Backup for MariaDB

Acronis has a long history of best-in-class backup and recovery capabilities. This commitment to complete data protection – as a part of Acronis’ broader, comprehensive cyber protection approach – has helped service provider partners ensure that their clients’ data, applications and systems remain safe and secure.

Today, Acronis is proud to announce a new partnership with MariaDB that empowers service providers to extend Acronis’ industry-leading backup and recovery capabilities to MariaDB databases. This new capability, available through the Advanced Backup pack for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, enables service providers to safeguard their clients’ most critical data in the popular MariaDB database without the need for expertise in the technology.

Extending Acronis cyber protection to MariaDB

MariaDB is the fastest-growing database in the world and one of the five most used databases, with availability on all leading cloud platforms and 75% of the Fortune 500 companies currently relying on it. As a result, MariaDB is uniquely positioned to provide a global perspective on the technology trends facing modern businesses.

Additionally, since MariaDB has better performance and was designed to be a drop-in replacement for MySQL, many websites have deployed MariaDB as a backend solution – including sites built with WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced Backup enables service providers to support all of their SMB clients using MariaDB seamlessly through the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud console they’re already familiar with. Configuring backups of MariaDB databases with Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud is performed simply and easily, using the same process service provider partners will be familiar with when protecting data on the more than 20 workload types Acronis protects today.

With Acronis’ new support for MariaDB service providers can offer full or granular recovery of MariaDB databases. When a recovery is needed, service providers can quickly browse and recover data and tables without needing to wait for the entire workload it’s a part of. This granular recovery is supported on the instance, database and table level, offering flexibility for service providers to reduce RTO and return access to their clients’ most critical data with as little downtime as possible.

The importance of Acronis cyber protection for MariaDB

The digital world is growing exponentially in size and complexity, while the cybercriminals looking to exploit it are growing in sophistication. Acronis’ integrated cyber protection approach provides service providers and their clients with an easy, efficient and secure platform to defend against data loss, downtime and cyberthreats – ranging from the most infamous to emerging zero-day threats that other solutions can’t detect.

Despite this, there is no cybersecurity solution that can offer 100% security. That’s why advanced data protection capabilities including backup and recovery remain at the heart of Acronis Cyber Protection Solutions.

When a cyberattack or accidental data loss strikes a business today, having the technology and process in place to rapidly recover and return to business is essential. By extending backup and recovery capabilities to MariaDB, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced Backup ensures peace of mind for service providers – and their clients – using MariaDB, delivering comprehensive data protection to one of the largest and most popular databases on the market. The Acronis MariaDB integration was launched along with MySQL support to augment our expanding list of database cyber protection coverage, including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle DBMS, and SAP HANA.
