Taking To The Road To Move PHL RE Forward

Taking To The Road To Move PHL RE Forward 768 487 Exist Software Labs

As part of the Philippine delegation comprising of representatives from the Department of Energy (DOE), the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and the Philippine Electricity Market Corporation (PEMC), Exist, a global consulting and enterprise IT solutions leader, advanced to the Technical Consultation on the Implementation on the Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) and the Philippine Renewable Energy Market held at California, USA last September 2019.

Led by Undersecretary Felix Fuentebella of the Department of Energy, along with representatives from various agencies in the energy sector, the Technical Consultation (TechCon) was particularly laid-out to be a capacity-building event for DOE, PEMC, and related agencies to implement the Renewable Energy Market (REM) and the RPS policy to strategize on the introduction of enhancements to the REM. Also, the event intended to introduce related markets and mechanisms for RE development in the future.

The said event included various stops in California. At each stop, the group was treated to lectures, discussions, and interactions with experts on various topics related to RE market management. 

The itinerary took the group on a quick California tour to the offices of six (6) public and private agencies that included the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), the counterpart government agencies such as the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and industry participants including Sacramento Municipality Utilities District (SMUD), MCE, Clearway, and 3 Degrees.

Chriss Silerio, Exist’s Vice President for Operations and tour participant asserted that, “It was an honor and privilege to be part of this group charged with bringing home valuable insights in moving the Philippine RE market development forward from ideal concepts to a strategic standpoint. As a developing market, we are at a point where we can balance our very own RE project between innovation and benchmark with existing markets,”.

In the post-event report released internally, the group paid particular attention to how the introduction of new market enhancements paves the way to enabling the typical Filipino consumer to be active participants and transforming them into “pro-sumers” opting for RE over traditional energy.

“As the technology partner for the DOE and Philippine Renewable Energy Market, we consider ourselves not only as committed proponents but direct beneficiaries of this project as well,” Mr. Silerio added.

“We’re committed to put all our resources to ensure its success and only by continuing to take advantage of learning opportunities will we be able to put our software engineers in a better position to design and create the platforms that satisfy not only current requirements but one that is prepared for the future as well,” he concluded.

D2iQ (formerly Mesosphere), a leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud platforms that enable smarter Day 2 operations, alongside Exist, a global consulting and enterprise IT solutions leader, is set to host the first-ever “Day 2 Cloud-Native Event in Manila” on the 10th of October, Thursday, at Ascott Hotel, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

Upholding the theme “Driving Business Success through Cloud-Native Architecture”, the event is tailored to present the benefits of cloud-native technologies and the approaches for enterprises to embrace prevailing open-source innovations while achieving long-term success. It brings a mix of keynote presentations, strategic use cases, business stories, and technical analysis from cloud-native experts of D2iQ, Exist, and Voyager Innovations. 

“We are thrilled to make history as we are about to hold the very first Day 2 Cloud-Native Event in Manila. We have been looking forward to introducing our new brand and product portfolio especially to organizations that are at the early stages of exploring cloud and container technologies,” expressed Sam Chen, APJ RVP, D2iQ.

In early August, Mesosphere has changed its name to D2iQ (Day-2-IQ), reflecting a new strategy to bring cloud capabilities to the enterprise. The D2iQ strategy includes: Ksphere, a solution category tailor-made to deliver advanced capabilities for application orchestration leveraging a foundation of Kubernetes; Datasphere, a data-centric set of solutions which are centered around requirements for building and maintaining large-scale data analytics and processing environments; and Mesosphere, a solution category rooted in providing a very mature foundation for massive application scale and reliability leveraging a Mesos and DC/OS foundation.

With this recent amendment, D2iQ also wanted to clasp every opportunity to impart the understanding of cloud-native technologies across its market. The company deems the event a great chance to tap into enterprises in the country that need professional assistance in venturing the platform, reintroducing its brand accompanied by its recalibrated strategy.

“Throughout the years, we found customers still need lots of help getting educated and supported around cloud-native technologies – from planning and selecting the right technologies, to the workload deployments, scaling up and maintenance. As one of the original cloud innovators, D2iQ has years of unmatched experience in driving some of the world’s largest cloud deployments with a focus on scalability, resilience, governance, and security. With the enterprise-grade technologies, training, services, and support across a wide spectrum of cloud-native services, we are here to help more Philippines enterprises during their cloud-native journey as a trusted partner,” D2iQ explained. 

