Percona XtraBackup

Well suited to databases < 10TB. For larger than this, I would go with snapshots.

Cons

Actifio Enterprise

  • Single file restore has always been an issue but hopefully will be added soon.
  • Physical server backup restoring has always been tricky but achievable.
Peter Dawe | TrustRadius Reviewer

Percona XtraBackup

  • The only feature that could use some improvement is partial backup restores. For example, I have a multi-tenant database at the schema level running on a single Percona Server instance. As a tenant grows too large for the share instance or becomes a noisy neighbour we need to move a the tenants schema to its own instance with minimal downtime, meaning that we would run the new instance as a replica with replication filters until failover. In terms of doing a consistent backup, there may be challenges and it is currently possible with XtraBackup, but it would be great if the process was simplified and ensured to be consistent.

Alternatives Considered

Actifio Enterprise

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.
Peter Dawe | TrustRadius Reviewer

Percona XtraBackup

We have evaluated Mysqldump and MySQL Enterprise backup. Mysqldump is not a scalable solution. MEB is a paid and closed source. As we are truly open-source, we were looking for an open-source solution that was reliable and scalable. Xtrbackup has all the required features to fulfill our requirements.
Anil Yadav | TrustRadius Reviewer

Return on Investment

  • We have managed to scale up the size of our environment without the need for extra admin overhead.
  • Over 99% backups complete.
  • Solution is robust and quick to scale to meet demands.
Peter Dawe | TrustRadius Reviewer

Percona XtraBackup

  • Secure, reliable, fast and consistent backups. Open source with zero cost.
  • We satisfy our regulatory requirements.
