MySQL Backup and Restore at Facebook scale

Wednesday 5:10 PM - 5:35 PM

@ Hill Country C


25 minutes conference



Backups are our last line of defense in the event of a data loss, be it a hardware failure, malicious attack or a test script run in production. At Facebook, not only do we backup every database, we also continuously restore our backups to have full confidence in our recovery capabilities. This talk will provide a high-level overview of our automation and tooling around MySQL backups and restores.
