Backup issues and production data recovery needs are quickly handled by expert technicians with deep knowledge of MySQL backup technology.
The Percona Backup Service is available for companies using any variant of single-node or clustered MySQL -- on premise or in the cloud -- and provides full visibility into the status of all backups through a convenient customer portal.

"Successful MySQL server backup and recovery requires the right tools and the ability to repeatedly follow a set of complex processes that must always be done right in order to avoid putting your applications at risk in case of data loss. Offered as a managed backup-as-a-service solution, the Percona Backup Service is a simpler, more flexible and more cost-effective alternative to managing MySQL backups in-house. It is a convenient alternative for organizations running mission critical web and mobile applications that lack the internal personnel or processes to guarantee the availability of their backup data in case of a disaster recovery scenario."
