Mariabackup - too rarely used

Mariabackup is another backup tool for MariaDB. But it is still not used very frequently. In this presentation we will have a short look how this backup works and what we can do with it.

Mariabackup full backup is a fast and reliable backup/restore method for a whole instance. With the partial restore we can also restore one table or several tables together (aka schema). Point-in-Time-Recovery is also possible with Mariabackup (do not confuse this with incremental backup). But it becomes more tricky for one schema or table only. And finally this can also be done on a MariaDB Galera Cluster.
