MySQL Cloud Backup and Restore Scenarios Using Microsoft Azure

Backups are a very important part of your database operations, as your business must be secured when catastrophe strikes. When that time comes (and it will), your Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) should be predefined, as this is how fast you can recover from the incident which occurred. 

Most organizations vary their approach to backups, trying to have a combination of server image backups (snapshots), logical and physical backups. These backups are then stored in multiple locations, so as to avoid any local or regional disasters.  It also means that the data can be restored in the shortest amount of time, avoiding major downtime which can impact your company's business. 

Hosting your database with a cloud provider, such as Microsoft Azure (which we will discuss in this blog), is not an exception, you still need to prepare …

How free is your Open Source software…really?

With growing development and support costs as well as the need to maintain a sustainable business, it became apparent that maintaining the OSS release of Tungsten Replicator (TR) just wasn’t viable. Earlier this year we decided to close it down, instead focusing our efforts on improving and developing its commercial release whilst also growing our flagship commercial product, Tungsten Clustering.

For many businesses, Open Source Software (OSS) is still a very viable solution in many use cases, and I’m sure it will continue to be so for a long time, but I wanted to explore whether an OSS solution really is as free as the $0 price tag suggests.  In this blog I explore just that..

The hidden costs of OSS

MySQL Parallel Index Range Scans: One is Sometimes Better Than Two

As presented at the Percona Live Conference in Austin in May, at Alibaba we are working on adding support for parallel query execution to POLARDB for MySQL. As discussed in the presentation, we observe that parallel range scans on secondary indexes does not scale very well in MySQL. This is old news. Mark Callaghan reported this several years ago, and this does not seem to have changed. In this blog post, I will investigate what effects using a multi-processor machine have on the scalability of parallel index range scans.

I will run a variant of Query 6 of the TPC-H/ …
