Zmanda Teams With NetApp

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Zmanda(TM), the open source leader in backup and recovery software, today announced that it is delivering a new level of data protection for MySQL databases with the integration of NetApp(R) Snapshot(TM) technology with the Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL. Together, NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) and ZRM enable MySQL customers to implement continuous data protection for mission-critical MySQL databases. Zmanda also announced that it has joined the NetApp Advantage Developer Program and that ZRM for MySQL has been certified for use with NetApp storage systems.

"We are delighted that the backup and recovery experts at Zmanda have created an efficient and powerful way to deliver continuous data protection for MySQL," said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing at NetApp. "By integrating ZRM for MySQL with NetApp Snapshot and storage management technology, Zmanda has given MySQL users a powerful data protection solution that addresses even the most demanding MySQL applications."

With NetApp Snapshot, database administrators can create point-in-time copies of file systems, which can be used to protect data-from a single file to a complete disaster recovery solution. Users can protect data with no performance impact and minimal consumption of storage space.

"NetApp is an industry leader in storage management, and MySQL is one of the most popular and pervasive databases," said Chander Kant, Zmanda CEO. "The integration of ZRM for MySQL with NetApp Snapshot technology creates a new synergy between NetApp and MySQL, making it even easier for MySQL DBAs to perform instantaneous, automated, and efficient backup and recovery of data stored on NetApp storage systems."
