    Amazon migrates more than 100 consumer services from Oracle to AWS databases / TechCrunch – Tuesday, 15 October - 15:21

AWS and Oracle love to take shots at each other, but as much as Amazon has knocked Oracle over the years, it was forced to admit that it was in fact a customer. Today in a company blog post , the company announced it was shedding Oracle for AWS databases, and had effectively turned off its final Oracle database.

The move involved 75 petabytes of internal data stored in nearly 7,500 Oracle databases, according to the company. “I am happy to report that this database migration effort is now complete. Amazon’s Consumer business just turned off its final Oracle database (some third-party applications are tightly bound to Oracle and were not migrated),” AWS’s Jeff Barr wrote in the company blog post announcing the migration.

Over the last several years, the company has been working to move off of Oracle databases, but it’s not an easy task to move projects on Amazon scale. Barr wrote there were lots of reasons the company wanted to make the move. “Over the years we realized that we were spending too much time managing and scaling thousands of legacy Oracle databases. Instead of focusing on high-value differentiated work, our database administrators (DBAs) spent a lot of time simply keeping the lights on while transaction rates climbed and the overall amount of stored data mounted,” he wrote.

More than 100 consumer services have been moved to AWS databases including customer-facing tools like Alexa, Amazon Prime and Twitch among others. It also moved internal tools like AdTech, its fulfillment system, external payments and ordering. These are not minor matters. They are the heart and soul of Amazon’s operations.

Each team moved the Oracle database to an AWS database service like Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Aurora, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), and Amazon Redshift. Each group was allowed to choose the service they wanted, based on its individual needs and requirements.

    The spirit of eugenics is still with us, as immigrants know to their cost | Kenan Malik / TheGuardian – Sunday, 6 October - 06:00

Fostered in Britain and America a century ago, this discredited ethos has found new victims

Birth control. Intelligence tests. Town planning. Immigration controls. It’s striking how much of contemporary life has been shaped, at least in part, by the eugenics movement, as Eugenics: Science’s Greatest Scandal , a two-part BBC documentary by science writer Angela Saini and disability campaigner Adam Pearson, which began last week, usefully reminds us.

Following our previous post. The owner of the French #server that was hosting the XMPP server and pod is turning of his server at the end of the month.

The server has just been merged with the XMPP server (they are handled by the same ejabberd instance) and the pod will be turned off and redirected to for now.

    Home encryption and file access for external services on Debian

    Timothée Jaussoin – Monday, 13 November, 2017 - 10:18

Little trick (and reminder for me). After using ecryptfs-migrate-home on my Debian machine to #encrypt my /home partition I found out that #nginx was not able to access projects that were hosted in this partition.

Thanks to this GitHub Gitst by jhjguxin it seems that the #migration change the rights on the directory to 700 which prevent nginx to access files within it properly.

To fix that you should at least allow read #access.

# chmod 701 /home/user

Et voilà :)

The migration of the #XMPP #Movim server from #Metronome to #ejabberd is close to be done and most of the services are up again, sorry for the connectivity issues that you had those pas few days.

I'll write a longer post about that #migration in the upcomign days on the official Movim blog.

    The honking of Canadian geese overhead caught my attention just long enough for my to snap this shot. Too bad I couldn't get a good photo of their V-formation, as they're quite disorganized in this...

    Quelques nouvelles concernant Movim

    Timothée Jaussoin – Wednesday, 8 March, 2017 - 22:47

Je n'ai pas donné beaucoup de nouvelles ces dernières semaines, en particulier concernant le projet Movim. J'ai en effet été pas mal occupé, notamment par un déménagement et des démarches administratives.

Ne vous en faites pas, après cette petite pause, je me remet progressivement au travail. En particulier pour préparer la prochaine release, Movim 0.11. Celle-ci à déjà été repoussée de quelques semaines à cause d'un sérieux bug de gestion des cookies qui s'est soldé par une profonde refonte du système de session au sein du projet.

Néanmoins le code ne devrait plus trop évoluer ces prochaines semaines, vous avez donc entre les mains une version proche de la 0.11 finale.

Des travaux de maintenance et de mises à jour sur les serveurs du projet m'ont également occupés ces derniers temps. Je prépare, entre autres, une migration des deux serveurs XMPP et de Metronome à ejabberd ( en priorité). Ce projet devrait encore prendre quelques mois puisque des adaptations doivent êtes faites sur les outils de migration entre ces deux serveurs.

Si vous avez des questions, n'hésitez pas à poster un commentaire ou venir en discuter sur le salon officiel.
