Oracle Database on OpenShift

By Franck Pachot

.
In a previous post I described the setup of MiniShift on my laptop in order to run OpenShift for test purpose. I even pulled the Oracle Database image from the Docker Store. But the goal is to import it into OpenShift to deploy it from the Image Stream.

Google Cloud Spanner – inserting data

By Franck Pachot

.
In a previous post I’ve created a Google Cloud Spanner database and inserted a few rows from the GUI. This is definitely not a solution fo many rows and here is a post about using the command line.

If I start the Google Shell from the icon on the Spanner page for my project, everything is set. But if I run it from elsewhere, using the https://console.cloud.google.com/cloudshell as I did in A free persistent Google Cloud service with Oracle XE I have to set the project:

franck_pachot@cloudshell:~$ gcloud config set project superb-avatar-210409
Updated property [core/project].

Google Cloud Spanner – no decimal numeric data types

By Franck Pachot

.
Google Cloud Spanner is a distributed relational database focused on scalability without compromising consistency and integrity. It is available only as a managed service in Google Cloud. Basically, the idea is to keep the scalability advantages of NoSQL database (like Bigtable) but adding transactions, relational tables, SQL, structured data,… as in the relational databases we love for decades.
The commercial pitch includes all the NoSQL buzzwords, with the addition of the legacy properties of SQL databases:
Cloud Spanner is a fully managed, mission-critical, relational database service that offers transactional consistency at global scale, schemas, SQL (ANSI 2011 with extensions), and automatic, synchronous replication for high availability.
Here I’m testing something that is not mentioned, but is taken for granted with all SQL databases: the ability to add numbers without erroneous arithmetic results.
