MySQL Enterprise Backup 3.11.0 has been released!!

Guest Author

MySQL Enterprise Backup team is glad to announce the new release of MySQL Enterprise Backup (MEB) 3.11.0.


MEB 3.11.0 focuses on enhancing backup/recovery performance and adding new features that would help database administrators.

This release addresses some of the challenges customers face today while taking backups of very large databases(in terrabytes). This release also provides more complete backup with all the necessary logs required to clone a server. We have also added online restore of tables in 3.11.0 to help DBAs fix corrupted tables in the server from existing backups.

MEB 3.11.0 also brings in cloud support for backup and restore. To meet the growing trend of cloud storage, we released this feature in July '14 as part of  MEB 3.10.2 release.

Please refer to this blog on Cloud Storage