Among the expected attendees are IT heads from some of the foremost companies in the industry within the Philippines. An interactive panel discussion rounds out the event where attendees have the opportunity to share and exchange ideas and best practices, and network with fellow tech enthusiasts.

Exist, being one of the front liners in forwarding such technology, also shared its end-goal in taking a part in initiating this event.

“The underlying idea is to leverage emerging technologies to help large enterprises accelerate their cloud-native journey. As an early go to market partner with D2iQ in the Philippines, our deep experience in open-source and cloud-native technologies combined with our Agile development process and successful cloud-native implementations is an essential part of creating a holistic cloud adoption strategy for our enterprise clients,” shared Michael Lim, president and CEO of Exist.

“We believe that engaging in cloud-native has a significant business value. We can help more innovative organizations have a smoother path in their cloud-native journey and accelerate their time to market through imparting our expertise and experience in enabling our enterprise clients to deliver cloud-native apps successfully.” Mr. Lim further affirmed.

For the participating firms to gain a better comprehension of the cloud-native architecture, some of the subjects to be discussed are the effective navigation and deployment of cloud-native strategy, familiarizing Kubernetes, and DC/OS practices.

Exist Provides Tech Spark For Major Renewable Energy Project 768 487 Exist Software Labs

MANILA, Philippines  — Exist, a global consulting and enterprise IT solutions leader, is currently working on the development of the country’s landmark nationwide system to establish the country’s renewable energy market (REM).

Faced with a tight bid schedule which threatened the 2019 project timeline, the Philippine Electricity Market Corporation (PEMC), the governance arm of wholesale electricity spot market (WESM) has finally found its worthy IT partner to help design and build the platform and all accompanying technical systems to run the Philippine Renewable Energy Market System (PREMS) that seeks to promote more RE-based investment locally.

“We are honored for the trust that was given to our team, for believing in our enterprise IT skills and experience to provide solutions for the local energy sector”, reveals Mike Lim, CEO of Exist.  “Working on PREMS and previously on the WESM spot market system afforded us a unique perspective and as a result, we can say we have a better understanding of the local power sector and a bountiful supply of ideas for innovative solutions that could help market participants, as well.”

Under the joint auspices of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) called Development for Renewable Energy Applications Mainstreaming and Market Sustainability (DREAMS) Project, the development of PREMS is intended to curb local greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through commercialization of the RE markets and incentivize investments in RE-based power generation projects.

“We’ve assembled our best software minds and utilized knowledge of up and coming technologies to ensure that we deliver a complete system that is perfectly capable to carry out PREMS’ supportive policies and regulatory requirements”,  adds Mr. Lim. “As per practice, we keep close coordination with all partners concerned, working out changes to ensure that we still deliver within schedule.”

In 2008, The Philippine Renewable Energy Act was passed which aimed to elevate the use of renewable energy resources and its capacity development yet in many ways, adoption and preferential use of RE is still very much in a transition phase.

Mr. Lim further adds, “We are aware of the significance of this project, not only for its alternative power-providing component but for the focus this brings towards a cleaner environment and a sustainable future.”

We cannot afford any more delays. We understand this is also about doing our part as a nation to contribute towards the health of our planet”, concludes Mike.

Feeling Cold from MySQL Backups that Take Forever? Hot Backups to the Rescue!

Feeling Cold from MySQL Backups that Take Forever? Hot Backups to the Rescue! 768 487 Exist Software Labs

Many business entities have entrusted their data to MySQL, and for certain use cases, this is a sound choice. If you need an RDBMS for basic transaction processing that does not involve complex tasks and does not require full SQL standard compliance, then MySQL may be right for you (for enterprise-scale workloads, Postgres is the only choice). In fact, Facebook and YouTube have used MySQL for a while now, just to name a couple.

However, there is a conundrum that commonly afflicts MySQL users when their data suddenly assumes massive proportions (terabyte range): long backups and the database unavailability that goes along with it.

