Flexible Recovery

Flexible Backups

ZRM for MySQL & MariaDB optimizes backup and restore operations on MySQL/ MariaDB Databases. It provides full flexibility to individually leverage native MySQL/OS backup tools, levels, scheduling, etc. It activates Continuous Data Protection (CDP) to enable instantaneous point-in-time recovery.

Continuous Data Protection

Continuous Data Protection

ZRM is designed for fast and scalable Backups of Large Databases. Deep integration between ZRM, underlying storage, and MySQL & MariaDB binary logs enables you to perform highly efficient CDP with almost instantaneous point-in-time recovery.

Backup Scheduling | Customized Solutions | 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 Proprietary Formats

Reporting & Scheduling Capabilities

ZRM for MySQL & MariaDB can schedule backup runs immediately or in daily/weekly/monthly intervals (even every 15 minutes). It automatically generates backup reports which include standard and custom backup reports.

Snapshots for Backup

Storage Snapshot support for Full Backups

ZRM allows you to perform a hot backup of live MySQL & MariaDB by taking advantage of Linux LVM, Microsoft VSS, Solaris ZFS, Symantec VxFS, NetApp SnapManager, and EMC SnapView technologies.

Non-Blocking Backups

ZRM for MySql and MariaDB provides support for non-blocking backups of MySQL using Percona XtraBackup and for MariaDB using MariaBackup. Percona XtraBackup and MariaBackup based backups allow table-level recovery even though the backup was done at the database level.

Snapshot Plugin

ZRM for MySQL & MariaDB can be licensed to use various 3rd party snapshots and storage checkpoint mechanisms to acquire a quiescent, consistent copy of the MySQL database while minimizing application downtime. Unlike other backup methods, snapshots and storage checkpoints scale well; they do not increase the backup window as databases grow.

Because snapshot and storage checkpoint mechanisms are faster than backups to other media, this reduces the time that database tables must be locked. These technologies create a consistent copy of the MySQL database with little impact on MySQL applications and thus scale well as databases grow. If the MySQL databases or tables use only transactional storage engines such as InnoDB, the time the application is locked is further reduced.

While taking snapshots of databases or tables that use non-transactional storage engines such as MyISAM, ZRM for MySQL & MariaDB flushes the database pages to the disk and obtains a read lock on the database(s) / table(s). The read lock is held only for a moment. File system I/O is stopped before taking a snapshot when the database resides on the file systems that support freeze/thaw operations such as XFS, VxFS (Veritas file systems).
