Our data-analytics team eventually started to play with an AWS Redshift cluster instead of the MariaDB RDS service. Actually, the current task is to spin up a simple Proof of Concept Redshift’s cluster in the AWS. Let’s do it quickly, without details – if this will go to the Production, I’ll add another post with… Read More »
Vertica is a data warehouse solution intended to store petabytes amount of data. The task, for now, is to spin up a kind of Proof of Concept for Vertica on an AWS EC2 to take a closer look at its setup and to give it to data-analytics to play with it a bit. Vertica has… Read More »
A quick note mainly for myself on how to enable remote access in PostgreSQL and create its database dump. An EC2-server moved to our AWS account with one website. During an attempt to connect to the PostgreSQL running on this host – the “FATAL: Peer authentication failed for user “name”” appears. And the same error… Read More »
Currently configuring Redis server as our backend caching service and during that wrote this post with some things to pay attention at in Redis config file. Shortly enough but with links to other posts or documentation. Let’s begin with the redis-benchmark utility. Will be installed alongside with Redis service, so can be used right… Read More »
We have AWS RDS with MariaDB. The error below and its solution aren’t specific to AWS RDS and MariaDB. The next error appears during attempt to kill() a thread in MySQL: The solution is to use the mysql.rds_kill() procedure instead: Execute it: For Azure MySQL, there is a similar procedure mysql.az_kill(). Done.
The next post from the Redis replication series. Previous parts: Redis: replication, part 1 – an overview. Replication vs Sharding. Sentinel vs Cluster. Redis topology. Redis: replication, part 2 – Master-Slave replication, and Redis Sentinel Redis: replication, part 3 – redis-py and work with Redis Sentinel from Python The task now is to write… Read More »
The first part – Redis: replication, part 1 – overview. Replication vs Sharding. Sentinel vs Cluster. Redis topology. The next part – Redis: replication, part 3 redis-py and work with Redis Sentinel from Python. The whole story was started when we decided to get rid of memcached. Currently, we have memcahced and Redis running… Read More »
CodeProject Initially, it was planned to write one small post with an example how to create a Redis replication but as I read more and more details – I wanted to describe more and more about it, so eventually I split this post into two parts. In this one – some quick overview, a… Read More »
