  • scheduler manager for controlling the backup jobs and displaying something to customers

    I am using xtrabackup/innobackupex as the first stage of an offsite backup process, which then moves the archive into offsite cloud storage.

    Basically following steps that involve a series of discrete jobs, each long running, and often requiring to display the information to some semi-technical end client.

    It would be handy to have some central job scheduling tool that wraps up cron, and a reporting function and dumps this onto a web page.

    Previously I was using tools like bacula and HP Dataprotector which handled the scheduling and reporting functions, and really the mysql backup was included almost amusingly as a one-liner command pre-backup hook.

    However now my customers have got rid of their tape libraries, I am looking for something more orientated towards generalized cloud/REST/rsync types batch.


    any suggestions?



    (ps I know there are 1000s of softwares that do this, and much more, and cron and nagios would probably get me 60% of the way there, but I am interested at any suggestions that specifically include xtrabackup and cloud storage.)

    I'd look at http://code.google.com/p/xtrabackup-manager/ and if it doesn't do what you need now, I'd discuss with Lachlan (the creator) and see if you can help shape its future / contribute to it.
