ZRM Community Edition 3.0 (Beta) with Parallel Logical Backup Support for MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are pleased to announce the release of Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) Community Edition 3.0 (Beta). This release features support for parallel logical backups as an additional full backup method, which is made possible by integrating with the mydumper open source project.  This backup method represents a faster, scalable way to backup large databases.  The mysqldump (single threaded logical backup) support is still available for backing up stored procedures/routines.  ZRM Community Edition allows you to create multiple backup sets with different backup methods and policies; so, now you can do MySQL database backups with mydumper, as well as mysqldump in the same server.

We have also made many additional improvements and bug fixes since our earlier 2.2 release. We currently

As MySQL continues to grow (as a technology and as an ecosystem) the need and importance of creating and deploying robust MySQL backup solutions grows as well. In many circles Zmanda is known as “The MySQL Backup Company”. While we provide backup of a wide variety of environments, we gladly take the label of backing up the most popular open source database in the world, especially as we kick off our presence at the 2012 MySQL Conference.

Here are some of the updates to our MySQL backup technologies that we are announcing at the conference:

Zmanda Cloud Backup adds Tokyo as its latest cloud storage location
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are adding support for Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region in Zmanda Cloud Backup (ZCB). This is the fifth worldwide location supported by ZCB.

This support provides faster uploads for ZCB users in Japan. Throughput will be significantly higher because of less hops along the way and very high bandwidth connections typically available in Japan. Overall processing will be faster because of lower latency (expected to be single digit millisecond latency for most end users in Japan).

Cloud Backup to Three Continents Now Includes Japan

This support enables users to ensure that their data does not leave Japan, e.g. if required for

MySQL Backup Webinar Series: Scalable backup of live databases
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Setting up of a good backup and recovery strategy is crucial for any serious MySQL implementation. This strategy can vary from site to site based on various factors including size of the database, rate of change, security needs, retention and other compliance policy etc. In general, it is also required from MySQL DBAs to have least possible impact on usability and performance of the database at the time of backup - i.e MySQL and its dependent applications should remain hot during backup.

Join MySQL backup experts from Zmanda for two webinars dedicated to hot backup of MySQL:

MySQL Backup Essentials: In this webinar, we will go over best practices for backing up live MySQL databases. We will also cover Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL product

Taking a Snapshot of a Thousand Dancing Dolphins
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

An increasing number of large MySQL applications, e.g. social networking and SaaS back-ends, use a distributed MySQL architecture. MySQL data is distributed logically or heuristically on multiple, and in some cases thousands of, real or virtual servers. Backing up such large and dynamic environments presents its own complexities.

In this blog, we will use the cluster terminology - but we do not imply that NDB Cluster storage engine is being used for MySQL. Most implementations use InnoDB for data and MyISAM for dictionary. Typical architecture for such applications uses Database Sharding - i.e. shared-nothing partitioning of data across similarly configured nodes.

In most sharded environments, high availability is built-in - i.e. the cluster can continue to answer the queries and commit the transactions of all users in face of a node failure. This is typically accomplished either by

Fast Backups of MySQL Running on Amazon EC2
+2 Vote Up -1Vote Down

If you are running your MySQL databases on the Amazon EC2 compute cloud, Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL can perform fast full backups of these databases by using Elastic Block Store (EBS) Snapshots. ZRM takes only a momentary read lock on the MySQL database during the creation of the snapshot, in order to ensure consistency of the backed up database archive. MySQL Backups using Amazon EBS snapshots are differential backups, meaning that only the blocks that have changed since your last full backup (via EBS snapshot) will be saved. For example, if you have a database with 100 GBs of data, but only 5 GBs of data has changed since your last snapshot, only the 5 additional GBs of snapshot data will be stored back to Amazon S3 during the current full backup run.
