Testing Percona Replication Manager (prm) with Vagrant

If you have recently attended some Percona Live events or if you have checked some slides from Yves Trudeau, you may have heard about Percona Replication Manager (PRM), a new high availability tool for MySQL.

Some lessons from MySQL Conference 2012

The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2012 is over. Together with the SkySQL solutions day, it has kept me occupied for 4 full days, from early morning to late at night.

I have to say that I am pleased. The quality of the organization was very high, with a very good lineup of speakers and an excellent technical support.

It's *that time* of the year

Even without attending the Percona Live conference in Santa Clara, you could tell something big was going on.

One way of measuring it was by looking at the flow of announcements. Here's a brief list, and apologies if I've missed anyone:

An excellent conference (5 out of 5 stars)

I wanted to extend thanks as others have also about the excellent annual MySQL Conference, now a Percona Live event. This was easily the best run, attended and energetic event in at least the past 3 years. With over a 1000 attendees a well stocked exhibitors hall (and good involvement in the hall), and good talks; there was just a great community vibe. To Terry, Kortney and all Percona staff involved, well done. The event ran on time, I personally did not see or hear of any issues.

Percona Live MySQL Conference 2012

It is the day after the conference ended and I feel great. Two days of percona live and a day of skysql, drizzle and sphynx presentations were just awesome. I can say that IMHO it is one of the best MySQL conferences since I started attending four years ago. Well done Percona.

Testing Percona XtraDB Cluster with Vagrant

For those wanting to become more familiar with Percona XtraDB Cluster or if you just one to test its capabilities, I have prepared an easy Vagrant setup ready to deploy.

It contains the puppet recipes to install and configure a cluster of 3 nodes and a load balancer (glb) running on the first node.

To be able to test it, these are the prerequisites you need to have on your system:

Another great MySQL 5.6 milestone release

Oracle has released another huge batch of improvements to MySQL slated for MySQL 5.6. The pace of innovation in MySQL is accelerating rapidly and the improvements are impressive. I have not read all of the blog posts thoroughly yet, but I’ve skimmed and it looks fantastic.
