Oracle Introduces MySQL Fabric, Simplifying High Availability and Scalability With MySQL

Automatic Failover and Data Sharding Now Available for Web and Cloud Applications

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- Oracle (NYSE: ORCL)

News Summary
Meeting the demands of today's web and cloud applications, Oracle announces the general availability of MySQL Fabric. MySQL Fabric provides an integrated system that makes it simpler to manage groups of MySQL databases. It delivers both high availability -- via failure detection and failover -- and scalability through automated data sharding.

News Facts

  • Continuing to drive MySQL innovation, Oracle announced the general availability of MySQL Fabric, an open source framework to manage farms of MySQL servers.
  • Available for download at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/fabric/, this integrated and extensible system makes it easier to scale out or add high availability to MySQL applications.

MySQL Fabric Capabilities

  • Automatic failure detection and failover when used with MySQL Replication for high availability, including:
    • Monitoring of the master database; if the server fails, MySQL Fabric selects one of the slave databases and promotes it to be the new master.
    • Automatic routing of transactions to the current master and load-balancing of queries across slave databases. Topology and state of the servers are transparent to the application.
  • Automated data sharding and re-sharding make it easier for development and operations, or DevOps, teams to manage the process. This enables users to:
    • Allow tables to be sharded for scale-out of both reads and writes.
    • Select which tables should be sharded and specify the columns to be used as sharding keys, including whether to use a HASH or RANGE based mapping.
    • Move existing shards to new servers or split them into multiple shards.
  • Extensions to PHP, Python, and Java connectors allow transactions and queries to be routed directly to the correct MySQL Server, eliminating the extra latency caused by passing through a proxy.

Supporting Quote

  • "Many of the world's largest websites and cloud-based applications rely on MySQL replication and sharding to deliver high availability and scalability," said Tomas Ulin, vice president, MySQL Engineering, Oracle. "MySQL Fabric makes high availability with automatic failure detection and failover, as well as automated data sharding, accessible to all. With this integrated and open source framework, Oracle makes it easier to safely scale out MySQL applications, either on premises or in the cloud."

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
