Both RDS and Aurora is a DBAAS provided by Amazon. To know more on DBAAS you can view our presentation here.

How to Set Up Replication Between AWS Aurora and an External MySQL Instance

Amazon RDS Aurora (MySQL) provides its own low latency replication. Nevertheless, there are cases where it can be beneficial to set up replication from Aurora to an external MySQL server, as Amazon RDS Aurora is based on MySQL and supports native MySQL replication. Here are some examples of when replicating from Amazon RDS Aurora to an external MySQL server can make good sense:

  • Replicating to another cloud or datacenter (for added redundancy)
  • Need to use an independent reporting slave
  • Need to have an additional physical backup
  • Need to use another MySQL flavor or fork
  • Need to failover to another cloud and back

In this blog post I will share simple step by step instructions on how to do it.

MySQL Streaming Xtrabackup to Slave Recovery

Overview

There are times when I need to restore a slave from a backup of a master or another slave, but too many times I have taken the typical approach of taking the backup on the source server and then copying it to the target server.  This takes a great deal of time, especially as your database grows in size.

These steps are going to detail how to use Netcat (nc) and Percona Xtrabackup (innobackupexec) to stream the backup from the source server to the target server, saving a great deal of time by copying the data only once to the desired location.  While the data is streaming to the target server, it’s being compressed and then uncompressed on the fly, reducing the amount of traffic going across the network by around 85% to 90% (typical backup compression ratios of MySQL Innodb I have witnessed are in this range).  I will also provide a simple script to complete these steps to give you a start at creating your …
