Server Backup - If It Ain't Easy, It's Too Hard

Posted by R1Soft on May 21, 2013 12:00:00 PM

Recently we released version 5.2 of our Server Backup product. For a point release, it’s chocked full of new features and improvements. There was one overriding theme for this release, however, that inspired us in just about everything we added: Ease of use for the customer.

In speaking with literally hundreds of our customers we came to recognize that whether they are backing up to their own servers, to off-premises backup, or using one of our partners for backup-as-a-service, they take for granted that the storage capacity and ability to copy data from one location to another is pretty much a given in today’s backup products. How fast they can perform a restore is a great way to differentiate one backup product from the next. But ease of use was their single biggest concern.

CDP Quick Tip #2 – MySQL Add-on: Why MySQL Backups are NOT Safe Without It

Posted by R1Soft on Feb 5, 2010 11:00:00 AM

Here’s a quick tip from the Head GEEK to help you ensure safe, fast online backup and zero business interruption for your MySQL database servers.

When it comes to backups databases require special handling, and MySQL is no exception. There are a variety of MySQL backup methods available and they all work differently.  The R1Soft CDP for MySQL Add-on integrates Continuous Data Protection® with an online hot backup (snapshot) of MySQL databases to provide fast, efficient and safe MySQL backups.  Both MyISAM and InnoDB storage engines require that tables be locked and flushed before a backup operation can take place. The R1Soft MySQL Add-on ensures that this happens and  carefully coordinates it with the point-in-time file system snapshot.
