Have you registered for Percona Live Europe Dublin? We’ve more or less finalized the schedule, and the conference grid looks 100% full. We’re four weeks away, so I suggest you register ASAP!

I should also mention that no event can be pulled off without sponsors, so thank you sponsors of Percona Live Europe 2017. I sincerely hope to see more sign up. Feel free to ask me more about it, or just check out our sponsor prospectus.

Releases

  • MariaDB/MySQL Replication Manager 1.1.1 release. There was recently a talk accepted at Percona Live Europe 2017 that referenced “MRM”. I was asked about it, and I think this tool needs more marketing! MRM is a high availability solution to manage MariaDB 10.x and MySQL and Percona Server for MySQL 5.7 GTID replication topologies. It has a new 1.1.1 release that provides improvements for MariaDB Server and MariaDB MaxScale (this tool itself gained MySQL GTID support back in April 2017). Do you use MRM?
  • Colin CharlesPercona Server 5.7.19-17 is now released! Why is this exciting? Because it comes with the MyRocks storage engine! Yes, the engine is experimental, and no, it isn’t recommended for production – but why not get started with the MyRocks Introduction? I tried the installation guide and got everything started very quickly. Read about the current limitations and differences between Percona MyRocks and Facebook MyRocks (considering you’ll really want to use MyRocks in a shipping release – Facebook’s MyRocks requires compiling their tree, and this is really not the recommended way to get going!).

Feedback

bet365 now purchases Basho assets. The good news for Riak users? “It is our intention to open source all of Basho’s products and all of the source code that they have been working on.” The Register covers this, too.

I look forward to feedback/tips via e-mail at colin.charles@percona.com, or on Twitter @bytebot.

    Thanks for mentioning the Replication Manager for MySQL and MariaDB last release.
    The GitHub log doesn’t say much in itself, so here are the full release notes:

    It’s amazing that digital artists can create a sculpture on the spot with photos. Your comments about a potential hologram are interesting as well.
