Zmanda Recovery Manager for MySQL & MariaDB

Data protection is vital to database professionals. A well-run database must have proper backup and recovery plans to ensure data availability and integrity in case of accidental data loss or destruction. In today’s business environment, explosive data growth combined with shorter backup and recovery windows makes the task more difficult. And, with MySQL/ MariaDB supporting businesses running full throttle 24-hours a day, seven days a week, backup and recovery operations need to be conducted in such a way that is non-disruptive to users and applications.


ZRM for MySQL & MariaDB simplifies the life of a database administrator who needs an easy-to-use yet flexible and robust backup and recovery solution. ZRM is the only solution endorsed by MySQL & MariaDB.

Non-Blocking Backups:

ZRM provides support for non-blocking backups of MySQL using Percona XtraBackup and for MariaDB using MariaBackup. This combination provides resource utilization management by providing throttling based on the number of IO operations per second. Percona XtraBackup and MariaBackup based backups also allow for table level recovery even though the backup was done at the database level (needs the recovery database server to be Percona Server with XtraDB).

Incremental Backups (based on MySQL Binary Logs) | MySQL Backup Restore | Zmanda
Incremental Backups (based on MySQL & MariaDB Binary Logs):

ZRM integrates various full backup methods with incremental backups using MySQL & MariaDB Binary Logs. This allows you to take very frequent backups (e.g. hourly) as well as do a point-in-time restore between any two backups. No read or write lock is taken during incremental backups.
