This Week in Data with Colin Charles 12: Open Source Summit Europe and Open Source Entrepreneur Network

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

This week was exciting from a Percona exposure standpoint. We were at Open Source Summit Europe. I gave two talks and participated in a panel, as the co-located event for the Open Source Entrepreneur Network happened on the last day as well. We had a booth, and it was great to hang out and talk with my colleagues Dorothée Wuest and Dimitri Vanoverbeke as well as all the attendees that popped by.

Community Matters

Building on community

Percona is very committed to open source database software. We think of ourselves as unbiased champions of open source database solutions. With that, we also carry a responsibility to the open source database community – whether MySQL®, MongoDB®, ProxySQL or other open source database technology. We’ve seen that, and taken action by hiring a Community Manager.

That’s me. Which is great… For me!

And my job, in a nutshell, is to help to make our community great for you. By building on the good stuff that’s been done in the past and finding ways to do more.

The common thread tying the community together is the sharing of information, experience, and knowledge. Hundreds of you have taken part in Percona Live or Percona Live Europe — thank you for that! …

Wearing out an SSD

I use Intel NUC servers at home to test open-source databases for performance and efficiency. The servers have an SSD for the database and that is either a Samsung 960 EVO or a Samsung 850 EVO. It is time to replace the 960 EVO after about 5 months of heavy usage. I test MySQL (MyRocks, InnoDB, MyISAM) and MongoDB (MongoRocks, WiredTiger and mmapv1). If I limited myself to MyRocks and MongoRocks then the storage devices would last much longer courtesy of better write efficiency of an LSM versus a B-Tree.

I have 3 servers with the 960 EVO and I will replace the SSD in all of them at the same time. I assume that device performance changes as it ages, but I have never tried to quantify that. For the 850 EVO I will …

Percona Monitoring and Management 1.4.0 Is Now Available

Percona announces the release of Percona Monitoring and Management 1.4.0.

This release introduces the support of external Prometheus exporters so that you can create dashboards in the Metrics monitor even for the monitoring services other than those provided with PMM client packages. To attach an existing external Prometheus exporter, run pmm-admin add external:metrics NAME_OF_EXPORTER URL:PORT.

The list of attached monitoring services is now available not only in the tabular format but also as a JSON file to enable automatic verification of your configuration. To view the list of monitoring services in the JSON format run pmm-admin list --json.

In this release, Prometheus and Grafana have been upgraded. Prometheus

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 11: Velocity EU London and Open Source Summit Europe

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

I spent all of this week at O’Reilly Velocity EU London. I gave a tutorial, a talk and generally networked with attendees (besides my normal evangelical duties). I’ll write some thoughts on it later (probably in a couple of weeks, as Open Source Summit Europe happens next week – and Percona has a booth there).

This will be a quick, short post.

A few security releases this past week, with some bug fixes as well:

Percona Blog Poll: How Do You Currently Host Applications and Databases?

Percona latest blog poll asks how you currently host applications and databases. Select an option below, or leave a comment to clarify your deployment!

With the increased need for environments that respond more quickly to changing business demands, many enterprises are moving to the cloud and hosted deployments for applications and software in order to offload development and maintenance overhead to a third party. The database is no exception. Businesses are turning to using database as a service (DBaaS) to handle their data needs.

DBaaS provides some obvious benefits:

  • Offload physical infrastructure to another vendor. It is the responsibility of whoever is providing the DBaaS service to maintain the physical environment – including hardware, software and best …

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 10: MariaDB and Upcoming Apearances

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

Beyond spending time getting ready for Velocity and Open Source Summit Europe this week, there was some feature testing this week that compared MySQL and MariaDB. Naturally, a long report/blog is coming soon. Stay tuned.

Releases

I reckon a lot of folks are swamped after Percona Live Europe Dublin and Oracle OpenWorld, so the releases in the MySQL universe are a bit quieter.
