Zmanda introduces Windows Edition of MySQL Backup and Recovery Solution

Latest version of company’s ZRM Enterprise for MySQL software extends backup and recovery protection to LAMP stack and popular MySQL-based applications.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and Storage Networking World, DALLAS, October 13, 2008 — Zmanda™ the leader in open source backup and recovery software, today announced the immediate availability of Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) Enterprise version 3.0 for MySQL. The introduction of ZRM 3.0 adds to ZRM’s traditional mixed-environment edition and extends the application’s use to pure Windows environments. ZRM 3.0 also extends Zmanda’s portfolio of Linux platform support with the addition of Ubuntu and Debian Linux; application support for popular MySQL-based software packages such as KnowledgeTree is now available.

“Zmanda’s enhanced backup and recovery capabilities provide significant benefits for KnowledgeTree users,” said Daniel Chalef, chief executive officer, KnowledgeTree. “With the release of version 3.0, Zmanda Recovery Manager for MySQL can now provide hot backup and point-in-time recovery of the KnowledgeTree document repository, directory and configuration files, as well as data contained in the embedded MySQL database. This integrated backup and restore management functionality will make it easier for KnowledgeTree users to secure and recover their important company data.”

ZRM 3.0 performs hot backups of live MySQL databases by leveraging the advanced file systems’ and storage snapshot technologies. The comprehensive portfolio of supported snapshot technologies — which currently include Linux LVM, Solaris ZFS, Microsoft VSS, Symantec VxFS and NetApp SnapManager — will now include EMC Clariion SnapView to enable MySQL database administrators to create point-in-time copies of file systems to protect mission-critical data.

“Today’s corporate IT department supports a heterogeneous combination of hardware and software — and Windows is obviously a key infrastructure platform,” said Robin Schumacher, director of product management for Sun Microsystems’ database group. “With the introduction of the Windows edition of ZRM for MySQL, Zmanda is addressing a significant market-need for a MySQL database backup and recovery solution.”

Supporting XP, 2003 and Vista servers, the Windows edition of ZRM 3.0 runs logical and Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS)-based snapshots and logs all backup information in Windows event logs. ZRM 3.0 uses the compression and encryption available natively on the Windows backup server.

“ZRM is the only backup solution endorsed by MySQL and Zmanda was named the 2008 MySQL Partner of the Year in recognition of the work we’ve done to support their community,” said Dmitri Joukovski, vice president of product management, Zmanda. “Adding a Windows edition and extensive application support to the already robust ZRM backup solution further demonstrates our commitment to supporting MySQL users.”

ZRM is an open source, enterprise-class backup and recovery software designed to help MySQL database administrators (DBAs) prevent the serious damage caused by data loss in the event of human error and system or database failure. ZRM is designed specifically for MySQL databases and includes unique, enterprise-grade features such as MySQL storage engine and snapshot intelligence, replication support, and integration of backup operations with MySQL binary logs. ZRM comes with the Zmanda Management Console — a powerful Web-based graphical user interface that lets DBAs control backup and recovery across all MySQL servers from any browser enabled device.

Targeted at mid-sized and enterprise customers, ZRM 3.0 is available now through Zmanda’s online store. Pricing for both the mixed-environment and Windows editions starts at $300 per server. Snapshot options for NetApp SnapManager and EMC Clariion are available at a starting price of $250 per MySQL server. For more information, please contact zmandasales@betsol.comor visit
