A First Look at Amazon RDS Proxy

At re:Invent in Las Vegas in December 2019, AWS announced the public preview of RDS Proxy, a fully managed database proxy that sits between your application and RDS. The new service offers to “share established database connections, improving database efficiency and application scalability”.

But one of the benefits that caught my eye is the ability to reduce the downtime in case of an instance failure and a failover. As for the announcement:

In case of a failure, RDS Proxy automatically connects to a standby database instance while preserving connections from your application and reduces failover times for RDS and Aurora multi-AZ databases by up to 66%”

You can read more about the announcement and the new service on the AWS …

Debezium MySQL Snapshot For AWS RDS Aurora From Backup Snaphot

I have published enough Debezium MySQL connector tutorials for taking snapshots from Read Replica. To continue my research I wanted to do something for AWS RDS Aurora as well. But aurora is not using binlog bases replication. So we can’t use the list of tutorials that I published already. In Aurora, we can get the binlog file name and its position from its snapshot of the source Cluster. So I used a snapshot for loading the historical data, and once it’s loaded we can resume the CDC from the main cluster.

Requirements:

  1. Running aurora cluster.
  2. Aurora cluster must have binlogs enabled.
  3. Make binlog retention period to a minimum 3 days(its a best practice).
  4. Debezium connector should be able to access both the clusters.
  5. Make sure you have different security …

Handling Bi-Directional Replication between Tungsten Clusters and AWS Aurora

Overview The Skinny

In this blog post, we explore the correct way to implement bi-directional Tungsten Replication between AWS Aurora and Tungsten Clustering for MySQL databases.

Background The Story

When we are approached by a prospect interested in using our solutions, we are proud of our pre-sales process by which that we engage at a very deep technical level to ensure the we provide the best possible solution to meet with the prospect’s requirements. This involves an in-depth hands-on POC, in addition to the significant time and effort we spend building and testing the solution architectures in our lab environment as part of the proposal process.

From time to time, we are presented with requirements that are not always quite so straight forward. Just recently we faced such a situation. A …

Create Aurora Read Replica With AWS CLI/Lambda Python

Today I was working for a scaleable solution in Aurora. Im going to publish that blog post soon in Searce Blog. As a part of this solution, I want to create Aurora read replicas programmatically. So we have done the create aurora read replica with AWS CLI and Lambda with Python. If you refer the AWS Doc, they mentioned there is no separate module for creating Aurora Read replica in boto3 or cli. Instead we can use create-db-instance. Many people may confused with this term. This blog will help them to create aurora read replicas using AWS CLI and Lambda.

Required Permission:

If you are running this code via lambda then you can use the below policy.

  • Lambda - Create a new role for lambda and attach inline policy
  • EC2 Role - Create a new …

Will IO Size Affect your RDS Performance?​

During our recent consulting with one of our client, We came across an interesting issue on RDS. The baseline is that “Low IO size on your RDS instance can affect your DB performance”.  Yes, It’s IO size, Not IOPS.

We had our production systems running on RDS MySQL with a single master, 3 replicas. All instances are of same type db.m4.4xlarge with same parameter group configuration and the disk size is 1.5 TB. According to the AWS user guide, each of these instances can support up to 4500 (sustained IOPS) guaranteed IOPS.

Find below the Write IOPS graph for all the instances.

It’s understood that Write IOPS / pattern on Master can vary when compared with Slave, due to a lot of factors like binlog row format, log writing etc. But it has to be almost similar for all the slaves given that it …

Migrate MySQL data to RDS/Aurora Using Xtrabackup

In this blog, I will provide a step by step procedure to migrate from on-premise MySQL to Amazon RDS/Aurora using Percona-xtrabackup

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

When you are having a database in size of few GB, it would be very convenient to take a logical backup using a logical backup tool such as Mysqldump or Mydumper and restore it Amazon RDS/Aurora easily. But this is not the case when you are having a data size of a few hundred GB or TB, Where the logical backup and restore is very painful and time-consuming. To overcome this we can use …

Tungsten Clustering versus AWS RDS/MySQL

Enterprises require high availability for their business-critical applications. Even the smallest unplanned outage or even a planned maintenance operation can cause lost sales, productivity, and erode customer confidence. Additionally, updating and retrieving data needs to be robust to keep up with user demand.

Let’s take a look at how Tungsten Clustering helps enterprises keep their data available and globally scalable, and compare it to Amazon’s RDS running MySQL (RDS/MySQL).

Replicas and Failover What does RDS do?

Having multiple copies of a database is ideal for high availability. RDS/MySQL approaches this with “Multi-AZ” deployments. The term “Multi-AZ” here is a bit confusing, as enabling this simply means a single “failover replica” will be created in a different availability zone from the primary database instance. …

MySQL Adventures: GTID Replication In AWS RDS

You all heard about that today AWS announced that RDS is started to support GTID Transactions. I’m a great fan of RDS but not for GTID. Since RDS has better settings and configurations to perform well. Many of you people read about the AWS What’s new page regarding GTID. But here we are going to talk about the actual benefits and drawbacks.

RDS supports GTID on MySQL 5.7.23 or later. But AWS released this version on Oct10 (two days before). So, for now, this is the only version which supports GTID.

NOTE: GTID supports only for RDS, its not available for Aurora. It may support in future)
Update : 27 March 2019: Aurora MySQL 5.7 supports GTID. Find the relavent link below.

Before configuring the GTID, lets have a look at what is GTID?

  • GTID stands for Global Transaction Identifier.
  • It’ll generate a …
