POWA 1.2 is out !

PostgreSQL News - Tue, 10/28/2014 - 01:00

DALIBO is proud to present a new release of POWA, a performance tool for PostgreSQL.

Realtime traffic analysis and dynamic graphs

POWA is a workload analyzer that gives a clear view of the current activity of your PostgreSQL servers with a query runtime graph and a block hit/read graph along with a chart of time consuming requests over the specified time period.

If you zoom anywhere in one of the graphs, the chart will adjust and show you which queries were running at that time. If you click on a specific query, you will get additional graphs such as read/write time, number of rows affected, local and shared hit, etc.

A bunch of PL functions are also available to access and manage the stats.

New metrics and a better UI

This release includes some new features and some fixes since the first public release.

The core is responsible of statistics gathering. It relies on pg_stat_statements. As a first change, in order to avoid storing useless informations, DEALLOCATE and BEGIN statements are now ignored by the core. The snapshot timestamps were fixed. In order to ease backups and diagnostics, now PoWA history tables are now marked as "to be dumped" by pg_dump. Performance for "per database aggregated stats" were also improved. And last thing, some more metrics were made available throught the SQL API : temporary data, I/O time, average runtime.

The UI was also improved. In addition to displaying the new available metrics, several features were added. First, the UI follows the selected time interval from page to page. The displayed metrics are now human readable. Also, the query metrics are now displayed on each query page. Each page now has a different title, regarding its context. In order to get a better display area, the original database selector as been removed. A menu entry now permits the user to navigate between databases. Several bugs were fixed, like the empty graph bug. Note that the configuration file has changed since the previous release.

For the complete list of changes, please checkout the release notes

For complete installation and upgrading instructions, please checkout the documentation

Credits

DALIBO would like to thank the users and developers who contributed to this release, especially Christopher Liu, menardorama, Victor D, Justin Miller, Arthur Lutz.

POWA is an open project available under the PostgreSQL License. Any contribution to build a better tool is welcome. You just have to send your ideas, features requests or patches using the GitHub tools or directly to powa@dalibo.com

Raymond James Financial Drives Smarter Operational Decisions with OracleOracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c help centralize multiple data sources and enable better decision-making for 6,000 financial advisors REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – October 27, 2014
News Summary

With an increasing amount of data being produced every day, organizations need to effectively manage the information influx to support smarter, faster decision-making. Raymond James Financial (Raymond James), a Florida-based diversified financial services company, implemented Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c technologies to help meet this goal. With Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c, Raymond James established an enterprise information platform that integrates data from multiple sources and provides a consolidated company view, giving constituents quicker access to actionable, timely data that can boost operational efficiency and build a seamless customer experience.

News Facts Raymond James Financial, a diversified financial services company, has selected Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c to help enable better decision-making for its financial advisors. To power its strategic Operational Data Store Project, which supports next-generation financial advisor applications, Raymond James needed a flexible platform that would easily integrate with current systems and help manage continued information growth across disparate data sources. Using Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c, Raymond James has been able to integrate client and product data from seven sources, including HP NonStop systems, Microsoft SQL Server databases, and IBM Netezza data warehouse, to create a consolidated view of company operational data within financial advisor–facing applications. Oracle’s solution reduced data latency from five minutes to a median of nine seconds. This new centralized system provides enterprise-wide visibility into operational data, such as client portfolio information, while also helping to ensure data quality and governance. In addition, the Oracle solutions support repeatable processes in data migration and loading, which improves productivity and operational efficiency and accelerates time to market for new financial services. With Oracle, Raymond James has reduced the time needed to integrate a new data source into its data warehouse by 50 percent and reduced the time needed to generate client performance reports from minutes to seconds. This helps 6,000 financial advisors improve customer satisfaction through quicker response times, and accelerates speed to market for new solutions and enhancements. Additionally, with Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c, Raymond James can provide 24/7 support for business-critical processes such as calculating rates of return, which the company reduced from several hours to just 30 minutes. Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c are part of Oracle Fusion Middleware 12c, the leading business innovation platform for the enterprise and the cloud.Supporting Quote “We faced the difficult task of managing a growing number of data sources, and as a result needed an enterprise-grade solution that would help us overcome this challenge and enable better and timely decision-making,” said Chaitanya Palem, manager, Architecture and Core Services, Raymond James Financial. “Oracle Data Integrator 12c and Oracle GoldenGate 12c have enabled us to manage our massive pools of data, as well as accelerate time to market for future projects, improve performance and system availability, and reduce IT costs. But just as critically, the Oracle solutions have helped us improve customer satisfaction by delivering better, faster service.”Supporting Resources Oracle Data Integrator 12c Oracle GoldenGate 12c Oracle Fusion Middleware 12cAbout Oracle

