Data Retrieval with Percona Data Recovery Toolkit for InnoDB

25 April 1:50pm - 2:40pm @ Ballroom D

Three things are certain: death, taxes, and lost data.
Fortunately it's often possible to salvage the data after many kinds of accidents.
The session explains how data is organized in InnoDB and what actually happens in possible data-loss scenarios.
The agenda is:

  • InnoDB files and formats
  • Data recovery toolkit: new and old features
  • Data-loss scenarios: first-aid actions and recovery strategy
