Running MySQL / Percona Server in Kubernetes with a Custom Config

As we continue the development of our Percona Operators to simplify database deployment in Kubernetes (Percona Server for MongoDB Operator 0.3.0 and Percona XtraDB Cluster Operator 0.3.0), one very popular question I get is: how does deployment in Kubernetes affect MySQL performance? Is there a big performance penalty? So I plan to look at how to measure and compare the performance of Kubernetes deployments to bare metal deployments. Kubernetes manages a lot of infrastructure resources like network, storage, cpu, and memory, so we need to look individually at different components.

To begin: I plan to run a single MySQL (Percona Server) instances in …

How To Test and Deploy Kubernetes Operator for MySQL(PXC) in OSX/macOS?

In this blog post, I’m going to show you how to test Kubernetes locally on OSX/macOS. Testing Kubernetes without having access to a cloud operator in a local lab is not as easy as it sounds. I’d like to share some of my experiences in this adventure. For those who have already experienced in Virtualbox & Vagrant combination, I can tell you that it doesn’t work. Since Kubernetes will require virtualization, setting another virtual environment within another VirtualBox has several issues. After trying to bring up a cluster for a day or two, I gave up my traditional lab and figured out that Kubernetes has an alternate solution called minikube.

Installation

If your OSX/macOS doesn’t have brew I strongly recommend …

The Future Of The Application Stack

Containers are eating the world. If you have built and deployed an application in production over the last few years, the odds are that you have deployed your code in containers. You might have created and deployed individual containers (Docker, Linux LXC, etc.) directly in the beginning, but quickly switched over to a container orchestration technology like Kubernetes (K8s) or Swarm when you needed to coordinate multi-node deployments and high availability (HA). In this container-driven world, what will the future of the application stack look like? Let’s start with what we need from this “future” application stack.

What Do We Need From This Future Application Stack?

Deploying MySQL on Kubernetes with a Percona-based Operator

In the context of providing managed WordPress hosting services, at Presslabs we operate with lots of small to medium-sized databases, in a DB-per-service model, as we call it. The workloads are mostly reads, so we need to efficiently scale that. The MySQL® asynchronous replication model fits the bill very well, allowing us to scale horizontally from one server—with the obvious availability pitfalls—to tens of nodes. The next release of the stack is going to be open-sourced.

As we were already using Kubernetes, we were looking for an operator that could automate our DB deployments and auto-scaling. Those available were doing synchronous replication using MySQL group replication or Galera-based replication. Therefore, we decided to write our own operator.

Solution architecture

Without question, Kubernetes is the most popular container orchestration platform. But can it handle databases? I think so, and in this webinar, I will show you how it does it. This talk presents a quick overview of the persistent storage options (the most critical part of data storage) and then what it takes to run highly available MySQL …

Running Percona XtraDB Cluster in Kubernetes/OpenShift

Kubernetes, and its most popular distribution OpenShift, receives a lot of interest as a container orchestration platform. However, databases remain a foreign entity, primarily because of their stateful nature, since container orchestration systems prefer stateless applications. That said, there has been good progress in support for StatefulSet applications and persistent storage, to the extent that it might be already comfortable to have a production database instance running in Kubernetes. With this in mind, we’ve been looking at running Percona XtraDB Cluster in Kubernetes/OpenShift.

While there are already many examples on the Internet of how to start a single MySQL instance in Kubernetes, for serious usage we need to provide:

  • High Availability: how can we guarantee availability …

Deploy MySQL on Oracle’s High-Performance Cloud (Step-by-step Guide)

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is Oracle’s second-generation cloud infrastructure. These new datacenters were built with the latest high-performance servers (Oracle’s X7 Servers) and were designed to eliminate network and CPU oversubscription. Due to high-performance systems and the multiple availability domains (ADs) in each region, these are the preferred environments for deploying MySQL. Since MySQL deploys on Compute services (IaaS), look for “Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute” (not Classic) on this region map.

Beyond the benefits of the second-generation datacenters, why deploy MySQL on Oracle’s cloud? Here’s a few of reasons people are choosing MySQL on OCI:

  • No vendor lock-in: pay minimal or no egress charges and directly access your binary data files. Getting your data out of other clouds can be tedious and expensive. …
