Snapshots for Backup

Uses Snapshots For Backups

Backing up from snapshots provides a logical copy of a file system at a point in time. ZRM for MySql and MariaDB allows you to choose where to store backups for instance a local disk, a disk array, or a NAS device. ZRM helps in storing snapshots on the same volume as the original data and enables almost instantaneous recovery.

Data Encryption

Data Encryption

Encryption on the client ensures the security of data in transit and encryption on the backup server ensures the security of data at rest, e.g., on a tape or a Cloud. ZRM supports up to 4096-bit keys with public-key cryptography as well as 256-bit AES encryption.

Backup With ZRM

ZRM provides several ways to back up MySQL. A logical backup captures the output of the mysqldump utility and supports all MySQL storage engines except NDB. You can restore a logical backup to a platform different from the original. For example, a backup of a MySQL database running on an RHEL x86 system can be restored to a MySQL database running on a Solaris Sparc system.

Consider raw backups if you want minimal database downtime or if your database size is really large. Raw backups can take advantage of filesystem-level snapshots to shorten backup times. Also, the backup size of a raw backup is the same as the size of the data being backed up. If you have a large database and/or high transaction volume, you should consider using the quick snapshot option. This reduces backup time further because the filesystem snapshot becomes the backup and is not copied to the ZRM server.

ZRM for MySql and MariaDB makes it easy to run a mix of full or incremental backups. Full backups include all data in a database, whereas incremental backups capture the changes since the last successful backup.