walbouncer: partial transaction log replication

PostgreSQL News - Wed, 10/22/2014 - 01:00

We are proud to announce walbouncer 0.9 - a tool to filter transaction log. At this point we are moving rapidly closer to a production-ready tool.

The key advantage of walbouncer is that it is no longer necessary to replicate entire database instances. You can filter out entire databases and tablespaces and selectively choose what to replicate.

walbouncer can act as a WAL proxy distributing data flexible to various servers containing different subsets of data.

walbouncer is open source and can be downloaded freely from our website. Currently PostgreSQL 9.4 is supported.

Cloudera Selects Azure as a Preferred Cloud Platform

We are working to make Azure the best cloud platform for big data, including Apache Hadoop. To accomplish this, we deliver a comprehensive set of solutions such as our Hadoop-based solution Azure HDInsight and managed data services from partners, including Hortonworks. Last week Hortonworks  announced the most recent milestone in our partnership and yesterday we announced even more data options for our Azure customers through a partnership with Cloudera.

Cloudera is recognized as a leader in the Hadoop community, and that’s why we’re excited Cloudera Enterprise has achieved Azure Certification. As a result of this certification, organizations will be able to launch a Cloudera Enterprise cluster from the Azure Marketplace starting October 28. Initially, this will be an evaluation cluster with access to MapReduce, HDFS and Hive. At the end of this year when Cloudera 5.3 releases, customers will be able to leverage the power of the full Cloudera Enterprise distribution including HBase, Impala, Search, and Spark.

We’re also working with Cloudera to ensure greater integration with Analytics Platform System, SQL Server, Power BI and Azure Machine Learning. This will allow organizations to build big data solutions quickly and easily by using the best of Microsoft and Cloudera, together.  For example Arvato Bertelsmann was able to help clients cut fraud losses in half and speed credit calculations by 1,000x.

Our partnership with Cloudera allows customers to use the Hadoop distribution of their choice while getting the cloud benefits of Azure. It is also a sign of our continued commitment to make Hadoop more accessible to customers by supporting the ability to run big data workloads anywhere – on hosted VM’s and managed services in the public cloud, on-premise or in hybrid scenarios.

From Strata in New York to our recent news from San Francisco it’s exciting times ahead for those in the data space.  We hope you join us for this ride!

Expanding the Availability and Deployment of Hadoop Solutions on Microsoft Azure

Author: Shaun Connolly
VP Corporate Strategy - Hortonworks

Data growth threatens to overwhelm existing systems and bring those systems to their knees. That’s one of the big reasons we’ve been working with Microsoft to enable a Modern Data Architecture for Windows users and Microsoft customers.

A history of delivering Hadoop to Microsoft customers

Hortonworks and Microsoft have been partnering to deliver solutions for big data on Windows since 2011. Hortonworks is the company that Microsoft relies on for providing the industry’s first and only 100% native Windows distribution of Hadoop, as well as the core Hadoop platform for Microsoft Azure HDInsight and the Hadoop region of the Microsoft Analytics Platform System.

This week we made several announcements that further enable hybrid choice for Microsoft-focused enterprises interested in deploying Apache Hadoop on-premises and in the cloud.

