Support for XtraBackup 2.0 in XtraBackup Manager coming soon...

Hi Folks,

Just a quick note to let you know that I am planning to add support to XtraBackup Manager to work with XtraBackup 2.0 series releases fairly soon.

Using the XtraBackup 2.0 series will mean that XtraBackup Manager will no longer need to stage the incremental backups to a location on the remote host before copying them back to the XtraBackup Manager storage.

This can be a remarkable efficiency saving for systems with a lot of page changes between backups.

I will also be trying to address some of the feedback/requests that I have received in the Google Code Issues section.

Please check out the project in Google Code here, if you have not already. Feedback and contributions are welcomed!




  1. These facts are really interesting. Few of them were well known for me but many of them were brand new for me too!
    I will print this one out and show to my friends because they will be definitely interested in that. Thanks!

  2. We are evaluating XtraBackup 2.0 right now and would love to have a backup manager that is compliant. What's the status on this effort?

  3. Yeah, the same (as 'Anonymous August 7') .. This is something that very much interests me ..

    Please, do post about the status, even if just to say it is not ready ..

  4. Looks like that project is dead?
