MySQL has no single unbreakable backup solution. There are several choices from included or optional open source dump utilities, and commercial offerings from Oracle and third parties.

The choice of the storage engine, and underlying way of storing and retrieving data is a foreign concept for the Oracle DBA. These have different locking strategies and automatic crash recovery concerns.
