Increasing number of large MySQL applications, e.g. social networking back-ends, use a distributed MySQL architecture. MySQL data is distributed logically or heuristically on multiple real or virtual servers. Backing up such large and dynamic environments presents its own complexities. Application managers desire a point-in-time restore which is coordinated across multiple servers. In this presentation, we will discuss multiple techniques to solve this problem. We will also provide trade-offs based on on-the-ground experiences, e.g. coordinated backups vs. coordinated restores.
