Why your backup strategy is wrong?

A brief overview of MySQL backup concepts

"If you have a hammer, all you see is nails." also known as the Law of the Instrument describes the cognitive bias that involves over-reliance on a familiar tool. To protect MySQL data, a DBA must have a toolbox full of the proper utensils. To know only one approach is not enough.

In this talk, we will cover the following topics: - Why your backup strategy is probably wrong? - The Schröendinger Backup - Backups: Cold, hot... and warm? - The right answer is not always the logical one. - Replication is not the solution. - Point-in-time recovery. - Don't try this at prod: Test your backups.
