OurSQL Episode 41: Zmanda [backup series #6]

Previously in the backup series:

Backup Series #1: Backup Glossary
Backup Series #2: Backup Tools You Already Have (mysqlhotcopy and mysqldump)
Backup Series #3: Looking Through the Lenz (snapshots including LVM)
Backup Series #4: Advanced Logical Export Features (advanced mysqldump)
Backup Series #5: Xtrabackup

This week we talk with Chander Kant, CEO of Zmanda, about how Zmanda Recovery Manager makes backup and recovery of MySQL backups very easy, whether you are using storage level snapshots, hot backup tools or even logical backups. Full and incremental backups (and restores!) are made simpler with the community (free) version and with the enterprise (commercial) version.
