Become a PostgreSQL DBA - How to Setup Streaming Replication for High Availability
Historically, PostgreSQL did not have support for replication, which was provided using external tools like Pgpool and Slony. These solutions did not come out of the box and most of them required a good bit of work to set them up. This was a serious drawback, and it made people look into MySQL, where replication had been available for a long time. Thankfully, with PostgreSQL 9.0, replication has been added natively to PostgreSQL and this post shows you how to set up streaming replication.
Performing a Live Upgrade to MySQL 5.7
After studying the differences between MySQL 5.6 and 5.7, and going through a vigorous regression test process in our two previous posts on this topic, it’s now time for perform the actual upgrade itself. How do we best introduce 5.7 in our live environment? How can we minimize risks? What do we do if something goes wrong? And what tools are available out there to assist us? This latest post provides answers to these questions as well as a link to the related whitepaper on how to upgrade to MySQL 5.7.
That’s it for this week! Feel free to share these resources with your colleagues and follow us in our social media channels.
