Actifio Enterprise

Actifio Enterprise is a great tool to use for data protection and disaster recovery at the enterprise level. It can create one master copy of your data and then replicate that data out via snapshots to local or cloud-based targets. I don't think this product would be a good fit to small to medium sized companies because it is on the expensive side.

Percona XtraBackup

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

Pros

Percona XtraBackup

  • Non-blocking backup : Backup process will not put any lock on the database.
  • Fast recovery : As it's a file level backup so it's quite fast in both backup and recovery.
  • Consistent backup : Xtrabackup always ensures consistent backup.
  • Easy to configure and Use.
  • Integration with clouds

Cons

Actifio Enterprise

  • Price could be lower
  • Learning curve is a bit steep
  • Admin Console could be improved
Mark McCully | 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.

Return on Investment

  • Actifio has allowed us to save a lot of disk space by using clones\snapshots to replicate data from production to lower environments.
