Amazon Aurora: calling a lambda from a trigger

By | AWS, Cloud | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . You may want your RDS database to interact with other AWS services. For example, send a notification on a business or administration situation, with a “push” method rather than a “pull” one from a Cloud watch alert. You may even design this call to be triggered on database changes. And Amazon Aurora provides this possibility by running a lambda from the database through calling mysql.lambda_async() from a MySQL trigger. This is…

By | Cloud, Oracle | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . I’ll start this series with the Oracle Autonomous database but my goal is to cover the Point In Time recovery for many managed databases in the major cloud providers. Because I’ve seen lot of confusion about database backups (see What is a database backup (back to the basics)). On one side, in a managed database, we should not have to care about backups, but only about recovery. The way it is…

AWS DynamoDB -> S3 -> OCI Autonomous Database

By | AWS, Cloud, Oracle | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . I contribute to multiple technologies communities. I’m an Oracle ACE Director for many years, and I also became an AWS Data Hero recently 🎉. I got asked if there’s no conflict with that, as Amazon and Oracle are two competitors. Actually, there’s no conflict at all. Those advocacy programs are not about sales, but technology. Many database developers and administrators have to interact with more than one cloud provider, and those…
