Oracle MySQL HeatWave is an in-memory query accelerator that accelerates MySQL operations with the advantage of machine learning. With Oracle MySQL HeatWave on AWS, users can run transaction processing, analytics, and machine learning workloads in one service without using time-consuming ETL between databases. And MySQL HeatWave is the only service that combines Online Analytical Processing (OLAP), Online transaction processing (OLTP), and machine learning.

MySQL HeatWave

Oracle’s Heatwave is a service that delivers OLAP and OLTP with high performance, reliability, and security. The architecture of Heatwave consists of a MySQL DB System with HeatWave Plugin and a HeatWave Cluster with multiple nodes. HeatWave Plugin is responsible for the management and scheduling query and returning the query results to the MySQL DB System. HeatWave node will store the data and process the analytic and machine learning query. Also, it is responsible for hosting the instance of the HeatWave query processing engine. As a result, the Heatwave cluster will enable you to run OLAP, OLTP, and workloads from the same MySQL DB without ETL.

Heatwave Architecture

The access to the Machine learning by HeatWave cluster is a fully managed, highly scalable, and cost-efficient machine learning solution for data stored in MySQL. Analytics or machine learning query from MySQL Client/Application interacts to HeatWave cluster through MySQL DB System. And the results are sent back to the Client/Application through the same MySQL DB System.

Simple migration of low volume data

Preparations for importing data from AWS to MySQL HeatWave:

  1. Create and prepare Compute instances on OCI.
  2. Install migration tool MySQL Shell (the latest 8.0.x) on OCI or EC2.
  3. Check the capacity of local storage for logical dumb.
  4. Check whether the source DB is already on MySQL 8. If not, upgrade before migration.
  5. Install new MySQL HeatWave Instance on OCI.

Steps to export data from AWS

1. Connect to source instance on AWS :

Copy to Clipboard

2. Export data to VM’s local storage :

Copy to Clipboard

3. Check local disk on OCI VM, directory
