Every company that succeeds for enough time experiences some database incidents.
Databases get damaged for some reason, and must be recovered by a setup.
But even backups sometimes fail. In 2017, GitLab discovered during an incident that none of its three backup strategies was working. Recently Percona Xtrabackup 8 suddenly became incompatible with MySQL 8 because of a change introduced by Oracle.
Please, build a reliable backup infrastructure that allows your data
– and therefore your company –
to survive incidents.
Here’s what I can do for you:
- Discuss the backup strategies that best suite your company.
- Setup of one or more backup strategies.
- Review of existing backup strategies.
- Backup automation.
- Automated backup tests.
