Chapter 7 Using MySQL Enterprise Backup with Replication

Backup and restore operations are especially important in systems that use MySQL replication to synchronize data across a master server and a set of slave servers. In a replication configuration, MySQL Enterprise Backup helps you manage images for the entire system, set up new slave servers, or restore a master server in an efficient way that avoids unnecessary work for the slave servers. On the other hand, having multiple slave servers to choose from gives you more flexibility about where to perform backups. When the binary log is enabled, you have more flexibility about restoring the database to a specific point in time, even a time that is later than that of the last backup.
