The latest version of Percona XtraBackup, version 2.1, was released in May 2013. It offers improved performance, enterprise-grade security, and lower resource usage than even commercially available MySQL options. When used with Percona Server, additional features are enabled which can provide even more dramatic performance improvements. In this webinar we will discuss the new features of Percona XtraBackup 2.1 including:

- “Real” incremental backups, also known as changed page tracking, when Percona XtraBackup is used with Percona Server
- “Compact” backups for instances of secondary indexes
- REDO log based backups and restore for Percona Server
- Built in compression, encryption, streaming and parallel backups

At the end of the webinar, you will understand how Percona XtraBackup 2.1 can increase your MySQL backup efficiency, security and reliability whether you are using Percona Server, Oracle MySQL, or MariaDB.
