Database Tab Sweep

I miss a proper database related newsletter for busy people. There’s so much happening in the space, from tech, to licensing, and even usage. Anyway, quick tab sweep.

Paul Vallée (of Pythian fame) has been working on Tehama for sometime, and now he gets to do it full time as a PE firm, bought control of Pythian’s services business.

Replicating into Elasticsearch Webinar Followup

We had a great webinar on Wednesday looking at how we can use Tungsten Replicator for moving data into Elasticsearch, whether that’s for analytics, searching, or reporting.

You can ahead and watch the video recording of that session here

We had one question on that session, which I wanted to answer in full:

Can UPDATE and DELETE be converted to INSERT?

One of the interesting issues with replicating databases between databases is that we don’t always want the information in the same format when it goes over another side. Typically when replicating within a homogeneous environment the reason we are using replication is that we want an identical copy over on the other side of the process. In heterogeneous, especially when we move the data out to an analytics environment like Elasticsearch, we might not. That covers a whole range of …

Replicating into ElasticSearch

So here at Continuent we are working on multiple new targets for applying data using Tungsten Replicator. There are so many potential targets out there where people want to replicate data directly into a specific system, sometimes just for a specific data set, table, database or requirements.

Yesterday afternoon, I started working on ElasticSearch – this morning I have it finished!

As with all solutions, the same basic principles apply – want to pull out of MySQL or Oracle and into something else? That’s fine. Want to replicate to HDFS and ElasticSearch? We do that too!

So what does it look like?

Installation operates just our normal appliers – you just specify the datasource type (ElasticSearch) and the EL host name and port:

tools/tpm configure alpha \
--datasource-type=elasticsearch \
--install-directory=/opt/continuent \ …
