DB2 Advanced Copy Services: The scripted interface, Part 4: Implementation for DB2 ACS

IBM - DB2 and Informix Articles - Thu, 06/25/2015 - 05:00
IBM DB2 Advanced Copy Services (DB2 ACS) supports taking snapshots for backup purposes in DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows databases. You can use the DB2 ACS API through libraries implemented by your storage hardware vendors, or you can implement this API yourself. As of IBM DB2 10.5, a feature called Scripted Interface for DB2 Advanced Copy Services was introduced. It allows you to implement shell scripts instead of C libraries. These scripts can use the tools provided by the storage vendors to run the snapshot operations. The scripted interface can be used independently from your storage hardware. Additionally, DB2 supports storage hardware as soon as it becomes available. The feature supports all three architectures of DB2: enterprise server, multi-partitioned database using the database partitioning feature (DPF), and databases using pureScale. And it's supported on all UNIX and Linux platforms on which DB2 is certified. Part 4 of this "DB2 Advanced Copy Services: The scripted interface" series demonstrates the usage of the scripted interface together with IBM System Storage and IBM Storage Manager. The DB2 database in this example is used by an SAP NetWeaver system.

Impressions from the European Lisp Symposium, Goldsmith University April 2015

Google Open Source Blog - Wed, 06/24/2015 - 22:50
Martin Cracauer is a software engineer for Google’s Travel team and a dedicated Lisp enthusiast. Below, he shares his impressions of the recent European Lisp Symposium.
In April, I attended the 8th European Lisp Symposium in London. It was good to be there and I'm proud to have played a part by giving a talk about unwanted memory retention.

More than anything, I was struck by the professionalism of the performance-oriented Lisp programmers giving talks. The Lisp community has moved beyond fighting with their compilers and settling for a couple useless microoptimizations. At a modern Lisp conference like this one, the same terms used at any other performance computing conference rain down upon the audience. There isn't a generic "probably didn't fit the cache" -- now we talk specific caches and line counts. We don't say "swapping" -- we give specific counts of major and minor page faults and recognize the relative cost of each. We have a deep awareness of what will end up being a system call, and which ones are cheap in which OS.  I had a lot of interest at the 2006 European Common Lisp Meeting by describing how ITA uses Lisp only at compile time and gets full performance at runtime. In 2015, that’s just normal.

There’s still work to do, however. It’s not there yet, but I think Lisp should become the ideal language for both SIMD computing (via new primitives allowing the programmer to tell the compiler instead of relying on arbitrarily smart compilers) and for speculative execution (allow the programmer to make promises and crash if they turn out untrue). I'm always hoping somebody (else) will kick off that effort.

The second thing that struck me was how much people at this conference leverage two of Lisp’s major advantages:

  • compile time computing (having the full runtime language at compile time to expand your compiled code from whatever abstraction is most suitable)
  • and the "commandline", the REPL, inside a high performance language


Several presenters combined those features to construct 3D objects, and even built a bridge between computed 3D objects and interactively built objects (in a graphical editor). One of those sessions was Dave Cooper’s tutorial. Both could create sets of 3D objects that mixed computed objects and interactive building at an astonishing rate.

Breanndán Ó Nualláin’s talk, "Executable Pseudocode for Graph Algorithms", was useful to me because it gave a digestible example of more complex compile time computing. It’s difficult to illustrate the concept, but Breanndán used Lisp’s power as a "programmable programming language" to make a frontend that expresses pseudocode for algorithms in an optimized s-expression syntax. The result is readable, executable, and fast. In addition, you can easily create a backend that targets LaTeX so that you could put your running algorithm in a textbook. This is so useful when trying to understand what the power of a "programmable programming language" really means. Now your LaTex for the algorithms paper is derived from proven working code.

To me, the most jaw-dropping talk of the conference was Christian E. Schafmeister’s "Clasp - A Common Lisp that Interoperates with C++ and Uses the LLVM Backend". The title is the understatement of the year. What is going on here is building tiny 3-nanometer protein-like structures to do useful things like cure cancer and destroy sarin. Although many C++ libraries exist for building such structures, it would be too painful to glue them all together in C++. Instead of feeding C++ through a layer of C and back into some object representation (like the rest of us, cough) Christian presented a Common Lisp implementation running in LLVM, using the LLVM runtime libraries that provide introspection to directly interface to C++. He was kind enough to give the talk again at our Google Cambridge office where it was recorded.

