Backup and restore is one of the most important aspects of database administration. If a database crashed and there was no way to recover it, any resulting data loss might lead to devastating results to a business. As the DBA operating a MySQL or Galera cluster in production, you need to ensure your backups are scheduled, executed and regularly tested.

In this webinar, we discussed the multiple ways to take backups, which method best fits specific needs and how to implement point in time recovery.
