Percona XtraDB Cluster on Ceph

This post discusses how XtraDB Cluster and Ceph are a good match, and how their combination allows for faster SST and a smaller disk footprint.

My last post was an introduction to Red Hat’s Ceph. As interesting and useful as it was, it wasn’t a practical example. Like most of the readers, I learn about and see the possibilities of technologies by burning my fingers on them. This post dives into a real and novel Ceph use case: handling of the Percona XtraDB Cluster SST operation using Ceph snapshots.

If you are familiar with Percona XtraDB Cluster, you know that a full state snapshot transfer (SST) is required to provision a new cluster node. Similarly, SST can also be triggered when a cluster node happens to have a corrupted …

Upcoming Webinar August 2 10:00 am PDT: MySQL and Ceph

Join Brent Compton, Kyle Bader and Yves Trudeau on August 2, 2016 at 10 am PDT (UTC-7) for a MySQL and Ceph webinar.

Many operators select OpenStack as their control plane of choice for providing both internal and external IT services. The OpenStack user survey repeatedly shows Ceph as the dominant backend for providing persistent storage volumes through OpenStack Cinder. When building applications and repatriating old workloads, developers are discovering the need to provide OpenStack infrastructure database services. Given MySQL’s ubiquity, and it’s reliance on persistent storage, it is of utmost importance to understand how to achieve the performance demanded by today’s applications. Databases like MySQL can be incredibly IO …

Using Ceph with MySQL

Over the last year, the Ceph world drew me in. Partly because of my taste for distributed systems, but also because I think Ceph represents a great opportunity for MySQL specifically and databases in general. The shift from local storage to distributed storage is similar to the shift from bare disks host configuration to LVM-managed disks configuration.

Most of the work I’ve done with Ceph was in collaboration with folks from Red Hat (mainly Brent Compton and Kyle Bader). This work resulted in a number of talks presented at the Percona Live conference in April and the Red Hat Summit San Francisco at the end of June. I could write a lot about using Ceph with databases, and I hope this post …

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 :)

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 :)

Ceph Storage Cluster

At Data2Day 2014 in Karlsruhe I talked about the Ceph Storage Cluster and us using it to store documents in CenterDevice. These are the slides (German) I used. If you are interested in Ceph and/or look for help implementing it, don't hesitate to contact me.

One year in!

We've been fully operational for one year today. Time to take a quick breath and look back at a year that was among the most exciting in our lives, and time to look ahead to the next 12 months. In which things are likely to get even better.