New capabilities for Hadoop on Windows

Hortonworks has announced the newest version of the Hortonworks Data Platform for Windows  - the market’s only Windows native Apache Hadoop-based platform. This brings many new innovations for managing, processing and analyzing big data including:

  • Enterprise SQL at scale
  • New capabilities for data scientists
  • Internet of things with Apache Kafka
  • Management and monitoring improvements
  • Easier maintenance with rolling upgrades

Automated cloud backup for Microsoft Azure
Data architects require Hadoop to act like other systems in the data center, and business continuity through replication across on-premises and cloud-based storage targets is a critical requirement.  In HDP 2.2, we extended the capabilities of Apache Falcon to establish an automated policy for cloud backup to Microsoft Azure.  This is an important first step in a broader vision to enable seamlessly integrated hybrid deployment models for Hadoop.

Certified Hadoop on Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Increasingly the cloud is an important component for big data deployments. On Wednesday October 15 we announced that the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) is the first Hadoop platform to be Azure certified to run on Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines. This gives customers new deployment choices for small and large deployments in the cloud. With this new certification, Hortonworks and Microsoft make Apache Hadoop more widely available and easy to deploy for data processing and analytic workloads enabling the enterprise to expand their modern data architecture.

Maximizing Hadoop Deployment choice for Microsoft Customers

These latest efforts further expand the deployment options for Microsoft customers while providing them with complete interoperability between workloads on-premises and in the cloud. This means that applications built on-premises can be moved to the cloud seamlessly. Complete compatibility between these infrastructures gives customers the freedom to use the infrastructure that best meets their needs. You can backup data where the data resides (geographically) and provide the flexibility and opportunity for others to do Hadoop analytics in the cloud (globally).

We are excited to be the first Hadoop vendor to offer Hadoop on Azure Virtual Machines and we look forward to continuing our long history of working with Microsoft to engineer and offer solutions that meet the most flexible and easy to use deployment options for big data available, further increasing the power of the Modern Data Architecture.

The ins and outs of Apache Storm – real-time processing for Hadoop

Yesterday at Strata + Hadoop World, Microsoft announced the preview of Apache Storm clusters on Azure HDInsight.  This post will give you the ins and outs of Storm.

What is Storm?

Apache Storm is a distributed, fault-tolerant, open source real-time event processing solution. Storm was originally used by Twitter to process massive streams of data from the Twitter firehose. Today, Storm is an incubator project as part of the Apache Software foundation. Typically, Storm will be integrated with a scalable event queuing system like Apache Kafka or Azure Event Hubs.

What can it do?

Combined with an event queuing system, the combined solution will be able to process a large amount of real-time data. This can enable many different scenarios like real-time fraud detection, click-stream analysis, financial alerts, telemetry from connected sensors/devices, and more. For information on real world scenarios, read how companies are using Storm.

How do I get started?

For Microsoft customers, we offer Storm as a preview cluster in Azure HDInsight. This gives you a managed cluster where you will have the benefit of being easy-to-setup (within a few clicks and a few minutes), having high availability (clusters are monitored 24/7 and under the Azure SLA for uptime), having elastic scale (where more resources can be added depending on need), and being integrated to the broad Azure ecosystem (ie. Event Hubs, HBase, VNet, etc).

To get started, customers will need to have an Azure subscription or a free trial to Azure. With this in hand, you should be able to get a Storm cluster up and running in minutes by going through this getting started guide.

Preparing Your Enterprise for Big Data

Database Journal News - Thu, 10/16/2014 - 08:01

It’s difficult to simply 'drop' big data applications into an existing IT infrastructure and expect to run smoothly. In addition to energy and cooling requirements for new hardware to support the new big data application, other IT areas need to prepare. The major factors that determine whether enhancements will be needed to existing applications include large data storage needs, larger data transmission capacity, and the demands these will place on existing hardware and software.
