ARKEIA ALLOWS ADMINISTRATIONS TO DEVELOP BACKUP STRATEGIES.
Now incorporated in Arkeia's MySQL plug-in is the ability to run incremental database backup based on the MySQL binary log data. Each incremental backup includes only the log of the operations since the last backup: when the database needs to be restored, Arkeia restores the last total backup of the database information as well as the MySQL binary logs. The system administrator then replays the log up to the desired date of database state.
This incremental backup method is the fastest way to backup an online MySQL server.
In addition to the new plug-in version, Arkeia also added support for MySQL on the HPUX/Itanium 2 platform. This MySQL platform will increase the already extensive list of Arkeia's supported operating systems. Arkeia hot backup plug-in includes numerous Linux distributions on Intel x86, Itanium 2, Sparc, PowerPC and Alpha architectures as well as Windows, AIX, Solaris, HP-UX on PA-RISC, Tru64, Irix, Mac OS X and xBSDs.
"Arkeia will continue to evolve along with the widely-used MySQL database," said Frederic Renard, marketing and alliances director at Arkeia. "Our MySQL plug-in offers the best possible price/performance ratio for protecting vital data without interrupting production."
"MySQL is increasingly used to store critical enterprise data, and protecting this data with solutions such as Arkeia's hot back-up plug-in can be very important," said Bertrand Matthelie, director of Alliances at MySQL AB. "Cost and usability benefits of MySQL are amplified by Arkeia's software, adding to the growing market of high-quality MySQL partner solutions that extend and support MySQL applications."
Arkeia's easy-to-use and intuitive interface allows administrators to develop a backup strategy that protects information without interruption. The Arkeia plug-in performs either incremental, differential or full MySQL backup while data is online and accessible.
The MySQL plug-in is easily installed and configured with databases and table backup selected via the convenient Arkeia GUI navigator. Backup can be defined up to the table level and the plug-in is compatible with all table formats handled by MySQL.
The Arkeia MySQL plug-in is compatible with versions of MySQL starting from 3.21 and including versions 4.x. It is available for download, as a 30-day demo, at www.arkeia.com/download.html and can complement either Arkeia Network Backup or Arkeia Server Backup solutions. Solutions start at less than $500.
