Heroku CI 正式推出

月初才提到「Heroku 也要進入 CI 市場...」,前幾天就開放使用了:「Heroku CI Is Now Generally Available: Fast, Low Setup CI That’s Easy to Use」。

收費方式是依照 Heroku Pipelines 收費,一個 Heroku Pipelines 是 USD$10/month:

Each CI-enabled Heroku Pipeline is charged just $10/month for an unlimited number of test runs.

比起其他棚是無限量 Travis CI 的 $69/month (1 concurrent job,不限時間),或是 CircleCI 的 Free 方案 (1 concurrent job,限時每個月 1500 分鐘) 或是 USD$50/month (2 concurrent job,不限時間),感覺有些微妙...

感覺還是先繼續用 Travis CI 好了,目前 Open Source Project 的標準,路邊可以隨便檢到很多範例用... (像是用 Google".travis.yml" "language:php" site:github.com 就可以找到很多 PHP 的範例)

AWS CodeDeploy 支援 BlueGreenDeployment

AWS CodeDeploy 推出了 BlueGreenDeployment 的功能:「AWS CodeDeploy Introduces Blue/Green Deployments」。

BlueGreenDeployment 的目的不計成本想辦法把上線的 downtime 壓到最低,而且當出問題時 rollback 的時間壓到最低的方法:

One of the challenges with automating deployment is the cut-over itself, taking software from the final stage of testing to live production. You usually need to do this quickly in order to minimize downtime.

Blue-green deployment also gives you a rapid way to rollback - if anything goes wrong you switch the router back to your blue environment.

其實就是直接跑兩個環境 (所以成本比較高),一套跑舊的一套跑新的,然後在前面的 load balancer 切換:

The blue-green deployment approach does this by ensuring you have two production environments, as identical as possible.

Facebook 備份 MySQL 資料並且確認正確性的方法

Facebook 再多花了一些篇幅數對於 MySQL 資料備份以及確認正確性的方法:「Continuous MySQL backup validation: Restoring backups」。

首先是 Continuous Restore Tier (CRT) 這塊,可以看到他們在這塊很仰賴 HDFS 當作備份的第一層基地,包括了 Full logical backups (用 mysqldump)、Differential (diff) backups 以及 Binary log (binlog) backups (stream 進 HDFS)。

另外上了 GTID,對於後續的處理會比較方便:

All of our database servers also use global transaction IDs (GTIDs), which gives us another layer of control when replaying transactions from binlog backups.

在 CRT 這塊可以看到其實是拿現成的工具堆起來,不同單位會因為規模而有不同的作法。真正的重點反而在 ORC Restore Coordinator (ORC) 這塊,可以看到 Facebook 開發了大量的程式將回復這件事情自動化處理:

在收到回復的需求後,可以看到 Peon 會從 HDFS 拉資料出來,並且用 binlog replay 回去:

Peons contain all relevant logic for retrieving backups from HDFS, loading them into their local MySQL instance, and rolling them forward to a certain point in time by replaying binlogs. Each restore job a peon works on goes through these five stages[.]

也是因為 Facebook 對 MySQL 的用量大到需要自動化這些事情,才有這些東西...