Simply copying the data files to a backup location will result in internal data inconsistency since data may have been added or changed while the copying was taking place. An alternative to this is stopping the database and performing the backup, which renders the database unavailable! Availability is the rage and rendering the database unusable is very much unacceptable. And even if, by a stroke of luck, management allows for some downtime, the slowness of MySQL’s native backup mechanism would eventually cause anybody to reconsider.

managed IT services

Consider this actual scenario from one of our clients, a large retail outfit in Southeast Asia. Their POS transactions are fed into a MySQL database that is involved in a replication cluster. The database has grown to 2 TB in size and their backups take 15 hours to complete–if at all. The backup process encroaches in upon operating hours and they are forced to just kill the backup. The problem escalates when the Slave server needs to be refreshed (often by lost binary logs preventing it from synchronizing with the Master) since resetting replication involves restoring a backup of the Master on the Slave node. What to do??!!

Enter hot backups and Percona’s Xtrabackup!

Percona XtraBackup

A hot backup is a database backup that can be performed while the database is online.

From Percona’s website:

“Percona XtraBackup is a free, online, open source, complete database backups solution for all versions of Percona Server for MySQL and MySQL®. Percona XtraBackup performs online non-blocking, tightly compressed, highly secure full backups on transactional systems so that applications remain fully available during planned maintenance windows.”

Xtrabackup solved the problem for this retail giant, reducing the backup time from 15 hours to 4 hours! Database availability was no longer an issue and re-establishing replication is now a fast and straightforward endeavor.

The following are the basic steps to beating the cold:

  1. Simply install the tool: https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/LATEST/installation.html.
  2. Create a backup directory if one does not yet exist like so, for example: mkdir /var/lib/mysql-backup.
  3. Run the utility: innobackupex –user=root –password=<password> /var/lib/mysql-backup.
  4. Apply the binary logs. For example: innobackupex –apply-log /var/lib/mysql-backup/2018-10-04_15-05-25, “2018-10-04_15-05-25” being the directory where the utility created the backup.

MuleSoft Manila Meetup 768x487 1

Starting the 2019 Right With First MuleSoft PH Meetup

Starting the 2019 Right With First MuleSoft PH Meetup 768 487 Exist Software Labs

Technically, this is the fourth meetup already but for 2019 it’s the first one. To find out what’s the big deal about MuleSoft, we tagged along with our resident certified MuleSoft developers, ‘Muleys’ to attend the Manila MuleSoft first meetup (Journey to Success with Mule) for 2019.  Here’s what we learned and discovered.

1. Pursuing digital transformation?  API integration is life.

Any business that runs some kind of software is more or less using more than one type already. Software has this snowball effect in companies that once you start to see the value of one, it will only be a matter of time before you think of getting another one and so on and so forth.  What this usually amounts to is having systems that perform for one specific task and doesn’t care about what the other software/s are helping with.

Like the human body, every company is an ecosystem that needs to function in sync with the different body parts. There is a need to connect and integrate the parts, most especially software, in order to optimize how the whole entity performs.  And Application Programming Interface (API) just makes integration between systems easier.  It’s an integral part of what digital transformation of companies is all about.

2. Pay big attention to using Microservices

The first topic discussed during the meetup was the importance of using microservices. And for good reason.

Think of it this way, while the use of APIs ultimately holds most applications together as required by enterprises, microservices is the way enterprises can build applications rapidly which in turn create new services.

Without getting to specifics, microservices is like creating applications using Lego blocks while traditional applications are single slabs of concrete.  If I were in the right frame of mind, I’d be leaning towards using microservices. Anyway, you can read more about them Microservices.

3. Software development without actual coding (again)

Will there come a time when this actually becomes the reality?  Probably, because this has been a constant tech trend (even though a lot will probably be just hype).  This time it is RAML which stands for Restful API Modeling Language – for managing the entire API lifecycle from design to sharing.  What’s even cooler is their Creative Laziness Whoa! and I’ll leave you to discover this for yourself.

[vc_single_image image=”21430″ img_size=”medium”][vc_single_image image=”21436″ img_size=”medium”]

Here’s the deck used during the meetup:

Overall, the MuleSoft meetup is as good as meetups can be.  It started on time. There’s plenty of food and drinks and the hosts, WhiteSky Labs, did a great job at making sure that the presentations are not just informative but entertaining as well. (Loved the free blue shirt for the 1st 50 participants as well)

Looking forward to attending again. Hopefully, we get to hear more about some use cases and business values from projects leveraging MuleSoft next time.
