@ Goldsmith 3

MySQL / MariaDB

50 minutes conference


Business / Case Studies, Operations

Databases play a key part of business infrastructure. To ensure you are prepared in case of a disaster, it is crucial to make sure your database and data are always available.

In this talk, DBA's and sysadmins will get exposed to the different types of backups.
- When a physical vs. logical backup is more appropriate
- How to make complete, partial and incremental backups and how to restore a single table from a physical backup
- Where backups should be stored
- How important it is to test the restoration of a backup
- How to include point-in-time-recovery on backup routines
- How to encrypt backups and why
- Which tools and techniques can be used to ensure the actual backup has consistent data

.IE (IEDR - Ireland's CCTLD) will share how they implement the topics above on their backup life-cycle.
By the end of this talk, the audience will have a clear picture of the key points of an actual backup.
