3.3.5.2 Backing Up to Tape

Tape drives are affordable, high-capacity storage devices for backup data. The MySQL Enterprise Backup product can interface with media management software (MMS) such as Oracle Secure Backup (OSB) to drive MySQL backup and restore jobs. The media management software must support Version 2 or higher of the System Backup to Tape (SBT) interface.

For information about doing tape backups in combination with MMS products such as Oracle Secure Backup, see Chapter 6, Using MySQL Enterprise Backup with Media Management Software (MMS) Products.
