World Backup Day - The MySQL perspective
Today is World Backup Day, reminding us of the importance of backups. Here at Pythian we LOVE YOUR DATA and as database consultants we are therefore very much focussed on making sure that our client’s data is always secure and recoverable in case of a disaster. Backups are a crucial factor in that line of work. My colleague Jared Still has written a quite extensive blog post with regard to Oracle Databases and backups. I will guide you through the main principles of MySQL backups.
