Disaster Recovery Planning for MySQL & MariaDB

Forrest Lymburner


We’re happy to announce that our new whitepaper Disaster Recovery Planning for MySQL & MariaDB is now available to download for free!

Database outages are almost inevitable and understanding the timeline of an outage can help us better prepare, diagnose and recover from one. To mitigate the impact of downtime, organizations need an appropriate disaster recovery (DR) plan. However, it makes no business sense to abstract the cost of a DR solution from the design of it, so organizations have to implement the right level of protection at the lowest possible cost.

This white paper provides essential insights into how to build such a plan, discussing the database mechanisms involved as well as how these mechanisms can be fully automated with ClusterControl, a management platform for open source database systems.

Topics included in this whitepaper are…

  • Business Considerations for Disaster Recovery
    • Is 100% Uptime Possible?
    • Analysing Risk
    • Assessing Business Impact
  • Defining Disaster Recovery
    • Recovery Time Objectives
    • Recovery Point Objectives
  • Disaster Recovery Tiers
    • Offsite Data
    • Backups and Hot Sites
