can accelerate the process)
  3. choose what is the objective:
    1. just skip one transaction (following transaction could depend on it)
    2. recover up to that transaction and skip all the following ones
  4. replay the binary logs taking in consideration the chosen option of point 3

The scenario …

Point-in-Time Recovery in OCI MDS with Object Storage – part 1

To setup point-in-time recovery for MDS using Object Storage, these are the prerequisites:

  • a MDS instance running
  • a backup plan (default)
  • a compute instance
  • an Object Storage Bucket

In this article, I won’t focus on how to create a MDS instance, a compute instance, enable backups and Object Storage Bucket, this is easy and there is already a lot of literature about them (you can also check several of my previous articles).

This is part 1 of the Point-in-Time Recovery in OCI MDS series. It’s only about streaming the binary logs to Object Store. In part 2, we will see how to use them and perform PITR.

Saving the binary logs

In fact most of the work will be to setup the compute instance to store the binary logs coming from MDS (one single compute instance could stream those binlogs from multiple MDS source).

On the compute instance we need …

Introduction to MySQL Parallel query in AWS Aurora

Aurora has a salient feature “Parallel query“, Which will be more beneficial for analytical workload environments.

Before going to deep dive on this particular feature, let us understand the basis of Aurora.

Aurora Archiecture

Key feature

  • The key feature of Aurora is simple data synchronisation among the nodes. The sync latency will be too low when compared to RDS because the synchronisation is happening on storage volumes among the nodes. Also all the server will available in different zone, even when a zone goes down we can able to maintain will other server present in other zone with auto failure.
  • Auto healing volume, Each …

Setup Disaster Recovery for OCI MySQL Database Service

When you create a MySQL Database Service instance in OCI, you have the choice between 3 types:

If you have minutes as RTO (Recovery Time Objective) in case of a failure, you must choose a High Availability instance that will deploy a Group Replication Cluster over 3 Availability Domains or 3 Fault Domains. See Business Continuity in OCI Documentation.

These are the two options:

Natural disasters happen – fires, floods, hurricanes, typhoon, earthquakes, lightning, explosion, volcanos, prolonged shortage of energy supplies or even acts of governments happen which could impede things. Having a DR copy …

PHP MySQL Connectors -- MySQLi, PDO, and/or X DevAPI

 Help!

I am preparing a presentation for the Longhorn PHP conference titled PHP & MySQL -- How do PDO, MySQLi, and X DevAPI do what they do.  This will be a comparison of using PHP with different MySQL Connectors.  As far as I can tell there are no three way comparisons of mysqli, PDO, and the X DevAPI PECL extension.  And much of the PDO versus myqli stuff looks to me like it has not aged well. 

I have good material in the raw presentation about overall features, parameters for prepared queries. And a good section on the how's and whys on prepared queries.  

But what else would you like to see in such a presentation?  I have read some postings on the web about turning off buffering (fairly simple to do).  But what else are would you like to see compared?

Discovering MySQL Database Service – Episode 4 – Dump your MySQL data into an Object Storage bucket

This is the fourth episode of “Discovering MySQL Database Service“, a series of tutorials where I will show you, step by step, how to use MySQL Database Service and some other Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services.

In the previous episode we’ve created our Virtual Cloud Network, that provides you with complete control over your cloud networking environment that we will create in this Discovering MySQL Database Service journey.

In this episode, we’ll see what is OCI Object Storage and how to export data to it from a MySQL instance using MySQL Shell.
In fact, in the process of creating a MySQL DB system, this step is optional. But it is especially useful if you want to create a MDS instance with data from a MySQL server on premise or in any public/private cloud.

The post …
