Percona Live Europe Presents: Test Like a Boss

My first talk is a tutorial Testing like a boss: Deploy and Test Complex Topologies With a Single Command, scheduled at Percona Live Europe in Amsterdam on September 30th at 13:30.

My second talk is Amazing sandboxes with dbdeployer scheduled on October 1st at 11:00. It is the same topic as the tutorial, but covers a narrow set of features, all in the *amazing* category.

The tutorial introduces a challenging topic, because when people hear testing, they imagine a troop of monkeys fiddling with a keyboard and a mouse, endlessly repeating a boring task. What I want to show is that testing is a creative activity and, with the right tools and mindset, it could be exciting and rewarding. During my work as a quality assurance engineer, I have always seen a boring task as an opportunity to automate. …

Are your Database Backups Good Enough?

In the last few years there have been several examples of major service problems affecting businesses data: outages causing data inconsistencies; unavailability or data loss, and worldwide cyberattacks encrypting your files and asking for a ransom.

Database-related incidents are a very common industry issue- even if the root cause is not the database system itself. No matter if your main relational system is MySQL, MariaDB, PostgresQL or AWS Aurora -there will be a time where you will need to make use of backups to recover to a previous state. And when that happens it will be the worst time to realize that your backup system hadn’t been working for months, or testing for the first time a cluster-wide recovery.

Forget about the backups, it is all about recovery!

Let me be 100% clear: the question is not IF data …

Meet Galera Cluster at Percona Live Europe 2019 (Amsterdam)

We (Codership, the original and continued developers and experts of Galera Cluster) participated in Austin 2019, and so it would have seemed remiss if we did not also show up at the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference Europe 2019 (that was a mouthful!) happening in Amsterdam September 30 – October 2 2019. We have a booth in the expo hall at the Hilton Amsterdam Schipol Airport, so come drop by and say hello!

 

While we do not have any talks accepted in the main program, we do have a tutorial that involves using Galera Cluster and MariaDB Server on the first day at 9am by Colin Charles.  View the whole …

Running Galera Cluster on Microsoft Azure and comparing it to their hosted services (EMEA and USA webinar)

Do you want to run Galera Cluster in the Microsoft cloud? Why not learn to setup a 3-node Galera Cluster using Microsoft Azure Compute Virtual Machines, and run it yourself. In this webinar, we will cover the steps to do this, with a demonstration of how easy it is for you to do.

In addition, we will cover why you may want to run a 3-node (or more) Galera Cluster (active-active multi-master clusters) instead of (or in addition to) using Azure Database for MySQL or MariaDB. We will also cover cost comparisons. 

Join us and learn about storage options, backup & recovery, as well as monitoring & metrics options for the “roll your own Galera Cluster” in Azure.

The MySQL High Availability Landscape and where Galera Cluster fits in (USA and EMEA Webinar)

The MySQL Server High Availability landscape provides with a slew of tools to help you ensure that your databases keep humming. Such tools are Galera Cluster, however, it is worth looking at semi-synchronous replication with failover tools, and also the usual leader-follower asynchronous replication. Today more workloads are moving to the cloud, and what failover options do you get with Amazon RDS for MySQL or even Aurora? What about the newfangled group replication and InnoDB Cluster? And let us not forget that Galera Cluster has spawned branches too!

Join Codership, the developers and experts of Galera Cluster,  as we discuss where Galera Cluster fits in and how to get best out of it.

Running Galera Cluster effectively on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and comparing it to RDS and Aurora (EMEA and USA webinar)

Do you want to run Galera Cluster in the cloud? Why not learn to setup a 3-node Galera Cluster using Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and run it yourself (3-node because this is the minimum preferred size; you can have a 5, 7, or 9 node cluster too — not in the demo though!). In this webinar, we will cover the steps to do this, with a demonstration of how easy it is for you to do. We will also cover how you may want to load balance traffic to your Galera Cluster using a proxy like ProxySQL.

In addition, we will cover why you may want to run a 3-node (or more) Galera Cluster (multi-master synchronous clusters) instead of (or in addition to) using Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) MySQL, which has the ability to have asynchronous replication (Read Replicas), and High Availability provided by DRBD (Multi-AZ). We will also cover where Galera Cluster differs from Amazon Aurora RDS for MySQL.

MySQL Community Awards 2019: the Winners

The annual MySQL Community Awards were held in Austin, Texas at Percona Live on Wednesday May 29, 2019 during the lunchtime keynotes. The MySQL Community Awards initiative is an effort to acknowledge and thank individuals and corporations for their contributions to the MySQL ecosystem. The nominations for the awards come from the community itself.  It is a from-the-community, by-the-community, and for-the-community effort. There is no corporate involvement. Awards are given in the following three categories: Community Contributor (a person), Application (an application / project), and Corporate Contributor (a company). The committee is composed of an independent group of community members of different orientation and opinion, themselves past winners or known contributors to the community. These awards are not to be confused with the ones …

Percona Live Presents: Globalizing Player Accounts with MySQL at Riot Games

During my presentation at Percona Live 2019, I’ll be talking about how Riot Games, the company behind League of Legends, migrated hundreds of millions of player accounts to unlock opportunities for us to delight players. This meant moving ten geographically distributed databases into a single global database replicated into four AWS regions. I’ll talk about some of the technical decisions we made, the expected vs actual outcomes, and lessons we learned along the way.

Migrating hundreds of millions of player records without impacting a player’s ability to manage their account and log in was a daunting task. I’ll shed some light on how we managed to handle this data migration while modifying the database schema. I’ll also go into detail on the backend …
