Please join Autodesk’s Senior DevOps Engineer, Sanjeet Deshpande, Autodesk’s Senior Database Engineer, Vineet Khanna, and Percona’s Sr. MySQL DBA, Tate McDaniel as they present Migrating to AWS Aurora, Monitoring AWS Aurora with PMM on Wednesday, August 1st, 2018, at 5:00 PM PDT (UTC-7) / 8:00 PM EDT (UTC-4).
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Aurora is one of the most popular cloud-based RDBMS solutions. The main reason for Aurora’s success is because it’s based on the InnoDB storage engine.
In this session, we will talk about how you can efficiently plan for migrating to AWS Aurora using Terraform and Percona products and solutions. We will share our Terraform code for launching AWS Aurora clusters, look at tricks for checking data consistency, verify migration paths and effectively monitor the environment using Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM).
The topics in this session include:
- Why AWS Aurora? What is the future of AWS Aurora?
- Build Aurora infrastructure
- Using Terraform (without data)
- Restore using Terraform and Percona XtraBackup (using AWS S3 bucket)
- Verify data consistency
- Aurora migration
- 1:1 migration
- Many:1 migration using Percona Server for MySQL multi-source replication
- Show benchmarks and PMM dashboard
