Introducing Dell™ NetVault™ Backup Plug‑in for MySQL

Dell NetVault Backup Plug‑in for MySQL – at a Glance

The Dell NetVault Backup (NetVault Backup) Plug‑in for MySQL (Plug‑in for MySQL) consolidates the backup and recovery of multiple MySQL storage engines into a single job without complex scripting. If you use the MySQL Enterprise Backup option (MEB-based method), the plug-in supports hot backups of InnoDB tables during backup. If you use the MySQL Standard/Community option (mysqldump-based method), the plug-in supports warm backups of all tables while keeping data online with read-only access. Additionally, using the MySQL Standard/Community option, Plug‑in for MySQL offers improved point-in-time (PIT) functionality to perform more granular restores — which lets you restore to a precise point and reduce data loss.

Key benefits

Increases confidence and reduces risk while deploying MySQL – Plug‑in for MySQL eliminates the need to create complex backup scripts and is flexible enough to account for a large number of recovery scenarios. Users no longer have to worry about understanding MySQL internals before being able to implement a backup policy that prevents committed transactions from being lost during backup and understanding the proper time to purge the Binary Logs. This knowledge is built into the plug-in.
Speeds up restores to reduce downtime – With Plug‑in for MySQL, you select what needs to be restored, the backup set to restore from, and, if applicable, the time or position point to restore to; and the plug-in automatically performs the restore. Restores are faster due to minimized human interaction, and the potential for syntax errors is eliminated.
Ensure business continuity with automatic integration of backup devices – With offsite backups being an important part of the data protection plan for any mission-critical application, Plug‑in for MySQL takes advantage of NetVault Backup’s fundamental integration with a wide range of backup devices, which includes: Dell NetVault SmartDisk, tape libraries, stand-alone tape devices, virtual tape libraries (VTLs), and shared VTLs. NetVault Backup lets you select which backup device to store the backup on. You can store the backup online in a virtual tape library and duplicate the job to physical tape libraries that are shared by multiple MySQL Instances or other proprietary databases, or used for general backup purposes.
Supports advanced MySQL replication techniques –As detailed in the MySQL Reference Guide, MySQL features support one-way, asynchronous replication, in which one server acts as the master, while one or more other servers act as slaves.
