The new MySQL Backup system has been improved to compliment the replication system. There are several key scenarios where backup can improve replication. These include failover, slave propagation, protection for restore, and routine use of backup with replication.
The scenarios discussed will include common replication tasks where backup can be used including the following.
The session will also examine a number of use cases discussing how backup and replication interact including the following.
Dr. Charles A. Bell conducts research in emerging technologies and agile development techniques. He works for Sun Microsystems as a senior software engineer on the backup and replication team. He is currently one of the principle developers of the backup system. His contributions to the backup system include the new logging mechanism, the default drivers, and numerous minor enhancements. Working exclusively on the Windows platform, he is also the resident Windows expert for the team.
Dr. Lars Thalmann is the technical lead of replication and backup technology at MySQL. He has designed many of the features, and is leading the development of replication, online backup, character sets and XML. Dr. Thalmann has worked with clustering technology for many years and is one of the developers of NDB Cluster, the storage engine used in MySQL Cluster.
Mats Kindahl is a lead software engineer of the MySQL replication team. He is the main architect and implementor of MySQL’s row-based replication, but has also developed the unit testing framework used by MySQL.
