From the current D/B Agent CL:

Added MySQL agent support through Zmanda. Reference note below. 2011-03-21 NetBackup 7.0

MySQL Agent is available from Zmanda <http://www.zmanda.com> For quotes or any other technical or business questions related to this agent, please contact
Zmanda at: symantec@zmanda.com

Seems like still in the same situation from a few years ago:

Did you expand the "+" for more info?

Customers can now integrate MySQL databases into their NetBackup environment by using the Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL - NetBackup Option. This plug-in provided by Zmanda, a Symantec STEP partner, enables NetBackup to provide centralized backup and recovery of multiple MySQL databases/servers across Linux, Solaris and Windows operating systems. Benefits include:

  • Schedule full, differential and incremental backups of MySQL database
  • Recover database easily to a required point in time or to any particular database event
  • Backup compression and encryption
  • Extensive monitoring and reporting
This product is licensed separately through Zmanda.

Hi Zahid,

Our MySQL agent has been around for over a year now.  All I know about it is everything I put in this old blog post:

Backing up the Dolphins!
 https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/backing-dolphins

...so followups are best directed to the Zmanda folks.

Oh, actually, I know one thing that ISN'T in the blog post - they DO support NetBackup 7.5 (which wasn't out when I wrote that announcement).

To answer your original question:

Do we have to buy individually this product ?

Yes.  :)

Zmanda also backs up elephants with their PostgreSQL Agent for NetBackup, but that's another blog entry from another time.  ;-)

Zahid: Your request for trial license for NetBackup MySQL Agent for internal learning purposes is being processed by Zmanda partner team (you may have already heard from them). 

All Symantec NetBackup resellers are authorized to resell the MySQL and Postgres backup agents from Zmanda. As suggested above, best way to contact us for this is through symantec@zmanda.com

http://www.zmanda.com/netbackup-mysql-backup.html

Zmanda provides backup agents for MySQL and PostgreSQL for NetBackup.
