Getting started with authentication_oci There is a new means of connecting seamlessly to a MySQL Database Service instance in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. It is a method that does not require passwords, and can utilize the public key found in a OCI user’s account profile, without anyone needing to access that profile directly . It derives its access… Read More »
InnoDB Cluster has been around for what feels like a long time. It is the core platform for MySQL High Availability. InnoDB Cluster NOW extends that core feature into a platform that also enables DR support where multiple Disaster Recovery Regions are capable.
MySQL introduced the MySQL “Upgrade Checker” initially to support upgrades from MySQL 5.7 to 8.0 series. However, the continuous development initiative in the MySQL 8.0 release series has continued this tools usefulness, as it can also report on continuous delivered features throughout the MySQL 8.0 release series. Additionally, “Yes”, bug fixes are always part of that development release… Read More »
There are many users of MySQL in Cloud environment regions. It’s ideal that those MySQL instances are implemented with only private-ips in the respective Subnet. No public-ips. For that matter, all cloud infrastructure resources are ideally placed behind networks that provision only private-ips. This limits any front-end attack surface for an application stack. Certainly the up coming MySQL… Read More »
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. …
