  • tidb

    TiDB is an open source distributed HTAP database compatible with the MySQL protocol

    Project mention: Comparing Nginx Performance in Bare Metal and Virtual Environments | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-29

    I do agree with you in that regard, however, that's also a dangerous line of thinking.

    There are attempts to provide horizontal scalability for RDBMSes in a transparent way, like TiDB https://pingcap.com/ (which is compatible with the MySQL 5.7 drivers), however, the list of functionality that's sacrificed to achieve easily extensible clusters is a long one: https://docs.pingcap.com/tidb/stable/mysql-compatibility

    There are other technologies, like MongoDB, which sometimes are more successful at a clustered configuration, however most of the traditional RDBMSes work best in a leader-follower type of replication scenario, because even those aforementioned systems oftentimes have data consistency issues that may eventually pop up.

    Essentially, my argument is that the lack of good horizontally scalable databases or other data storage solutions is easily explainable by the fact that the problem itself isn't solvable in any easy way, apart from adopting eventual consistency, which is probably going to create more problems than it will solve in case of any pre-existing code that makes assumptions about what ways it'll be able to access data and operate on it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacies_of_distributed_compu...

    To that end, i'd perhaps like to suggest an alternative: use a single vertically scalable RDBMS instance when possible, with a hot standby if you have the resources for that. Let the architecture around it be horizontally scalable instead, and let it deal with the complexities of balancing the load and dealing with backpressure - introduce a message queue if you must, maybe even an in-memory one for simplicity's sake, or consider an event based architecture where "what needs to be done" is encapsulated within a data structure that can be passed around and applied whenever possible. In my eyes, such solutions can in many cases be better than losing the many benefits of having a single source of truth.

    Alternatively, consider sharding as a possibility, or, alternatively, do some domain driven design, figure out where to draw some boundaries and split your service into multiple ones that cover the domain with which you need to work with. Then you have one DB for sales, one for account management, one for reports and so on, all separated by something as simple as REST interfaces and with rate limits or any of the other mechanisms.

    If, however, neither of those two groups of approaches don't seem to be suitable for the loads that you're dealing with, then you probably have a team of very smart people and a large amount of resources to figure out what will work best.

    To sum up, if there are no good solutions in the space, perhaps that's because the problems themselves haven't been solved yet. Thus, sooner or later, they'll need to be sidestepped and their impact mitigated in whatever capacity is possible.

  • OpenFaaS

    OpenFaaS - Serverless Functions Made Simple

    Project mention: Flunked out of FAANG (zing!) and realized that my 6 years of experience have been spent with my head firmly lodged within my ass. Below is my plan to unfuck myself. Feedback appreciated. | reddit.com/r/ExperiencedDevs | 2022-01-21

    Learning Kubernetes (K8s) for me was about getting pissed off enough at Bezos for all the money he was making off of me lol. I wanted to have my own little infrastructure that I control but without having to babysit it. I tried Docker Swarm, which was nice but wasn’t translating into professional-grade cluster experience. I found a project called Open FAAS that let me deploy my own Lambda/serverless. It ran on K8s. So, I followed a few tutorials on K3s (a lightweight version of K8s for the pi) and deployed it with K3sup. The OpenFAAS project, K8s, and Docker are written in Golang, so I learned some of that with A Tour Of Go. After branching out into the K8s world for a bit, I decided to get my Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD). I took this Udemy course and passed the test on the first go. You’ll learn just about everything you’ll need to know about K8s from that experience.

    Project mention: Azure Container Apps - CI/CD deployments (Video Demo) | dev.to | 2022-01-11

    Azure Container Apps is a container orchestration platform for deploying modern applications and microservices. With Azure Container Apps you can deploy your containerized apps without the need to take on the overhead of managing the infrastructure of the underlying systems. This service is still in preview, but provides you with the ability to use your preferred language or framework to build microservices with support for Distributed Application Runtime (Dapr). There's also scaling of your containers with Kubernetes Event-Driven Autoscaling (KEDA).

  • up

    Deploy infinitely scalable serverless apps, apis, and sites in seconds to AWS.

    Project mention: Ask HN: Does anyone else find the AWS Lambda developer experience poor? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-18

    I can also recommend serverless.com framework for local development and running lambdas offline.

    AWS provides a docker image for emulating DynamoDB which works great for local dev and will commonly be paired with lambdas.

    Another option I have used recently for implementing node web services is https://github.com/apex/up which also has a nice local dev experience.

    Project mention: Tron deposit | reddit.com/r/ledgerwallet | 2021-04-27

    The ledger Tron proxy is not working so you will have your money but the ledger live can't see it. I'm not sure if anyone has logged a ticket, but I do believe if you go into developer options in ledger live you can make it connect directly to iron.io and that will resolve it. Only works on desktop though. I'm also getting some other errors randomly so perhaps there are some bigger issues. Anyway, I'd suggest the dev option to check it out.

    There are also packages available through AUR/homebrew and the like: https://ops.city/downloads .

    The script is only there facilitate the 'install' such as ensuring you have qemu installed locally or assessing whether you have kvm/hvf rights/etc.

    Also, I don't think this is documented yet but you can target various PRs/builds with ops via this way:
