Using non-root SQL Server containers on Docker and K8s

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, DevOps, Docker, Kubernetes, SQL Server | No Comments

This is something that I waited for a while, in fact since SQL Server 2017 … and the news came out on Wednesday 09th September 2019. Running Non-Root SQL Server Containers is now possible either on the next version of SQL Server (2019) and it has been backported on SQL Server 2017 as well. Non-root SQL Server containers will likely be part of hidden gem of SQL Server new features, but this is definitely a…

Deploying SQL Server 2019 container on RHEL 8 with podman

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, DevOps, Docker, SQL Server | No Comments

Having a fresh install of RHEL8 on my lab environment, I was curious to take a look at new containerization stuff from Red Hat in the context of SQL Server 2019. Good chances are the future version of SQL Server should be available and supported on with the latest version of Red Hat but for now this blog post is purely experimental. This time I wanted to share with you some thoughts about the new…

SQL Server containers and docker network driver performance considerations

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, DevOps, Docker, SQL Server | No Comments

Few months ago I attended to the Franck Pachot session about Microservices and databases at SOUG Romandie in Lausanne on 2019 May 21th. He covered some performance challenges that can be introduced by Microservices architecture design and especially when database components come into the game with chatty applications. One year ago, I was in a situation where a customer installed some SQL Server Linux 2017 containers in a Docker infrastructure with user applications located outside…

Keine Angst vor Container Technologie (DOAG 2018)

By | Docker | No Comments

Seit 30 Jahren bin ich in der IT-Branche tätig, hatte immer wieder mit Oracle mit RDBMS Systemen zu tun. Nun, seit bald 4 Jahren als Berater bei dbi services habe ich sehr viel Berührung mit Oracle Datenbaken, daher auch mein Besuch der DOAG 2018.

The size of Oracle Home: from 9GB to 600MB

By | Oracle | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . This is research only and totally unsupported. When building docker images to run Oracle Database in a container, we try to get the smallest image possible. One way is to remove some subdirectories that we know will not be used. For example, the patch history is not used anymore once we have the required version. The dbca templates can be removed as soon as we have created the database… In this…

Running SQL Server containers on K8s Docker for Windows CE stable channel

By | Database Administration & Monitoring, DevOps, SQL Server | No Comments

The release of Docker for Windows Stable version 18.06..0-ce-win70 comes with some great new features I looked for a while including the K8s support! That’s a pretty good news because this support has existed on Edge channel since the beginning of this year but no chance to install a beta version on my laptop from my side. So, we get now a good opportunity to test locally our SQL Server image with a K8s single…

Dealing with automatic restart and SQL Docker containers

By | Database Administration & Monitoring | No Comments

A couple of weeks ago, a customer asked me how to restart containers automatically after a reboot of the underlying host. In his context, it was not an insignificant question because some containers are concerned by SQL Server databases and he wanted to stay relaxed as long as possible even after a maintenance of the Linux host by sysadmins. The concerned (DEV) environment doesn’t include container orchestration like Swarm or Kubernetes. The interesting point is…
