In today’s blog, I will discuss Automated Recovery in RecoverX, a powerful tool providing database administrators a sense of security their enterprise data is constantly protected through continuous automated backups.

Automated Recovery is designed to backup data at any point-in-time as user’s have the flexibility of how frequently to perform backups and how long to retain the backed-up data. Through semantic de-duplication, updated backup versions only retain changes made to the original database, reducing redundant data and application downtime while delivering a more efficient backup storage. The result is scores of different backup versions that save automatically, have the agility to scale, and dramatically reduced storage cost and complexity. The benefits of Automated Recovery include it gives users a sense of security their enterprise data is always safeguarded, provides management/monitoring of backed up data, and elimination of risk from data loss. If databases are compromised, there is no period of unavailability as the single-click, repair-free operational recovery results in no lost data.

 

Easy To Setup

 

Login to RecoverX, go to Configuration -> Policies, and select the ‘+’ sign (‘ADD NEW POLICY’ will appear).

 

This will bring up the following ‘ADD POLICY’ interface

 

Complete the information under Add Policy, select a backup time interval, and press Add Policy. You’ve now created a policy and your data will begin backing up automatically.


Backup Versions

To view the backed up verions, go to the Time Travel (1) tab and select the database (2) you are backing up. You will notice different backup versions.

 

‘TIMESTAMP’ (3) is all the backed up versions of the database that RecoverX has stored and ‘VERSION SIZE’ is the size of the database cluster. The ‘DELTA SIZE’ (4) is the change of storage size of the updated versions. The last version is the original database (5).

 

To recover a backup, select the checkbox next to the desired timestamp, press ‘RECOVER’ (6) and select where to recover the backup data. Complete the information and press ‘RESTORE’ (7).

 

You can monitor the recovery process under the ‘Monitoring’ or ‘Dashboard’ tab. You might need to refresh the page a few times to notice the completed data recovery.
