Geo-distributed multi-master Galera Cluster on Amazon EC2. Join Codership at Amazon re:Invent Las Vegas 26-29 November

Implementing Galera Cluster on Amazon EC2  provides several advantages for companies. Multi-master clustering comes out of the box as a default in Galera. Users can read and write from any database providing fast local writes and reads. Galera handles conflicts automatically if your application is writing to the same row. Nodes can be added and deleted on the fly if you need more capacity and elasticity. New nodes can join automatically. In the case data center downtime Galera provides disaster recovery and Galera Cluster takes care of the split brain situation too. Automated failover and recovery allow the database to continually service the application transparently.

Meet the developers and experts of Galera Cluster in Amazon re:Invent Las Vegas 26-29 November. You can find us at Venetian hotel, booth number 738.

Percona Live Europe Presents: ClickHouse at Messagebird: Analysing Billions of Events in Real-Time*

We’ll look into how Clickhouse allows us to ingest a large amount of data and run complex analytical interactive queries at MessageBird,. We also present the business needs that brought ClickHouse to our attention and detail the journey to its deployment. We cover the problems we faced, and how we dealt with them. We talk about our current Cloud production setup and how we deployed and use it.

We are really enthusiastic to share a use case of Clickhouse, how it helped us to scale our analytics stack with the good, the bad and the ugly.

The talk could be useful to newcomers and everyone wondering if Clickhouse could be useful to them.

What we’re looking forward to…

There are many talks, but these are among the top ones we’re looking forward to in particular:

Percona Live Europe Presents: pg_chameleon MySQL to PostgreSQL Replica Made Easy

What excites me is the possibility that this tool is giving to other people. Also, the challenges I’ve faced and the new ideas for the future releases are always source of interest that keep me focused on the project. So I’m looking forward to sharing this with the conference delegates.

pg_chameleon can achieve two tasks in a very simple way. It can setup a permanent replica between MySQL and PostgreSQL, giving the freedom of choice for the right tool for the right job, or can migrate multiple schemas to a PostgreSQL database.

Anybody that want to extend their database experience, taking the best of the two worlds, or who is seeking a simple way to migrate data with minimal downtime will find the presentation interesting.

What else am I looking forward to at Percona Live Europe?

I’m …

Percona Live Europe Presents: MariaDB 10.4 Reverse Privileges (DENY)

One of the most common questions about privileges in MySQL and MariaDB is how would a user revoke access to a particular table, in a large database with hundreds or thousands of tables, while keeping the rest available. Currently, there is no easy solution. Just grant access to everything else, individually. Not only does this reduce server performance, but is a nightmare to maintain. Reverse privileges solve this and more. And they are simple to explain to new admins too! So I look forward to sharing the knowledge during my presentation at PLE18.

DBAs would benefit from this talk the most. As it is a feature still under development, we are open for input from the community. Tell us what you think we should do to make this feature the best it can be.

What I’m looking forward to…

It will be quite …

Percona Live Europe Presents: Need for speed – Boosting Apache Cassandra’s performance using Netty

My talk is titled Need for speed: Boosting Apache Cassandra’s performance using Netty. Over the years that I have worked in the software industry, making code run fast has fascinated me. So, naturally when I first started contributing to Apache Cassandra, I started looking opportunities to improve its performance. My talk takes us through some interesting challenges within a distributed system like Apache Cassandra and various techniques to significantly improve its performance. Talking about performance is incredibly exciting because you can easily quantify and see the results. Making improvements to the database’s performance not only improves the user experience but also reflects positively on the organization’s bottom line. It also has the added …

Percona Live Europe Presents: MariaDB System-Versioned Tables

System-versioned tables, or temporal tables, are a typical feature of proprietary database management systems like DB2, Oracle and SQL Server. They also appeared at some point in PostgreSQL, but only as an extension; and also in CockroachDB, but in a somewhat limited fashion.

The MariaDB® implementation is the first appearance of temporal tables in the MySQL ecosystem, and the most complete implementation in the open source world.

My presentation will be useful for analysts, and some managers, who will definitely benefit from learning how to use temporal tables. Statistics about how data evolves over time is an important part of their job. This feature will allow them to query data as it was at a certain point in time. Or to query how data changed over a period, including rows that were …

Percona Live Europe Tutorial: Query Optimization and TLS at Large Scale

For Percona Live Europe this year, I got accepted a workshop on query optimization and a 50-minute talk covering TLS for MySQL at Large Scale, talking about our experiences at the Wikimedia Foundation.

Workshop

The 3-hour workshop on Monday, titled Query Optimization with MySQL 8.0 and MariaDB 10.3: The Basics is a beginners’ tutorial–though dense in content. It’s for people who are more familiar with database storage systems other than InnoDB for MySQL, MariaDB or Percona Server. Or who, already familiar with …

Globalizing Player Accounts at Riot Games While Maintaining Availability

The Player Accounts team at Riot Games needed to consolidate the player account infrastructure and provide a single, global accounts system for the League of Legends player base. To do this, they migrated hundreds of millions of player accounts into a consolidated, globally replicated composite database cluster in AWS. This provided higher fault tolerance and lower latency access to account data. In this talk by Tyler Turk (Infrastructure Engineer, Riot Games), we discuss this effort to migrate eight disparate database clusters into AWS as a single composite database cluster replicated in four different AWS regions, provisioned with terraform, and managed and operated by Ansible. …

Percona Live Europe Tutorial: Elasticsearch 101

For Percona Live Europe, I’ll be presenting the tutorial Elasticsearch 101 alongside my colleagues and fellow presenters from ObjectRocket Alex Cercel, DBA, and Mihai Aldoiu, Data Engineer. Here’s a brief overview of our tutorial.

Elasticsearch® is well known as a highly scalable search engine that stores data in a structure optimized for language based searches but its capabilities and use cases don’t stop there. In this tutorial, we’ll give you a hands-on introduction to Elasticsearch and give you a glimpse at some of the fundamental concepts. We’ll cover various administrative topics like …
