MySQL Utilities Make a DBA More Efficient and Productive

MySQL Utilities provide a collection of command line utilities that make it easy for database administrators to maintain and administer MySQL servers. The utilities perform a range of otherwise complex operations via a simple command, making DBAs more efficient and productive.

There are utilities for copying databases, comparing databases running on different servers, checking disk usage and for redundant or duplicate indexes, automatic failover, verifying replication configuration, cloning a running server, and working with audit logs. You can use all these utilities either standalone or with MySQL Workbench.

You can learn about MySQL Utilities and much more by taking the MySQL for Database Administrators course. This highly popular 5-day instructor-led course is available in the following training formats:

MySQL - An Excellent Choice for a Low Cost Embedded Database

MySQL is an excellent choice for a low cost embedded database. Over 3,000 ISVs, OEMs and VARs choose MySQL for this purpose and benefit from significant cost savings when compared to using a competing database product.

The MySQL for Developers training course teaches you how to plan, design and implement applications using MySQL. Expert Oracle University instructors teach you through realistic examples, interactive instruction and hands-on exercises.

This course brings you lots of interesting facts. For example, the 'libmysqld' library is effectively a MySQL server in its own right. it is shipped as part of the standard MySQL installation. Developers with C/C++ ability can embed this library easily within their applications and it can do most of what a standard cient/server installation can do, with notable exceptions being the lack of replication capability and a limit on the number of simultaneous client connections. You can find out more about using embedded databases in MySQL by downloading this white paper.

You can take the MySQL for Developers course as a:

Oracle Selects Pearson VUE to Deliver MySQL Certification Exams

Effective June 1, 2011, MySQL certification exams will be offered exclusively through a new test delivery partner — Pearson VUE — and will no longer be available through Prometric. This will consolidate all Oracle Certification exams within the operations of a single testing vendor so we can provide better service and global testing coverage for these Oracle certification exams. Pearson VUE currently has over 5,000 test centers worldwide in 165 countries.

To help prepare you for this transition, here are some important dates for you to be aware of:
  • If you are currently following a certification path and are planning to take an exam on/after June 1: Registration has began at Pearson VUE on May 16, 2011 for all scheduled exams on or after June 1. Visit pearsonvue.com/oracle to create a new web account and get started.
  • If you are currently registered to take an exam with Prometric or planning to take an exam before June 1: You can continue to register at Prometric through May 23, 2011 (walk-in registrations will be permitted through May 31, 2011), but you must complete your exam by May 31, 2011.
  • If you currently have a Sun or Oracle exam voucher or exam retake voucher: All vouchers will still be valid through their original expiration date and are redeemable with Pearson VUE starting on May 16, 2011.
If you have taken exams with Prometric, it's important to create a new Pearson VUE account so you can access your certification history and register for new exams after the transition. Read the announcement and the FAQ for additional details.
