Percona Live 2017: Lessons Learned While Automating MySQL Deployments in the AWS Cloud

The last day of Percona Live 2017 is still going strong, with talks all the way until 4:00 pm (and closing remarks and a prize giveaway on the main stage then). I’m going to a few more sessions today, including one from Stephane Combaudon from Slice Technologies: Lessons learned while automating MySQL deployments in the AWS Cloud.

In this talk, Stephane discussed how automating deployments is a key success factor in the cloud. It is actually a great way to leverage the flexibility of the cloud. But often while automation is not too difficult for application code, it is much harder for databases. When Slice started automating their MySQL servers at Slice, they chose simple and production-proven …

Database Solutions Engineer FAQs

In this blog series, I will discuss common questions I receive as a database Solutions Engineer at Percona. In this role, I speak with a wide array of MySQL and MongoDB users responsible for both extremely large and complex environments to smaller single-server environments. Typically we are contacted when the customer is about to embark on an architecture migration or redesign, or they have performance issues in their production environment. The purpose of this blog is to put together a list of common questions I field while speaking with active MySQL and MongoDB users.

We are considering a migration to AWS. What solution is right for us: EC2, RDS, or Aurora?

We get this question a lot. Moving to AWS is a hot trend. Fellow Solution Engineer Rick Golba wrote …

Docker MySQL Replication 101

In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the basics regarding Docker MySQL replication. Docker has gained widespread popularity in recent years as a lightweight alternative to virtualization. It is ideal for building virtual development and testing environments. The solution is flexible and seamlessly integrates with popular CI tools.

 

This post walks through the setup of MySQL replication with Docker using Percona Server 5.6 images. To keep things simple we’ll configure a pair of instances and override only the most important variables for replication. You can add whatever other variables you want to override in the configuration files for each instance.

Note: the configuration described here is suitable for development or testing. We’ve also used the …

Improving Percona XtraDB Cluster SST startup with Google Compute Engine snapshots

As the need for information grows so does the size of data we need to keep in our databases. SST is unavoidable for spinning up new nodes in a PXC cluster and when datasets reach the “terra-byte” range this becomes ever more cumbersome requiring many hours for a new node to synchronize.

More often that not, it is necessary to implement custom “wsrep_sst” scripts or resort to manual synchronization processes. Luckily cloud providers provide convenient methods to leverage disk snapshots that can be used to quickly transfer data between nodes.

This article deals with the actions needed to perform a snapshot on Google’s Compute Engine (GCE) infrastructure. A similar method can be used on AWS EC2 instances using EBS snapshots or any other form of snapshots such as LVM, ZFS or SAN. The steps described can be …
