Mirror MySQL Database to another Server
MySQL mirroring is an operation that creates an identical MySQL mirror table on other server than that where is a table or database origin. Often, the basic requirement is a real time server mirroring without stopping an instance from working. Handy Backup allows automating the MySQL mirroring actions.
Creating MySQL Mirror Database with Handy Backup: Advantages
Handy Backup works with MySQL server without a need to stop an instance. This allows "hot" (unstopped) transferring of a MySQL mirror database to another server. If you need more consistent MySQL mirroring, you can also stop a server and make "cold" copies of MySQL mirror table content.
Protected MySQL Mirroring
Automatic creation of a MySQL mirror database uses a temporary vault for "dump" files, where Handy Backup stores data content during real time server mirroring. To protect such stored content, you can use internal or external encryption, dedicated vaults like S3 cloud solutions or SFTP/FTPS, etc.
Remote Control for MySQL Mirror Table
Even single-server editions of Handy Backup, along with network editions, have a capability to provide online backup and recovery to create remote server mirroring solutions. You can connect with a MySQL server either by server name or by IP, to move MySQL database mirror to another server
