We started our series on MySQL Docker deploments by showing how to deploy and use MySQL locally with docker-compose in Docker Compose and App Deployment with MySQL. Docker-compose itself is limited to one machine and it does not solve cross-node networking or span multiple datacenters. This is a job for so called cluster schedulers, i.e. […]

In this post we show how to use the mysql-server Docker image for local development. We first introduce a simple example app that starts up and tries to connect to a given db until successful. We then show how to start containers for multiple MySQL versions and use our example app to connect to them. […]

One of the widely discussed technologies at Percona Live Europe was the logistics of running MySQL in containers. Containers – particularly Docker – have become a hot topic, so there was a good-sized crowd on day one of the conference for Ashraf Sharif, Senior Support Engineer with Severalnines. He presented his talk “MySQL on Docker: Containerizing the Dolphin”.
During his presentation, Ashraf shared some recommendations for best practices when setting out on containerizing MySQL. He sees the trend of moving to containers as a progression from the use of virtual hosts.
After his talk on day one of the Percona Live Europe conference, I caught up with Ashraf and asked about his presentation. I was interested in which concepts are most important for …[Read more]
But the real magic happens on the backend. This is the ecosystem that really powers your website. One writer has articulated this point very nicely as follows:
The technology and programming that “power” a site—what your end user doesn’t see but what makes the site run—is called the back end. Consisting of the server, the database, and the server-side applications, it’s the behind-the-scenes functionality—the brain of a site. …[Read more]
In this blog post, we’ll look at three different methods for installing Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM).
Percona offers multiple methods of installing Percona Monitoring and Management, depending on your environment and scale. I’ll also share comments on which installation methods we’ve decided to forego for now. Let’s begin by reviewing the three supported methods:
- Virtual Appliance
- Amazon Machine Image
We ship an OVF/OVA method to make installation as simple as …[Read more]
Recently I posted a blog on my time attending a DevOps event in Toronto. In that blog I had intended to focus on the conference and highlight some of the topics that stood out for me. In this blog though, I wanted to share what others were doing with containers like Docker, and particularly and… Read More »

InnoDB Cluster was released as GA a few weeks ago. I remember the initial announcement of the product at OOW 2016, promising a seamless solution for replication and high availability with great ease of use. I was a bit disappointed to see that, at GA release time, the InnoDB Cluster is a patchwork of three separate products (Group Replication, MySQL Router, MySQL Shell) which the users have to collect and install separately.[Read more]
