Launching and Managing a New MongoDB Instance in OpenStack

This article will discuss launching and managing a new MongoDB instance using the Tesora Database as a Service Platform, which is based on OpenStack Trove. It’s designed to run on OpenStack, with the goal of allowing users to quickly and easily use the native features of a database without the burden of handling complex administrative tasks. Cloud users and database administrators can provision and manage multiple database instances as needed.

Step 1: First you will need to have Guest Images for each datastore and version. These images are loaded to OpenStack Glance (where virtual machine images are stored) and registered with Trove. Some guest images for development and testing are available for download from OpenStack at http://tarballs.openstack.org/trove/images/ubuntu. If you’re looking for more information, check out this article, Building a database guest image for OpenStack Trove.

Step 2: Next, using the Tesora DBaaS platform dashboard, log in as the admin user then select the “Datastores” tab. To create a new instance, simply click on the “Launch Instance” button which triggers a screen where you name the instance, then pick the flavor (the kind of machine or the virtual machine), the database instance size and type of database. Finally, click the “Launch” button and the instance is created.

Step 3: Next, click on “Create Database”, type in the name and you have your new MongoDB database. To create a user, click on the “Users” tab and then “Create User”. Type in the user name and password, then allow the user access by clicking on the pulldown to the far right and select “Manage Access”. On the next screen, click on “Grant Access” and you’re done.

Now that the database has been created, let’s look at how to manage your MongoDB instances.

Step 4: Go to the MongoDB database instance and select “Create Backup” on the far right. Type in the name and click on the “Backup” button to complete the process.

Step 5: Finally, let’s look at how to create a new instance from an existing backup. Click on “Launch Instance” and type in a new name, the flavor and volume as you did before but this time click on the “Advanced” tab. In the bottom box, choose the “Backup Name” you just created then click the “Launch” button.

It’s also possible to set up a configuration group where you have access to all of the parameters of the database.

Step 6: Start by choosing “Configuration Groups” from the menu and then select “Create Configuration Group”. Next, name the group, for example, “mongoconfig”. Now you’ll want to select “Add Parameter” and you’ll see a list of MongoDB parameters. You can define values for each. Once done, click on “Apply Changes” to save the configuration group.

Step 7: Here is how to apply the configuration group to another database instance. Select “Instances” then use the “Actions” pulldown on one of the database instances to select [FD1] [GR2] “Attach Configuration Group”. Select the group that you just created and choose “Attach Configuration”. This adds the configuration group to that database instance. To complete this, you will be prompted to click on “Restart Instance”.

You can see how easy it is to launch new MongoDB instances and manage those with the Tesora DBaaS platform — database as a service based on OpenStack Trove. We’ve created this “Configuring & Managing MongoDB Instances: Creating Database Instances” video demonstration so you can see for yourself.

Resizing MySQL Instances and Volumes using OpenStack Trove Database as a Service

Anyone with experience managing databases knows that they often grow over time – requiring additional resources on the machine where the database is running. A common practice is over-provisioning machine resources right from the start though, of course, that could be wasteful.

Here, we’ll show you just how easy it is to re-size a MySQL database running in private cloud DBaaS using the Tesora Database as a Service Platform, which is based on OpenStack Trove.

Step 1: To use OpenStack Trove, first you will need to have Guest Images for each datastore. These images are loaded to OpenStack Glance (where virtual machine images are stored) and registered with Trove. Some guest images for development and testing are available for download from OpenStack at http://tarballs.openstack.org/trove/images/ubuntu. If you’re looking for more information, check out this article, Building a database guest image for OpenStack Trove.

Step 2: Next, using the Tesora DBaaS platform dashboard, log in as the admin user. In our example, let’s say that the MySQL database instance you need to re-size is currently allocated 3 gigabytes. Use the “Actions” pulldown on your database instance and select “Resize Volume”. Simply specify the new amount, for example, let’s say 4 gigabytes and that is it.

Step 3: Next, you can scale up the instance by going back to the “Actions” pulldown on the database instance and this time selecting “Resize Instance”. Use the pulldown to select a larger size. In our example, let’s say the existing database was specified as “Trove Medium” so now we select “Trove Medium Resize”. This automatically changes the memory allocation from 1 gigabyte to 1.3 gigabytes.

