Hyper-V is the native virtualization technology contained within Windows 10 Professional (and Windows Server & Windows 8 Pro). Using Hyper-V to create one or more virtual machines running Linux, it is possible to run and test multiple types of MariaDB ColumnStore deployment on a single Windows machine.
In this second installment of schema sharing with MariaDB MaxScale to combine SchemaRouter and ReadWriteSplit MaxScale routers, we'll go through the details of implementing it in order to shard databases among many pairs of master/slave servers.
Most of the time when you start a database design you don’t imagine how your applications need to scale. Sometimes, you need to shard your databases among some different hosts and then, on each shard you want to split reads and writes between master and slaves.
The 2.1.3 GA release of MariaDB MaxScale, introduces the following key features for the secure setup of MariaDB MaxScale Binlog Server:
The binlog cache files in the MaxScale host can now be encrypted.
MaxScale binlog server also uses SSL in communication with the master and the slave servers.
This blog covers how the binary log encryption works in MariaDB Server and in MariaDB MaxScale.
Today, a relational database like MariaDB Server (part of MariaDB TX) can read, write and query both structured and semi-structured data, together. MariaDB Server supports semi-structured data via dynamic columns and JSON functions. This blog post will focus on JSON functions with MariaDB Server, using examples to highlight one of they key benefits: data integrity.
This is a guest post by Vicențiu Ciorbaru, software engineer for the MariaDB Foundation.
While containers can be great ephemeral vessels for your applications, your data needs to be able to survive containers coming and going, maintain its availability and reliability, and grow when you need it. Join our upcoming webinar to learn how to build your own MariaDB container.
Note: Replication Manager is developed and maintained by community members. It can be used with MariaDB Server, but it is not supported with an enterprise subscription.
MariaDB 10.2 includes a number of JSON functions, but why would you use JSON as aren't JSON and SQL data contradictory? This blog shows you why this isn't so and how these JSON functions can be a very useful addition to MariaDB and how MariaDB 10.2 has some other tricks that make JSON with MariaDB even more useful.
