Great SaaS – starts with great software. My company has been working on this mission since 2004.
It took a few years to get our solution right – to offer a geo-distributed MySQL database backend for billion-dollar businesses. And it took a few more years to polish it.
Today, we continue to improve it day-in, day-out.
But there is no doubt the patience and perseverance pays off:
While the number of Tungsten-clustered databases in-production is in the thousands, we average only one (1) new support request per day, and, because of this, we provide an average response time less than three (3) minutes.
Not enough is said about the people and values behind great software; so that’s what I want to talk about here. Continuent is an agile, globally-distributed, remote team that is much greater than the sum of its parts. Our software helps global enterprises …[Read more]
Por si no se hubiera visto o promocionado lo suficiente, quería compartir la lista de webcasts en Español que ya hay disponible en On Demand webinars en el apartado de News & Events en mysql.com:
Sobre 1 hora de duración cada una, aquí tenéis algunos ejemplos:
Ok, so if you’re reading this, then I can guess you’ve got a MySQL InnoDB Cluster in an awkard shape, i.e. you need to restore a backup and add the instance back into the cluster, so we have all our instances again.
As it might be logical to think “ah, but I’ve only lost 1 instance, a read-only instance, so all I have to do is backup & restore the other read-only instance and I’m home free. Well I want to make it a little harder. So in this scenario, assume that we’ve lost both the READ-ONLY instances, so I need to backup my primary READ-WRITE instance.
I’ve got a 8.0.16 instance, on Oracle Linux 7.4. We’ll be looking at 2 hosts, ic1 & ic3.
We’ll be using the MySQL Enterprise Edition Server, that bundles MySQL Enterprise Backup with the rpm’s so we don’t need to install anything else.
I’ll assume you’ve got access to Oracle …[Read more]

So, typically, a Percona Live (or MySQL User) Conference blog
would start off with some mention of the fact that it’s great to
be meeting up again in Santa Clara, California, the birthplace of
the MySQL User Conference, and a continuous fixture on the yearly
MySQL community agenda.
But no, not this time!
On this occasion, the Percona Live Conference blog starts off by pointing out that for the first time since its inception (as far as I can recollect), the MySQL User Conference, i.e. Percona Live Conference (in North America) doesn’t take place in Santa Clara, but rather in Austin, Texas.
Never having been to Texas before myself, I’m looking forward to that innovation, discovering the new surroundings and seeing whether that changes anything or not to the familiar “feel” of a Percona Live / MySQL User Conference.
By the way, there’s still time to …
An easy way to setup one or multiple MySQL server deployments on a single server is to use Docker – a computer program that performs operating-system-level virtualization. Docker is simple-to-use and allows you to run multiple containers at once.
A container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another. A Docker container image is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings. (Source: https://www.docker.com/resources/what-container)
In other words, think of a container as a virtual machine without the graphical user interface (GUI). There are third-party GUI’s available, but for this post, I am going to use a …[Read more]
“Anyone who expects to have some of their work in the cloud (e.g. just about everyone) will want to consider the offerings of the cloud platform provider in any shortlist they put together for new projects. These vendors have the resources to challenge anyone already in the market.”– Merv Adrian.
I have interviewed Merv Adrian, Research VP, Data & Analytics at Gartner. We talked about the the database market, the Cloud and the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems.
Q1. Looking Back at 2018, how has the database market changed?
Merv Adrian: At a high level, much is similar to the prior year. The DBMS market returned to double digit growth in 2017 (12.7% year over year in Gartner’s estimate) to $38.8 …[Read more]
My lab environment consists of Windows 2016 Domain controller and client machines, with MySQL 8 running on Oracle Linux 7.
First I configure the database to use the server-side plugin, configure the plugin to point to the domain controller, and create a database user associated via the plugin with my Windows account.
mysql> INSTALL PLUGIN authentication_ldap_simple SONAME 'authentication_ldap_simple.so'; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.05 sec) mysql> SET GLOBAL authentication_ldap_simple_server_host='win-dc.windows.domain'; …[Read more]
