MySQL Database Archiving

Sun's MySQL technology is used by some of the world's largest and fastest-growing organizations to save time and money powering their high-volume Web sites, business-critical systems and commercial software. Enterprise data management is a proven strategy to manage growth in application and custom databases by reallocating data out of production systems into secondary, lower cost storage systems while maintaining seamless data access through the native application or BI layer.

Organizations can mitigate the impact of data growth by running batch reports during downtime, purchasing faster hardware or utilizing the purge functionality. None of these techniques fully address the reality of database growth and the need for long term data retention. To maintain performance of MySQL based applications while ensuring compliance, organizations must:

  • Actively manage transactional data stores to optimize application performance.
  • Understand the impact of growing application databases to productivity and resource costs.
  • Develop classification strategies for primary and secondary data sets.
  • Implementing an enterprise database management strategy to optimize infrastructure investments based on data classes.


With the Solix Enterprise Data Archiving solution for MySQL, organizations can create and deploy effective and consistent policies for managing, securing and storing data from a single console. The result is improved application performance and availability through smaller production database sizes, shorter backup and recovery times, reduced labor costs to maintain the production system and lower storage costs. Solix EDMS for MySQL offers organizations the ability to.

  • Classify data based on its business value and regulatory impact for tiered storage and information security.
  • Maintain seamless data access to archive data through native application interface.
  • Maintain referential integrity to insure transactional integrity in the archive.
  • Leverage a metadata driven approach for defining data management policies, reducing overhead costs associated with data management solutions.
  • Complete integrated de-archive, space re-claimer and patch synchronization utilities to assist in data management processes.
