This Week in Data with Colin Charles 48: Coinbase Powered by MongoDB and Prometheus Graduates in the CNCF

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

The call for submitting a talk to Percona Live Europe 2018 is closing today, and while there may be a short extension, have you already got your talk submitted? I suggest doing so ASAP!

I’m sure many of you have heard of cryptocurrencies, the blockchain, and so on. But how many of you realiize that Coinbase, an application that handles cryptocurrency trades, matching book orders, and more, is powered by MongoDB? With the hype and growth in interest in late 2017, Coinbase has had to scale. They gave an excellent talk at MongoDB World, titled MongoDB & Crypto Mania (the video is worth a watch), and they’ve also written a blog post, …

A beginner’s guide to database multitenancy

Introduction In software terminology, multitenancy is an architectural pattern which allows you to isolate customers even if they are using the same hardware or software components. Multitenancy has become even more attractive with the widespread adoption of cloud computing. A relational database system provides a hierarchy structure of objects which, typically, looks like this: catalog … Continue reading A beginner’s guide to database multitenancy →

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 44: MongoDB 4.0 and Facebook MyRocks

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

There have been two big pieces of news this week: the release of MongoDB 4.0 and the fact that Facebook has migrated the Messenger backend over to MyRocks.

MongoDB 4.0 is stable, with support for multi-document ACID transactions. I quite like the engineering chalk and talks videos on the transactions page. There are also improvements to help manage your MongoDB workloads in a Kubernetes cluster. MongoDB Atlas supports global clusters (geographically distributed databases, low latency writes, and data placement controls for regulatory …

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 43: Polyglots, Security and DataOps.Barcelona

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

This is a short working week for me due to a family emergency. It caused me to skip speaking at DataOps.Barcelona and miss hanging out with the awesome of speakers and attendees. This is the first time I’ve missed a scheduled talk, and I received many messages about my absence. I am sure we will all meet again soon.

One of the talks I was planning to give at DataOps.Barcelona will be available as a Percona webinar next week: Securing Your Database Servers from External Attacks on Thursday, …

Is Serverless Just a New Word for Cloud-Based?

Serverless is a new buzzword in the database industry. Even though it gets tossed around often, there is some confusion about what it really means and how it really works. Serverless architectures rely on third-party Backend as a Service (BaaS) services. They can also include custom code that is run in managed, ephemeral containers on a Functions as a Service (FaaS) platform. In comparison to traditional Platform as a Service (PaaS) server architecture, where you pay a predetermined sum for your instances, serverless applications benefit from reduced costs of operations and lower complexity. They are also considered to be more agile, allowing for reduced engineering efforts.

In reality, there are still servers in a serverless architecture: they are just being used, managed, and maintained outside of the application. But isn’t that a lot like what cloud providers, such as Amazon RDS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, are already …

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 40: a Peak at Blockchain, Lots of MariaDB News, then Back on the Road

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

Shortly after the last dispatch, I jetted off for a spot of vacation (which really meant I was checking out the hype behind Blockchain with a database developer lens at the Blockchain Week NYC), and then some customer visits in Seoul, which explains the short hiatus. Here’s to making this more regular as the summer approaches.

I am about to embark on a fairly long trip, covering a few upcoming appearances: Lisbon for the Percona Engineering meeting, SouthEastLinuxFest in Charlotte, the …

Percona Live 2018 Community Report

So, after a whirlwind few days, Percona Live 2018 has been and gone. There was a great energy about the conference, and it was fantastic to meet so many open source database enthusiasts and supporters. A few things that I experienced:

  • Your great willingness to share knowledge. It was a fantastic place to learn for those who have experience from a different field of technology. Almost everyone seemed to be very open and generous with their time.
  • The “superstars” from our industry are not so scary. They are as willing to be open and generous with their experience and views as any of the other attendees, and equally as interested in making new discoveries.
  • There aren’t many times you can sit down to a (community) dinner, to share food and anecdotes with people from USA, UK, Germany and Armenia at the same time. I thoroughly enjoyed the company, …

Percona Live 2018 Sessions: Microsoft Built MySQL, PostgreSQL and MariaDB for the Cloud

In this blog post on Percona Live 2018 sessions, we’ll talk with Jun Su, Principal Engineering Manager at Microsoft about how Microsoft built MySQL, PostgreSQL and MariaDB for the cloud.

Offering MySQL, PostgreSQL and MariaDB database services in the cloud is different than doing so on-premise. Latency, connection redirection, optimal performance configuration are just a few challenges. In this session, Jun Su walked us through Microsoft’s journey to not only offer these popular OSS RDBMS in Microsoft Azure, but how they are implemented in Azure as a true DBaaS. We learned about Microsoft’s Azure Database Services platform architecture, and how these services are built to scale.

In Azure, database engine instances are services managed by the Azure Service Fabric, which is a platform for …
