So I’m back from the Percona dev team’s recent meeting. While there, we spent a fair bit of time discussing Xtrabackup development. One of our challenges is that as we add richer features to the tool, we need equivalent testing capabilities. However, it seems a constant in the MySQL world that available QA tools often […]
Percona is glad to announce the release of Percona XtraBackup 1.6.3 on 22 September, 2011 (Downloads are available here and from the Percona Software Repositories).

innobackupex --stream=tar | ssh remotebox "tar xfi -"

This time I will be showing you how to setup a three-node Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) 5.6 on the Docker open-source engine. Just […]
Percona Server 5.6.11-60.3 introduces a new “log archiving” feature. Percona XtraBackup 2.1.5 supports “apply archived logs.” What does it mean and how it can be used? Percona products propose three kinds of incremental backups. The first is full scan of data files and comparison the data with backup data to find some delta. This approach […]
