Percona, the company that makes MySQL faster and more reliable, today announced Percona XtraBackup 2.1, the latest release of the company's open source hot backup solution for MySQL and Percona Server. The new version offers improved performance, enterprise-grade security, and lower resource usage.


Percona XtraBackup enables backups without blocking user queries, making it 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, XtraBackup drives down backup costs while providing unique features for MySQL backup.

Technical Highlights

XtraBackup 2.1 includes the following enhancements:
* Faster incremental backups by utilizing the new "changed page bitmaps" feature in Percona Server.
* Enhanced security through multi-threaded backup encryption. Compression and encryption can also be combined, each using multiple CPU cores. Percona XtraBackup 2.1 supports industry standard AES encryption and uses libgcrypt, an existing software library.
* Reduced disk space usage through a "compact backups" feature that reduces the size of backups significantly by omitting secondary index pages from backups.
