Zmanda Recovery Manager is a perl-based utility used to automate backup and recovery of MySQL databases. It is released under the GNU General Public License.

Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL is used by MySQL DBAs to do backup and recovery of live MySQL databases, which can be either local or remote.[1] ZRM uses the most appropriate backup method based on the particular storage engine being used by MySQL, or the particular storage infrastructure being used (e.g., it can use snapshots for instant full backups if LVM, ZFS, NetApp or VxFS are being used).

Product Versions[edit]

Zmanda offers three versions of ZRM for MySQL: the ZRM Enterprise edition, the ZRM Cluster edition and the ZRM Community edition.[2] The Enterprise edition includes a graphical installer, Zmanda Management Console (ZMC), command-line interface and plugin framework. The Community edition is a freely downloadable subset of the Enterprise edition, licensed under the GNU GPLv2. It supports LVM snapshots, but does not include the ZMC or the graphical installer.[3]

ZRM server runs on Windows, Solaris and most Linux distributions, including Red Hat and Ubuntu.[4] When backing up MySQL databases on Solaris, ZRM is able to take benefit of snapshot feature of ZFS [5]
