I'm speaking at the MySQL Conference And Expo 2012!

Percona Live MySQL User's Conference, San Francisco, April 10-12th, 2012Hello Everyone,

I'm very pleased to announce that my submission to talk at the Mysql Conference And Expo 2012 has been accepted! I'll be giving a talk entitled "Introducing XtraBackup Manager", which, as the title suggests, will serve as an introduction to XtraBackup Manager.

I'll be covering what it is, how it works and its features as well as reserving some time for Q+A.

If you are interested in learning more about this tool and plan to attend the conference, this will be a great way to get started!

I hope to see some of you there in April!

XtraBackup Manager Pre-Release v0.8 - Try it out today!

Aloha Everybody!

I'm happy to announce XtraBackup Manager Pre-Release v0.8!

Now that XtraBackup 1.6.4 is released and I have completed some of my final show-stopper bug fixes, I feel that XtraBackup Manager is now in a state ready for more general consumption.

I have yet to package up tarballs, but the Quick Start Guide in the Project Wiki contains all the steps you should need to get up and running from the svn trunk.

There is also some great detailed documentation, including diagrams of all of the different Backup Strategies here.

So please, check out the Project and take it for a spin -- if you have problems or questions, join the discussion on the XtraBackup Manager Google Group!

Thanks and Happy 2012!!

Note: Release notes for XtraBackup v0.8 can be found here.
