Zmanda Introduces Visual Log Analyzer for MySQL with Selective Recovery
Zmanda Recovery Manager 3.1 is Announced; Company to Demo Backup of MySQL to the Sun Cloud at This Week’s MySQL Conference and Expo
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zmanda™, the leader in open source backup and recovery software, today announced an upgrade to its Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL backup and recovery solution. Among the new ZRM 3.1 features is a visual log analyzer, which allows database administrators (DBAs) to identify operator errors, catch malicious database changes, and easily revert errors or malicious events by restoring information from previous backups.
“As MySQL databases power increasingly complex applications, the recovery of these applications after a mishap becomes complex as well”
Zmanda also announced that it will demonstrate backup of MySQL to the upcoming storage cloud offering from Sun Microsystems at this week’s MySQL Conference and Expo. Zmanda anticipates releasing its backup of MySQL to the Sun Cloud Storage offering this summer, concurrent with the general availability of the Sun Cloud. This offering will allow DBAs to create disaster recovery archives of their MySQL databases on a flexible and open public cloud.
ZRM 3.1 is the first solution to visually show database events in an intuitive manner, and gives complete control of the recovery to the DBA. The built-in visual log analyzer is optimized to scale to millions of database events, which can be quickly searched. The DBA is given powerful options to include or exclude selected events while performing a point-in-time recovery.
“As MySQL databases power increasingly complex applications, the recovery of these applications after a mishap becomes complex as well,” said Paddy Sreenivasan, vice president of engineering, Zmanda. “For example, during a recovery process a DBA may want to exclude specific events, such as erroneous transactions. With multiple users and applications accessing a MySQL database, many of these events may be spread apart, and a DBA may want to undo transactions by a particular user or of a particular type. The new visual log analyzer will enable them to do this easily.”
Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) is a solution used to automate backup and recovery of MySQL databases. ZRM includes unique, enterprise-grade features such as MySQL storage engine and snapshot intelligence, replication support, integration of backup operations with MySQL binary logs, and the Zmanda Management Console — a powerful Web-based graphical user interface that lets DBAs control backup and recovery across all MySQL servers from any browser enabled device.
“Zmanda’s continued support and innovation is a great example of how community and partner involvement has helped propel the widespread adoption of MySQL,” said Nicolas Pujol, head of MySQL Alliances and Channels, Sun Microsystems. “Now MySQL DBAs, especially those who are managing large and high-transaction environments, can benefit from the Visual log analyzer and selective recovery features of the new Zmanda Recovery Manager 3.1.”
The MySQL Conference and Expo will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California from April 20-23, 2009. The conference is the largest gathering of MySQL developers, users and DBAs in the world. Zmanda representatives will demonstrate ZRM 3.1 in booth number 313. In addition, Mr. Kant will be delivering a presentation entitled, “Cloud Backup for MySQL,” on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 4:25 p.m. local time in Ballroom G, and participating in a panel discussion entitled, “The Great Open Cloud Shootout,” on Wednesday, April 22, 2009 at 8:50 a.m. local time in Ballroom E.