At large scale, Lisp exposes some rough spots. A lot of Googlers like really clean modularization, but Common Lisp packages don't quite provide it. This used to be a big problem for CMUCL, reducing the number of people who could build it. Robert Strandh talked about “First-class Global Environments in Common Lisp”. I am sure people would love to see that in SBCL. I also liked Paul van der Walt's talk, bringing forward ideas to improve restricted runtime environments (such as mobile devices) while keeping them easy to describe in their dependencies.

In my own talk on “Unwanted Memory Retention”, I didn’t just limit the discussion to Lisp, SBCL, and its garbage collector. I addressed group culture and perception bias: how imbalanced performance tradeoffs come about in long-running software projects, how they mix with rapid changes in the computing environment around your Lisp, and how Lisp is just a bit more flexible dealing with them.

This conference was an enlightening experience and I hope slides and videos will become available. For now, many of the topics covered are also discussed in the Symposium’s peer-reviewed papers (16MB PDF). But honestly, just reading doesn't do justice to the conference. People there were great presenters, too, and attending it was inspirational.

SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2.1 is available

Following the release of SQL Server 2016 CTP 2.0 last month, the SQL Server engineering team is excited to announce the immediate availability of CTP 2.1 release for download. The release includes improvements for three new innovations releasing in SQL Server 2016 - Stretch Database, Query Store, Temporal - and Columnstore Index, introduced in SQL Server 2012:

  1. Stretch Database, which enables transparent stretching of warm and cold OLTP data to Microsoft Azure in a secure manner without requiring any application changes, includes the following fixes:
    1. Data migration does not trigger lock escalation in stretched tables, so no timeouts for INSERT or SELECT operations
    2. Automatic encryption and validation requirement of remote server certification, preventing “man-in-the-middle” security attacks
    3. Ability to run INSERT statement against updatable views created on top of stretch tables
  2. Query Store, the “flight recorder” which stores historical query plans and their performance characteristics, allowing DBAs to monitor and analyze plans and force a specific query plan on regression, includes:
    1. Parse statistics avg_parse_duration, last_parse_duration, avg_parse_cpu_time, last_parse_cpu_time removed from sys.query_store_query view
    2. The minimally allowed for flush_interval_seconds parameter, 60 seconds, is now verified in ALTER DATABASE statement
    3. Naming in sys.database_query_store_options and actual parameters in ALTER statements are in alignment with flush_interval_seconds and operation_mode
    4. Query Store on master and tempdb disabled and error message thrown ("Cannot perform action because Query Store cannot be enabled on system database master (tempdb)")
    5. Force_failure_count parameter is now cleared after plan is enforced
  3. Temporal, which enables handling and analyzing database records that changes over time, includes:
    1. Support for computed columns
    2. Support for marking one or both period columns with HIDDEN flag, allowing for frictionless migration for existing applications. The following applies to HIDDEN period columns:
        1. Column is not returned in SELECT * statements
        2. INSERT statement without column list do not expect inputs for HIDDEN columns
        3. Hidden column must be explicitly included in all queries that directly reference temporal table or other objects that reference temporal table (views, for example)
        4. BULK INSERT scripts that worked with non-temporal table (prior to adding system-versioning and hidden period columns) will continue to work and hidden columns will be auto-populated
        5. is_hidden flag is set to 1 in sys.columns view

  4. Columnstore Index includes:
    1. Improved seek performance
    2. Improved scan performance with partitioned tables

Azure SQL Data Warehouse opens for Limited Public Preview

By Tiffany Wissner, Senior Director, Data Platform

At the Build conference in April, we announced Azure SQL Data Warehouse, our new enterprise-class elastic data warehouse-as-a-service. Today, we’re pleased to announce that Azure SQL Data Warehouse is open for Limited Public Preview.  

