From booth 522, R1Soft offers insight into online database backup and true granular restore for MySQL with its CDP 3.0 for MySQL Add-On, now for MySQL installations on both Windows and Linux

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2011

On site for the 2011 O'Reilly MySQL Conference and Expo, R1Soft, developer of Continuous Data Protection® (CDP) backup and recovery software, has released new details about its CDP 3.0 database protection software for MySQL. Part of R1Soft’s 3.0 family of Continuous Data Protection® products, CDP 3.0 for MySQL Add-On brings online database backup and true granular restore to MySQL installations on both Windows and Linux servers for the first time.

CDP 3.0 for MySQL Add-On stands apart from other database backup software thanks to its unique data replication process. By coordinating a very brief lock and flush with the point-in-time file system snapshot, CDP can successfully backup MySQL databases online, with minimal impact to database load.

“Regular MySQL database backups are absolutely crucial for business continuity" explained David Wartell, vice president of R1Soft, a division of BBS Technologies. "But when backups come at the cost of server and business interruption, the issue becomes muddier. R1Soft feels strongly that MySQL users shouldn't have to choose between uptime and preparedness. To make certain that they won’t, we've developed CDP for MySQL Add-On, which now supports both Linux and Windows MySQL installations.”

Data restores with CDP are also notable. CDP 3.0 for MySQL Add-On offers granular, object-level restore of MySQL tables, views, and even stored procedures for MyISAM and InnoDB/Innobase, providing unparalleled control. Other benefits of CDP for MySQL Add-On include:

    *      Support for MySQL on both Windows and Linux servers
    *     Central administration of all MySQL backups and restores
    *     Reduce load on MySQL databases from backups
    *     Zero transaction loss during backups

Because it is built on R1Soft’s CDP 3.0 technology, CDP for MySQL Add-On also shares the new 3.0 Disk Safe. CDP’s on-disk repository for point-in-time snapshots, the 3.0 Disk Safe is designed to withstand corruption caused by hardware failure and power loss. The Disk Safe also adds great convenience to database backup management: it is completely portable and can be saved to virtually any reliable, disk-based storage.

Exhibiting at booth 522, R1Soft will offer demonstrations of its CDP 3.0 database backup software to MySQL Conference and Expo attendees.

Availability: CDP for MySQL Add-On is included with CDP 3.0 Advanced Edition and available as an addition to CDP 3.0 Enterprise Edition. For more details, visit
