Deploy MySQL on Oracle’s High-Performance Cloud (Step-by-step Guide)

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is Oracle’s second-generation cloud infrastructure. These new datacenters were built with the latest high-performance servers (Oracle’s X7 Servers) and were designed to eliminate network and CPU oversubscription. Due to high-performance systems and the multiple availability domains (ADs) in each region, these are the preferred environments for deploying MySQL. Since MySQL deploys on Compute services (IaaS), look for “Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Compute” (not Classic) on this region map.

Beyond the benefits of the second-generation datacenters, why deploy MySQL on Oracle’s cloud? Here’s a few of reasons people are choosing MySQL on OCI:

  • No vendor lock-in: pay minimal or no egress charges and directly access your binary data files. Getting your data out of other clouds can be tedious and expensive. …

Going for Go and Sticking with SQL

Why we’re switching from PHP to Go. Plus, why we’re happy with MySQL. LefT: ElePHPant (Vincent Pontier). Right: Gophers (golang.org).

At first, we thought that sticking with a familiar language was the responsible thing to do — we’re a small team, already engaged in two adventurous moves: a switch to microservices and a full rebuild of our legacy web application, a high-traffic game platform.

However, in the end we decided to go all the way and dropped PHP for Go. In this post we’ll explain why. We’ll also share some thoughts about databases within our microservices architecture.

Microservices and …

Kaj Shoot Out on Cloud Computing

I'm sitting in Kaj Arnö's Cloud Computing Shoot Out here in the MySQL Confernce & Expo. Great panel, great discussion! The important question, always, is about business models related to storage vs. compute clouds.

Cloud Computing - Executive Seminar

Tomorrow, I'll be attending the Executive Seminar on Cloud Computing at NASDAQ MarketSite (NY). Speakers include Dr. Werner Vogels and Mårten Mickos (ex-CEO of MySQL). Big thanks to Amazon and RightScale who were able to accommmodate my RSVP even when the registration had formally closed.

I hope to be able to catch up with Mårten Mickos during the event. In case I do succeed in catching up, is there any question you want me to ask him? You can email me or post a comment.

It's funny that the event site still shows Mårten's title as "SVP of Sun Microsystems’ Database Group."
