Connecting MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) and Media Management System (MMS) through System Backup to Tape (SBT) interface

Database backups are often critical to business and are an important part of an overall disaster recovery strategy. Careful planning for backups includes choosing the appropriate backup types for your needs, scheduling the backups, managing backup media, encryption, and managing the lifecycle of each backup. Frequently the Oracle database, MySQL, and other databases are in use adding additional complexity and the desire to use a single tool to assure consistency of backup policy. Coordinating and executing an overall backup strategy is sometimes best met with the help of Media Management software.

In this white paper we describe how to use MySQL Enterprise Backup with Media Management software through System Backup to Tape interface.
