07 Jun 2017 MySQL Documentation: Syntax Highlighting [64167]
By Stefan Hinz

Stefan blogs, "MySQL documentation has greatly improved code examples now: There's syntax highlighting in place, and code snippets can easily be copied to the clipboard. Highlighting is language-aware (including "languages" like the shell/command line). See, for example, this page from the X DevAPI documentation that contains a number of code examples for different programming languages...."

25 May 2017 Calculating Distances with MySQL's Spatial Data Extensions [63821]
By Mark Lewin

Mark writes, "I used to work for a company specializing in Geographical Information Systems, and I still get excited about using computers to interact with geospatial data. Once a field that interested only geography geeks, GIS has now become mainstream, with just about every mobile app offering some kind of location awareness.

Whereas many such applications use some kind of third-party API to work with spatial data, with MySQL you can do this right in the database itself. MySQL provides a number of spatial data types which let you create and store simple geometric shapes like points, lines, and polygons that represent features like cities, roads, and countries respectively, together with their location in the real world..."

24 May 2017 IBM Accelerates Open Database-as-a-Service on IBM Power Systems [63775]
IBM, May 24th 2017

IBM announced a new Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) toolkit on Power Systems optimized for open source databases, including MongoDB, EDB PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Redis, Neo4j, and Apache Cassandra to help deliver more speed, control, and efficiency for enterprise developers and IT departments.

The new platform gives database administrators and developers the ability to easily deploy a fully configured private cloud with automated provisioning for open source database services. Users can easily gain the efficiency of a cloud delivery model, while also maintaining oversight and control of resource allocation and secure data policies. Because the Open DBaaS Platform is built on OpenStack, it can also easily be incorporated into the organization's hybrid cloud management strategy.

18 May 2017 MySQL Enterprise backup : How to setup a slave for a standalone server with zero downtime? [63597]
By aravinth C

"It's a well know fact that we could take backups with almost zero downtime with the 'mysqldump' tool provided with the community edition of MySQL with a magical option -- single-transaction on one condition that all the tables are InnoDB. Myisam tables locked even with single transaction option. Now let us talk about the MySQL Enterprise backup tool that is only available with the Enterprise edition. We are also offered a 30 day trial. It has been said that MEB(let us just call the MySQL Enterprise backup, MEB) provides hot online backups with zero downtime. So a hot backup is done online and doesn't disrupt the normal operations of the database and it even captures the database operations happening during the backup process and applies it during the restoration process. This is applicable only to InnoDB tables..."
