Installing Galera on Amazon Linux 2 for Geo-distributed Multi-master MySQL

We recently covered Installing Galera Cluster 4 with MySQL 8 on Ubuntu 18.04 , the new Galera version for MySQL High Availability. We got a request to see if we would be able to install it on Amazon Linux 2, and the short answer is yes, we are able to deploy Galera Cluster on Amazon Linux 2.

We have even published Installing a Galera Cluster on AWS guide for Geo-distributed MySQL Multi-master clustering which covers how to install a 3-node Galera Cluster on CentOS 7 to achieve disaster recovery . It turns out, Amazon Linux 2 tends to be quite compatible with this article ( …

Amazon RDS updates February 2016

I think one of the big announcements that came out from the Amazon Web Services world in October 2015 was the fact that you could spin up instances of MariaDB Server on it.

Amazon’s Big Data Suite – Part 2

 

In Part 1 we started our study of Amazon Services and looked at Amazon EC2. In this part, we will look at other Amazon services like EMR, DynamoDB and RDS.

 

  1. 1.      Amazon Elastic Map Reduce

Amazon EMR is a web service which makes cloud computing very easy. Amazon’s EMR cluster comes preconfigured with Hadoop, which as mentioned earlier is a data processing and storage framework. This preconfiguration makes it very easy to start analysing your data in no time. Amazon EMR has applications in machine learning, financial analysis, bioinformatics etc.

 

Just like EC2, you can launch any number of EMR instances as you need and you will only be charged for the computing power you have used. EMR is preconfigured …
