Extending Xtrabackup - A Point-In-Time System

Average: 9 (5 votes)

Everyone knows that Xtrabackup is a great product and provides point-in-time backups for MySQL. Most companies have some sort of report, whether it be an email or another mechanism, to confirm that backups ran as they should on their system and Ning.com is no different. That said, more was needed out of point-in-time backups so I have created a point-in-time backup system that contains multiple improvements for tracking, transparency and monitoring. During this talk I will present the moving parts of the Ning.com backup system, where we are today and where we would like to take it.

In this presentation I will cover the following:

- Xtabackup features used at Ning.com and why
- Backup idiosyncrasies we have and other may as well
- Monitoring features
- Historical tracking of backups
- Features of the Xtrabackup wrapper script designed for Ning.com
- Future development of the Ning backup system

MySQL Architect, Ning.com

I've been a long time MySQL community member and user. Through my career I have designed, implemented and maintained small to large scale MySQL installations while training and mentoring teams of DBAs. This includes building architecture from the ground up and improving on those that are currently in place while emphasizing scalability, performance and ease of use.
