What I really like about Percona PMM

By | Cloud, Database Administration & Monitoring, MariaDB, MySQL, Oracle, Postgres, SQL Server | No Comments

Percona Monitoring and Management tool (PMM) is an Open Source product which was developed to help DBAs and developers to monitor and manage MySQL, PostgreSQL and MongoDB performances.

AWS CLI tips and tricks

By | AWS, Cloud | No Comments

When working with AWS, I would not advice to run all operations through the AWS Console. And it’s not always possible or easy to do it only with pipelines and Infrastructure as Code. Sometimes, we just need to perform the same operations on many instances or we already have an automation based on a script. In those situations, AWS CLI (the command line) can be very handy. I had the chance recently to attend a…

By | AWS, Cloud, Technology Survey | No Comments

Time flies, it’s already the 3rd day at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas. As I like to have dedicated time for hands-on I started again the day with another workshop. It’s a lot of knowledge to process daily, when taking the workshop here, AWS provides a temporary account and prepared environments but hopefully most of the workshops can be done on your own accounts later. The topic was the multi-account strategy and how to create/manage…

AWS re:Invent 2021 – A busy day to start

This week, I consider myself lucky I’m working with AWS at customer and at dbi since few years now and I consider myself lucky to attend the conference in person. At re:Invent, there are different types of content so you can adapt your schedule. I personally tried this year to get some diversity, I started the week with a workshop on EKS. As we can imagine, workshop sessions are really the kind of place where…

Recovery in the ☁ with Google Cloud SQL (PostgreSQL)

By | Cloud, Postgres | One Comment

By Franck Pachot . In a previous post I started this series of “Recovery in the ☁” with the Oracle Autonomous database. My goal is to explain the recovery procedures, especially the Point-In-Time recovery procedures because there is often confusion, which I tried to clarify in What is a database backup (back to the basics).
