HeatWave – A MySQL cloud feature to speed up your queries

If you have (too) long running select queries it is probably because of lack of relevant indexes, problematic schema that lead to poor queries or inadequate hardware.

That said, sometime even if you doing it right, the query execution time could be too long regarding of what the application or your users expect. It is often true for reporting, real time analytics or BI queries.

At Oracle we have developed Heatwave, that allow you to easily run high performance analytics against your MySQL database.

To be more precise, Heatwave is a massively-scalable integrated analytics engine for MySQL Database Service (MDS), the MySQL DBaaS in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).

Some key points of Heatwave:

Deploying Drupal in OCI using MDS: the easy way !

If you plan to deploy a Drupal site to OCI using MySQL Database Service, there is a very easy way to perform that deployment: using OCI’s Resource Manager !

As you know, security is something very important for Oracle in OCI, therefor, exposing the database on the Internet is not allowed.

Even if you are not using OCI, I really recommend you to follow that principle and never expose your database to Internet !

I already cover this in many previous posts. But I also understand that for people not being a sysadmin, this can be complicated the first time.

That’s why, all this can be automated using a stack to deploy in Resource Manager.

The first thing to do when you have your OCI account, it’s to download the stack from GitHub: https://github.com/lefred/oci-drupal-mds

Then in OCI’s dashboard, just …

The latest version is compatible with MySQL 8.0, however it’s not that easy to deploy. Magento has multiple dependencies like Elasticsearch for example. Additionally, the Open Source version seems to require Highly Technical knowledge to be deployed correctly.

Using MySQL Workbench with MySQL Database Service

Recently (earlier today), I blogged about how to use PHPMyAdmin with a MDS instance. I also showed at the end of the video that it’s possible to open MySQL Router on the compute instance to connect from anywhere. However this has security risks of course. Therefor, it’s not recommended.

If you want to connect from on-premise to your MDS instance you should use a VPN or a SSH tunnel. Take a look at these previous post:
