Percona XtraBackup for MySQL Databases enables MySQL backups without blocking user queries. Percona XtraBackup is ideal for companies with large data sets and mission-critical applications that cannot tolerate long periods of downtime. Offered free as an open source solution, Percona XtraBackup drives down backup costs while providing unique features for MySQL backups.
The following features and improvements introduced in Percona XtraBackup 8.0.30-23 are available only in tech preview:
Percona XtraBackup adds support for
Zstandard (ZSTD)compression algorithm.
ZSTDis a fast lossless compression algorithm, targeting real-time compression scenarios at zlib-level and better compression ratios.
Percona XtraBackup implements the
Smart memory estimationfeature to compute the memory required to
--preparea backup. Percona XtraBackup has extended the crash recovery logic to extract the formula used to allocate memory. Now, in the backup phase, while copying redo log entries, Percona XtraBackup computes the required memory for
--prepare. Percona XtraBackup also takes into consideration the number of InnoDB pages to be fetched from the disk. Percona XtraBackup checks the server’s available free memory and uses that memory up to the limit specified in the
--use-free-memory-pctoption to run
