Log Buffer #442: A Carnival of the Vanities for DBAs

This Log Buffer Edition collects and then showers around some of the information-rich blog posts from Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL.

Oracle:

DevOpsCon 2015: Interview

Interview mit Lukas und mir auf der DevOpsCon 2015 in Berlin, kurz nach dem Talk über Private Cloud mit OpenSource.

FrOSCon 10: Private Cloud mit OpenSource

Auf der FrOSCon 10 in St. Augustin habe ich kürzlich ein Update zu unseren Erfahrungen mit dem Thema "Private Cloud mit OpenSource" gegeben. Leider sind noch nicht alle Probleme, über die letztes Jahr berichtet wurde, behoben, aber wir sind schon ein gutes Stück weiter und haben neue Stolperfallen gefunden und z. T. auch überwunden.

Leider habe ich mich mit der Zeit ein wenig getäuscht, da ich den Talk vorher schon einmal in gekürzter Form in 40 Minuten unterbringen musste, aber in der Präsentation den Countdown für die FrOSCon wieder auf 60 Minuten zu stellen vergessen hatte. Zwischenzeitlich war ich deswegen der Meinung, ziemlich hinterherzuhängen... Hoffe, es macht trotzdem ein bisschen Spaß, so blieb am Ende mehr Zeit für Fragen und Gespräche :)

High availability using MySQL in the cloud

Next Wednesday (June 10) I’ll be co-presenting a webinar on using MySQL in the cloud for High Availability (HA). Joining me will be 451 Research analyst Jason Stamper and together we’ll talk about the realities of HA using MySQL in the cloud and how vendors are responding to changing application requirements with new developments that can enhance your deployment.

We’ll also present a comparison of available solutions along with key best practices you can follow for successfully attaining HA in the cloud with MySQL. The webinar is scheduled for June 10 at 10 a.m. Pacific. Register here.

Together we’ll cover:

  • What do HA MySQL deployments in the cloud look like …

Getting started guide for OpenStack contributors

So you want to contribute to OpenStack? I can help!

For the last year or so I have been involved with OpenStack and more specifically the Trove (DBaaS) project as sort of an ambassador for Percona, contributing bits of knowledge, help and debugging wherever I could and thought I would share some of my experience with others that wanted to get involved with OpenStack development, documentation, testing, etc. Getting started with OpenStack contributions is also the idea behind my talk next month at Percona OpenStack Live 2015. (Percona Live attendees have access to OpenStack Live)

Back at the last OpenStack Conference and Design Summit in Paris last November, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the two-day …

True KVM Live Migration with OpenStack Icehouse and Ceph based VM storage

Over on the codecentric blog I just published a new post on True KVM Live Migration with OpenStack Icehouse and Ceph based VM storage, outlining the process it took me to get this actually working. There were several issues to work around, some of them bugs in OpenStack, some of them home-grown issues.

I provide a few patches to OpenStack classes as well as a description of what is actually going wrong and how to circumvent the problems. So head right over and have fun reading :)

Introducing ‘MySQL 101,’ a 2-day intensive educational track at Percona Live this April 15-16

Talking with Percona Live attendees last year I heard a couple of common themes. First, people told me that there is a lot of great advanced content at Percona Live but there is not much for people just starting to learn the ropes with MySQL. Second, they would like us to find a way to make such basic content less expensive.

I’m pleased to say we’re able to accommodate both of these wishes this year at Percona Live! We have created a two-day intensive track called “MySQL 101” that runs April 15-16. MySQL 101 is designed for developers, system administrators and DBAs familiar with other databases but not with MySQL. And of course it’s ideal for anyone else who would like to expand their professional experience to include MySQL. The sessions are designed to lay a solid foundation on many aspects of MySQL development, design and …

How to Deploy High Availability CloudStack/CloudPlatform with MariaDB Galera Cluster

Apache CloudStack is a turnkey orchestration platform to deliver IaaS clouds. As a cloud infrastructure scales to hundreds or thousands of servers, with production environments supporting multiple applications and services, high availability becomes a key requirement. Just as for OpenStack, it is possible to deploy the CloudStack management server in a multi-node installation. Since the management server uses a MySQL database to store the state of all its objects, the database could become a single point of failure. The CloudStack manual recommends MySQL replication with manual failover in the event of database loss. We believe there is a better way.

In this blog post, we’ll show you how to deploy redundant CloudStack management servers with …

Understanding reservations, concurrency, and locking in Nova

Imagine that two colleagues, Alice and Bob, issue a command to launch a new virtual machine at approximately the same moment in time. Both Alice’s and Bob’s virtual machines must be given an IP address within the range of IP addresses granted to their project. Let’s say that range is 192.168.20.0/28, which would allow for a total of 16 IP addresses for virtual machines [1]. At some point during the launch sequence of these instances, Nova must assign one of those addresses to each virtual machine.

How do we prevent Nova from assigning the same IP address to both virtual machines?

In this blog post, I’ll try to answer the above question and shed some light on issues that have come to light about the way in which OpenStack projects currently solve (and sometimes fail) to address this issue.

Demonstrating the …

It does not matter if Aurora performs 1x or 10x MySQL: it _is_ a big thing

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 natively stateless infrastructures.
In this post I am not going to talk about the improvements needed for MySQL in the cloud - I will tackle this topic in a future post. Today I'd like to focus on the business side of RDS and Aurora. 
In the last 4 years I had endless discussions over …
