Best for organizations with multiple servers and are super-careful about their data. The Service suits both small and Large scale organizations as there is different plans available and they cater the needs in a specific way, as required. SFS Turbo Server backups are not easy but the CBR Does it with ease.

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

Cons
Huawei Technologies
  • Support from Huawei Cloud Backup and Recovery (CBR) team is not good. They take so much time in addressing the query and to solve the problem which we have encountered due to some technical error or glitches.
  • The synchronization process is very slow and we need a good internet connection as files get paused and we need to start the action manually which become difficult task sometime.
  • The price for storage is very expensive when we need some extra storage as compared to other cloud service providers.

  • 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.

Cloud Backup and Recovery by Huawei is more cost effective when I compare it with its Amazon Counterpart, it has more features and the recovery time is way above what the AWS Backup offers. The policies available for data backup is also more flexible with Huawei, which makes making custom policies easier

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.