With growing data volumes, you have been telling us that you want to take advantage of the cost-efficiencies, elasticity and hyper-scale of cloud for your large data warehouses. You also need for that data warehouse to work with your existing infrastructure and tools, utilize your current skills and integrate with many sources of data. With Azure SQL Data Warehouse, we deliver:

  • The first enterprise-class elastic data warehouse that includes the separation of compute and storage, enabling customers to pay for what they need, when they need it
  • The ability to pause the database  so you only pay for commodity storage costs
  • Full SQL Server experience that includes PolyBase that allows you to combine queries for your structured and unstructured data using the skills you have today  
  • Hybrid options – your data, your platform, your choice

Azure SQL Data Warehouse is based on SQL Server’s massively parallel processing architecture currently available only in the Analytics Platform System (APS), and integrates with existing data tools including Power BI for data visualization, Azure Machine Learning for advanced analytics, Azure Data Factory for event processing and Azure HDInsight, Microsoft’s 100% Apache Hadoop managed big data service.

First enterprise-class elastic cloud data warehouse

This is the first elastic cloud data warehouse to offer enterprise class features our customers and partners expect and need like full indexing, stored procedure/functions, partitions, and columnar indexing. Without these features, organizations have to rewrite their existing applications and workflows at significant cost and slower time to market. This is the first fully managed cloud data warehouse to offer the compatibility SQL users need to migrate to the cloud.  Azure SQL Data Warehouse will be supported by a rich ecosystem of partners that support SQL Server today. Find out more about the partners we are working with from Garth Fort, GM of the enterprise partner group at Microsoft here.

And, because Azure SQL Data Warehouse independently scales compute and storage, users only pay for query performance as they need it.  Unlike other cloud data warehouses that require hours or days to resize, the service allows customers to grow or shrink query power in seconds. As you can scale compute costs separately from storage costs, costs are easier to forecast than competitive offerings.

Pause compute for lower costs

Elastic pause enables a customer to shut down the compute infrastructure while persisting the data and only paying for data storage. Customers can schedule pausing compute usage either through Azure SQL Data Warehouse or Azure Scheduler to optimize the cost of the service.

Leveraging existing SQL server skills with Hadoop

With the incredible growth of all types of data, the need to combine structured and unstructured data is essential. With Polybase, we offer the ability to combine data sets easily. SQL Data Warehouse can query semi-structured data stored in blob storage using familiar T-SQL, making it easy to gain insights from various data types.

Hybrid data warehouse – your data, your platform, your choice

Deploying on-premises data warehouse solutions can range from weeks to months. Azure SQL Data Warehouse takes seconds to provision. Cloud born data is more readily ingested into Azure SQL Data Warehouse. Other technologies such as Azure Data Factory and Power BI, which is available as a Connector to Azure SQL Data Warehouse today, provide the data management gateway which makes bringing data from on-premises sources to the cloud much simpler.  Azure SQL Data Warehouse also uses the same management as APS appliance to make hybrid management easier. 

 

One of the use cases for SQL Data Warehouse is the ability to cost effectively explore new insights and analytical workloads without impacting production platforms. This enables customers and partners to engage in new development and testing scenarios, based on real world requirements without the overhead production supportability and management constraints. 

The initial public preview is designed for data warehouses in the 5-10 TB range to give users the ability to start testing and providing feedback on the service. You can sign up now, and as we ramp the preview, new customers will be notified as they are accepted.

As with this Azure SQL Data Warehouse release, we continue to make it easier for customers to maximize their data dividends.  With our data platform you can capture, transform, and analyze any data, of any size, at any scale, in its native format —using the tools, languages and frameworks you know and want in a trusted environment on-premises and in the cloud.

Introducing HypoPG, hypothetical indexes for PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL News - Wed, 06/24/2015 - 01:00

Paris, June 24 2015

DALIBO is proud to present the first release of HypoPG, an extension that adds hypothetical indexes in PostgreSQL.

A hypothetical index is an index that doesn't exists on disk. It's therefore almost instant to create and doesn't add any IO cost, whether at creation time or at maintenance time. The goal is obviously to check if an index is useful before spending too much time, I/O and disk space to create it.

With this extension, you can create hypothetical indexes, and then with EXPLAIN check if PostgreSQL would use them or not.

What if I had an Index on this ?

Did you ever wonder how an index would increase the performances of your server, but you couldn't afford the time to create it on disk just for the sake of trying ?

Here's how HypoPG can help:

First let's create a simple use case:

# CREATE TABLE testable 
#   AS SELECT id, 'line ' || id val 
#   FROM generate_series(1,1000000) id;
# ANALYZE testable ;

Now let's install HypoPG and create an hypothetical index on this new table

# CREATE EXTENSION hypopg;
# SELECT hypopg_create_index('CREATE INDEX ON testable (id)');

You can now use EXPLAIN (without ANALYZE) to check if PostgreSQL would use that index !

