Verify MySQL Backups With TwinDB Backup Tool

By Maksym Kryva.

If you don’t verify backups you may safely assume you don’t have them.

It often happens that MySQL backups can be invalid or broken due to a software bug, or some hidden corruption. If you are lucky enough, hours and days will be needed to resurrect a database from a bad backup copy. If you ran out of luck quota, you may lose a lot of data. Hence the importance of data backup verification. Not many companies do backups, and even less verify them. To make the verification problem easier, we have added a verify command to the TwinDB Backup Tool.

What the command does is that it takes a backup copy, restores it, prepares (applies redo logs, fixes permissions and so on) and runs a MySQL instance on it. Then it checks if the recovered database is healthy. You can …

MySQL Backup Strategies and Tools – MinervaDB Webinar

MinervaDB Webinar – MySQL Backup Strategies and Tools 

Most often Database Systems outages happen due to user error and it is also the biggest reason for data loss / damage or corruption. In these type of failures, It is application modifying or destroying the data on its own or through a user choice. Hardware failure also contributes to database infrastructure crashes and corruption.

Azure VM Application Consistent MySQL DB Disk Snapshots


Backup of Database is the pillar of our system which is necessary and mandatory to provide us data incase of crash, new machine provisioning and many other scenarios listed here
As part of the backup process, a snapshot is taken, and the data is transferred to the Recovery Services vault with no impact on production workloads. The snapshot provides different levels of consistency, as described below: 1. Application-consistent: App-consistent backups capture memory content and pending I/O operations. App-consistent snapshots use a VSS writer (or pre/post scripts for Linux) to ensure the consistency of the app data before a backup occurs. When you're recovering a VM with an app-consistent snapshot, the VM boots up. There's no data corruption or loss. The apps start in a consistent state. 2. File-system consistent: File-system consistent backups provide …