To see this in action, we’ve created this “Configuring & Managing MySQL Instances: Resizing Instances and Volumes” video so you can see for yourself how easy it is to re-size existing MySQL database instances using the Tesora DBaaS platform — database as a service based on OpenStack Trove.

Configuring and Managing MySQL Instances using OpenStack Trove Database as a Service

If you have a database or two, that is one thing, but as an organization if you have a number of databases running, you may have a mandate to make sure they are all created with specific configurations to meet your organizational standards. This article will discuss how to use the Tesora Database as a Service Platform, which is based on OpenStack Trove, to set up a configuration group where you have access to all of the parameters of the database, in this case, MySQL running in an OpenStack cloud.

You can pick and choose the property or properties that you want to manage and then can attach this configuration group to database instances. Let’s see how we can do that.

Step 1: To use OpenStack Trove, first you will need to have Guest Images for each datastore. These images are loaded to OpenStack Glance (where virtual machine images are stored) and registered with Trove. Some guest images for development and testing are available for download from OpenStack at http://tarballs.openstack.org/trove/images/ubuntu. If you’re looking for more information, check out this article, Building a database guest image for OpenStack Trove.

Step 2: Next, using the Tesora DBaaS platform dashboard, you log in as the admin user. Start by choosing “Configuration Groups” from the menu and then select “Create Configuration Group”. Next, name the group, for example, “myconfig” and add a description, like “MySQL Configuration Group”. Then, select the datastore type and version.

In this example, we specify that we are creating a MySQL 5.6 configuration group, and the Tesora DBaaS platform automatically provides all the parameters that apply to MySQL databases. Now, to add parameters select this newly created configuration group, and then “Add Parameter”. Use the pulldown to add a parameter like the maximum number of connections (“max_connections”). Go ahead and specify a value of 255. Once we have done that, we can also add many more properties to this configuration group. Once you are done, choose “Apply Changes” and the configuration group is set.

Step 3: Now, go back to the databases that we created by selecting “Instances” and we can apply the configuration group. Use the “Actions” pulldown on one of the database instances and select “Attach Configuration Group”. Select the group that you just created and choose “Attach Configuration”. This adds the configuration group to that database instance. Now, the number of connections that are allowed for this database instance is 255, as we had specified.

That’s it, you’re done. We’ve created this “Configuring & Managing MySQL Instances: Configuration Groups” video demonstration so you can see for yourself how easy it is to set up a configuration group and apply it to MySQL database instances using the Tesora DBaaS platform — database as a service based on OpenStack Trove.

The shift has been away from utilizing discrete optical components to leveraging the design and pay-as-you-grow flexibility offered by pluggable modules. Optical transceiver products are compliant with Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH/OTN and PON standards. They generally operate at data rates of 10 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s.

Transmitter / Transceivers are capable of distances ranging from very short reach within a datacenter to campus, access, metro, and long-haul reaches. They feature outstanding performance. Units work over extended voltage and temperature ranges. They are positioned to minimize jitter, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and power dissipation.

Optical transceiver components are an innovation engine for the network. Optical transceiver components support and enable low-cost transport throughout the network. Optical transceivers are needed for high speed network infrastructure build-outs. These are both for carriers and data centers. Network infrastructure build-out depends on the availability of consultants who are knowledgeable.

Consultants with extensive experience are needed to bring optical component network design, installation, upgrade and maintenance into development. Optical components are being used to equip data centers, FTTx, metro access or core networks. They are used for long-haul and WAN.

A palette of pluggable optical transceivers includes GBIC, SFP, XFP, SFP+, X2, CFP form factors. These are able to accommodate a wide range of link spans. Vendors work closely with network planners and infrastructure managers to design high speed optical transport systems.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research team that prepared the study, “The DP-QPSK is the industry-backed modulation scheme for 100Gbps.Commonality between 40Gbps and 100Gbps coherent designs bring a design choice to the issue is relative costs. The economics of 40 Gbps versus 100 Gbps coherent are matters of comparison. If users buy 40 Gbps and an economical 100 Gbps coherent design appears, 40 Gbps coherent get the required market traction to create economies of scale that market the 40Gbps devices viable in the market.”

Designers are shrinking existing 40Gbps modules, boosting 40Gbps system capacity. The 300-pin LFF transponder, at 7*5 inch, requires its own line card. Two system line cards are needed for a 40Gbps link: one for the short-reach, client-side interface and one for the line-side transponder.
