Percona XtraBackup - Documentation

Percona XtraBackup is an open-source hot backup utility for MySQL - based servers that doesn’t lock your database during the backup.

It can back up data from InnoDB, XtraDB, and MyISAM tables on MySQL 5.1 [1], 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7 servers, as well as Percona Server for MySQL with XtraDB.

For a high-level overview of many of its advanced features, including a feature comparison, please see About Percona XtraBackup.

Whether it is a 24x7 highly loaded server or a low-transaction-volume environment, Percona XtraBackup is designed to make backups a seamless procedure without disrupting the performance of the server in a production environment. Commercial support contracts are available.

Important

Percona XtraBackup 2.4 does not support making backups of databases created in MySQL 8.0, Percona Server for MySQL 8.0 or Percona XtraDB Cluster 8.0.
