Percona has launched the Percona Backup Service, a managed service that ensures properly configured MySQL server backups run successfully as scheduled on customer provided backup storage -- whether on premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment. Backup issues and production data recovery needs are quickly handled by expert technicians with deep knowledge of MySQL backup technology.
The Percona Backup Service is available for companies using any variant of single-node or clustered MySQL -- on premise or in the cloud -- and provides full visibility into the status of all backups through a convenient customer portal. Developed by MySQL experts with decades of MySQL operational experience, the service is based on widely adopted open source software solutions, some of which Percona created including Percona XtraBackup. Monitoring software ensures backups run as expected, and any issues are immediately reported to Percona technical experts who are on duty 24x7x365 to resolve problems before the availability of backups is impacted.

The Percona Backup Service offers:
* Anytime access to backup datasets via a customer portal, including instructions on how to restore the MySQL backups for non-production purposes
* Efficient data recovery for production issues with full, partial, and point-in-time recovery options that are based on Percona's proprietary technology, which creates fine-grained backup points that enable rapid recovery of individual tables or full data images to a specified point in time
* A high level of security with 256 bit encryption and backups stored only on the customer's secure servers
* Regulatory compliance with backups available for on-demand recovery to comply with HIPAA, SOX, and PCI regulations
* Lower cost than managing MySQL backups in-house with 24x7x365 monitoring and issue resolution combined with a proprietary backup approach that significantly reduces the size of the backup data set, requiring much less storage space than conventional methods
* Ability to accommodate any combination of MySQL server and backup server locations -- on premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment
* Flexible configuration options that enable the service to meet a wide range of data availability and budget requirements