# EXPLAIN SELECT * FROM testable WHERE id = 1000 ;
                                          QUERY PLAN
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Index Scan using 41079_btree_testable_id on testable  (cost=0.05..8.07 rows=1 width=15)
   Index Cond: (id = 1000)
(2 rows)

Yay ! If there were an index on the 'id' column, PostgreSQL would take advantage of it !

Partners Rapidly Pivot to the Cloud with Oracle

Oracle Database News - Wed, 06/24/2015 - 00:32
Press Release Partners Rapidly Pivot to the Cloud with Oracle Oracle PartnerNetwork Hosts Annual Partner Kick Off, Outlines New Strategies and Tools for Continued Partner Success and Growth in the Cloud in FY16

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jun 23, 2015

Oracle today welcomed partners from around the globe to its annual Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) kickoff. At the live, virtual event, OPN outlined how it will continue to work with its partner community to help them thrive in the cloud with Oracle in fiscal year 2016. Helping partners capitalize on this opportunity, the company outlined a number of new incentive, training and enablement resources.

“Our partners are under extreme pressure to move and scale to the cloud, all while leveraging existing technology investments, managing costs, and maintaining stringent SLA requirements,” said Joel Borellis, group vice president, Partner Enablement, Oracle. “Our job is to help them manage this process and future-proof their applications in the cloud quickly, securely and cost-effectively. The new cloud programs and incentives we are introducing are designed to do exactly that – giving our partners more choice in how they move to the cloud, while incenting their growth and success in the broad market.”

Cloud is one of the fastest growing areas across Oracle’s more than 26,000 partners. In the last quarter alone, Oracle’s cloud resale program grew 180 percent, which was larger than the last three quarters combined. Year over year growth was more than 650 percent. Today, more than 140 ISVs around the globe are already taking advantage of Oracle Cloud Platform offerings for ISVs, including Oracle Database Cloud Services and Oracle Java Cloud Services. The Oracle Cloud Marketplace, which receives thousands of daily visitors, also features more than 450 unique and innovative cloud applications.

New Incentives Reward VADs and VARs for Growth in the Cloud

To amplify Oracle’s reach in the broad marketplace and help partners extend their own opportunities and revenue potential with the cloud, OPN added Oracle Cloud services to Oracle’s value added distributor (VAD) distribution offerings last year. The two-tier distribution model for the Oracle Cloud enables partners to leverage local VADs in their respective markets to take full advantage of Oracle Cloud reselling and implementation services.

Effective immediately, the Oracle Cloud resale program will enable both VADs and VARs (Value Added Resellers) to take advantage of new OPN incentive rebates, regardless of the Oracle Cloud technologies they are leveraging, SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. This program provides partners the ability to sell multi-year deals, as well as take advantage of renewals and up-sell opportunities to gain ongoing annuity.

Enhanced Enablement Resources Smooth Transition to the Cloud

OPN is announcing several new programs that will enable partners to grow their business and customer value by reselling, developing, integrating and implementing cloud solutions with Oracle’s industry leading cloud application, platform and infrastructure offerings. New Programs include:

  • Oracle Cloud Business Builder: The new single-source website helps partners build their cloud business with Oracle. The site provides partners with information, tutorials, how to guides, videos and multiple resources to help them refer and resell, develop and integrate, and implement and architect Oracle cloud and enabling technologies. More information can be found here.
  • Recognitions for Cloud Excellence: Oracle has added new partner excellence award recognitions for partners, including the Cloud Transformation Global Partner of the Year, Cloud ISV Excellence Award and Oracle Exastack Partner Excellence Award. These acknowledgements recognize partners that are growing their businesses and delivering customer value with Oracle cloud and engineered system technologies.
  • Enhancements to the Oracle Partner Store: As the one stop shop for partner membership, deal registration, and ordering, the Oracle Partner Store has over 400,000 active users from over 30,000 companies worldwide, handling over 300,000 transactions per year. Most recently, Oracle has enhanced the mobile experience of the Partner Store, ensuring partners can easily register key information, regardless of their location or device. In addition to offering more products than ever before, including Oracle SaaS solutions, the site now enables partners to update their registrations with deal size, deal status and close date information – in turn optimizing the rebate, quoting and other processes. Oracle PaaS will also be added to the partner store in July 2015.
