Published on

This lecture discusses how ISVs in the traditional shrink-wrapped software market can move to the cloud and provide SaaS solutions to their customers with SQL Anywhere on-demand edition providing their data managment platform. We discuss some of the reasons why an ISV and their customers would want to move to a SaaS model, some of the barriers that make this difficult for established ISV's and demonstrate how with SQL Anywhere on-demand edition ISVs can build, deploy, and manage cloud applications.

  7. 7. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 MOTIVATION
  8. 8. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Deployed Software and Embedded Databases ISVs used to deploy databases on their customer premises Each instance of the application had its own embedded database Characteristics of a good embedded database: • Embeddable • Secure • Manageable
  9. 9. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Software-as-a-Service and “Embedded” Databases ISVs are now hosting applications as a service The responsibility for running the database has shifted from the customer, to the ISV Characteristics of a good hosted database: • Hostable • Highly Available • Manageable • Secure
  10. 10. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Data Architectures for Multi-tenancy All tenants in a single, distributed database • Easier to manage • Less secure Each tenant in their own separate, isolated database • More secure • Harder to manage
  11. 11. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Benefits of Database Isolation No risk of data leakage between separate tenants Backup and restore on a tenant-by-tenant basis Schema can vary between tenants Databases can be encrypted separately Tenants can safely be given direct access to their data User permissions are managed on a tenant-by- tenant basis
  12. 12. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 ARCHITECTURE Isolated Databases in a Shared Cloud
  13. 13. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Relation to SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere • SQL Anywhere 16 is the foundation for SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition
  14. 14. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Relation to SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere • SQL Anywhere 16 is the foundation for SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition • SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition brings the power of SQL Anywhere to the cloud
  15. 15. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Relation to SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere • Manages thousands of databases through a single interface • SQL Anywhere 16 is the foundation for SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition • SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition brings the power of SQL Anywhere to the cloud
  16. 16. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 SQL Anywhere Foundation SQL Anywhere, on-demand edition is built on a strong SQL Anywhere foundation • Over 20 years experience powering ISV applications • Over 5,000,000 database seats deployed Each server is capable of running multiple databases Servers may be run on Windows or Linux Multiple servers may be run on a single host (machine) to provide process-level isolation
  17. 17. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 A Cloud of Database Servers Multiple servers are linked together to form a cloud of servers Each server maintains a full topology of all of the servers and databases in the cloud Each server tracks its databases’ CPU and IO usage, and shares it with all other servers
  18. 18. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Shared-Nothing Architecture Shared-nothing architecture Servers may be geographically distributed Mesh-network required No permanent root server
  19. 19. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Example Application Deployment Scenarios Application Server Remote Desktop Browser-based Application Thin-Client Desktop Application Thick-Client Desktop Application
  20. 20. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Single-tenant Experience Applications behave the same* whether their database is in the cloud, or on a stand-alone server Tenants are only able to see their own database
  21. 21. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Administration Tools Cloud Console • Graphical • Browser-based • Manage all servers and databases • Hosted and available from any server Command-line tools • Allows scripting and automation of cloud actions
  22. 22. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Differences with Cloud Databases All databases are upgraded to 12.0.1 when added to a cloud Some operations can only be performed with cloud tooling • ex. starting/stopping databases, setting up mirroring, etc … Some database start parameters are disabled • ex. AutoStart, CommLinks, etc… Some features are secured • ex. File-system access, xp_cmd_shell, etc… Limited results from system procedures • ex. sa_db_list, sa_conn_list, etc… Full details available in documentation
  23. 23. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 External Environments External environments are fully supported in tenant databases, but are not managed by the cloud • Administrator is responsible for ensuring the proper files (DLLs, etc) are installed on each cloud machine Remote access is a secured feature that must be manually enabled Full details available in documentation
  24. 24. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 MobiLink with Cloud Databases Tenant databases as consolidated databases • Supported • MobiLink server must be able connect to the consolidated database • Database movement could cause failed synchronizations Tenant databases as remotes • Supported • dbmlsync must be installed manually on each machine • SYNCHRONIZE statement is supported • dbmlsync must be able to directly access the offline transaction logs (for log-based sync)
  25. 25. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 CLOUD MANAGEMENT Managing Multiple Databases with Ease
  26. 26. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Administration Tools Cloud Console Graphical Browser-based Manage all servers and databases Hosted and available from any server Command-line tools Allows scripting and automation of cloud actions
  27. 27. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Dynamic Scaling Resources that make up a cloud can be dynamically scaled during runtime Add/remove databases Add/remove servers Add/remove hosts
  28. 28. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Auto-start Databases can be set to auto-start Database automatically starts on new connection Database optionally shuts down when last connection drops Allows placement of 10 times more databases on a server Useful for application with many databases that use them infrequently
  29. 29. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Balancing Load Databases can be moved between servers in order to balance workload Database movement managed by the cloud Databases remain available during a move Useful for rebalancing database workload Servers added or removed Workload of a database changes
  30. 30. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Executing Tasks Tasks are blocks of work that can be run against databases, servers, and hosts Tasks can target specific objects, or groups of objects Tasks can be run on-demand, or scheduled Examples of tasks: Custom SQL statements Start/stop databases Moving databases
  31. 31. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Backups and Maintenance Backups are managed by the cloud All backups are taken to another server in the cloud Databases can be assigned maintenance plans for more complex backup scenarios Databases can be restored easily from backups
  32. 32. (c) 2015 Independent SAP Technical User GroupAnnual Conference, 2015 Handling Software Updates Software updates can be applied remotely to all servers using the tools Clouds can run multiple versions of the software simultaneously Allows updates to be rolled-out in stages, if required
