· [MySQL] New features:
- A specified node can be configured for backup, reducing the impact on production.
- In MySQL cluster failover scenario, whether the backup job switches from incremental backup, differential backup or log backup to full backup can be specified via configuring the file, to minimize the impact on business.
- Lock Tables timeout can be configured. If the lock time exceeds the configured time, the backup will fail to give priority to the user's production business.
- Query timeout can be configured. When a long-running query exists and the query time exceeds the configured time, the backup will fail to give priority to the user's production business.
- When continuous log backup is started manually, data and logs can be backed up at the same time. It can meet the requirements of performing log backup, or performing log backup and data backup simultaneously at any time.
- In the data backup scenario, the redo caching method can be converted into pipeline method without occupying the user's local production space.
- In the data recovery scenario, the default binglog log path can be changed to the installation directory to prevent the system space from being too full.
- MySQL log paths can be customized, and related logs can be downloaded from the console.
· [openGauss] New features:
- Whether the backup job switches to full backup can be specified via configuring the file, to minimize the impact on user's business.
- In the data backup scenario, the continuity of log backup can be detected and the backup serial number can be obtained, to facilitate users to troubleshoot issues.
· [KingBase] New Features:
- KingBase databases started in PostgreSQL mode can be backed up and restored.
- KingBase databases started in MySQL mode can be backed up and restored.
- KingBase databases started by port number can be backed up and restored.
· [PostgreSQL] New features:
- PostgreSQL databases started in postmaster mode can be backed up and restored.
- PostgreSQL databases started by the command line (for example, using the commands --config -c) can be backed up and restored.
- PostgreSQL databases in scenarios where the database archiving mode is always can be backed up and recovery.
- The continuity of archive logs can be detected in the data backup scenario. If the archive log is continuous, the incremental backup will not be converted into a full backup, which can save storage space for users.
· [Informix] New features:
- Log backup can be started directly in continuous backup. It can reduce the impact on production business, lower the backup window, and improve RPO in case of job exception.
· [Oracle RAC] New features:
- Whether to receive alarms in the scenario that one node succeeds and another node fails can be configured.
- In the backup and recovery scenario, whether to ignore Oracle ORA errors can be configured, and warnings can be set for the ignored errors. Users can flexibly configure whether to accept or ignore errors to improve ease of use.
· [EOSS] New features:
- O&M cleanup capability is added. Residual bucket data can be cleaned up manually to save data storage space.
- Anomaly sensing capability is provided for the storage management cluster. When an exception occurs in the storage management cluster, the task fails to start by reporting an error, so that the situation that the backup job runs successfully but the data cannot be restored normally can be avoided.
· [D2T/D2D2T] New features:
- Index tapes can be copied and exported, and the copied index tapes and data tapes can be imported into a new environment. The tape data can be reconstructed and restored remotely when a disaster occurs.
· [Remote Replication] New features:
- Only the full backup point in time on a certain day of each month/week can be synchronized.
- Only "full backup + incremental backup" points in time can be synchronized, which can filter differential points in time and log archive points in time.
· [Data Archive] New features:
- The history list can be exported.
· [D2D2T] New features:
- Data archived to tape can be stored and encrypted, and supported encryption algorithm include AES256 and SM4.
Copy Data Management
· [VMware] New features:
- Backup auto retry is supported if the virtual machine backup fails.
- Disks can be backed up and restored concurrently, so that the backup performance of virtual machines can be improved.
· [SLA] New features:
- The timeout for backup jobs can be set, so as to avoid backup running for a long time beyond the backup window period and affect the normal operation of the production system.
· Add Copy Data Management feature in [Dameng]:
- Full backup, incremental forever backup, and transactional log backup are supported.
- DMDSC cluster and Dameng standalone are supported.
- Archive logs in the Dameng database can be deleted periodically.
- Multi-channel backup is supported, so that backup performance is improved.

- Remote replication is supported.
- Log alarm is supported.
· [Oracle RAC] New features:
- Whether to receive alarms in the case that one node succeeds and another node fails can be configured.
- In the backup and recovery scenario, whether to ignore Oracle ORA errors can be configured, and warnings can be set for the ignored errors. Users can flexibly configure whether to accept or ignore errors to improve ease of use.
· [MySQL] New features:
- Lock Tables timeout can be configured. If the lock time exceeds the configured time, the backup will fail to give priority to the user's production business.
- Query timeout can be configured. When a long-running query exists and the query time exceeds the configured time, the backup will fail to give priority to the user's production business.
Public
· [Client] New features:
- Whether the host machine is a KVM virtual machine can be automatically recognized.
- The client machine code can be reset automatically to avoid the issues of connection conflicts of the original client and backup interruption of the original production environment caused by virtual machine cloning, and virtual machine recovery and reconstruction.
· [Security Policy] New features:
- User account can be disabled. Users who have not logged in for more than X days will be automatically disabled.
· [Client Installation] New features:
- For the scenario that the client is directly bound to tenants/operators, the expiration time of the password for accessing the client can be changed via modifying the configuration file, which solves the disadvantage of frequently using new passwords to install clients.
· [Client Log] New features:
- Modifying the output path of the client logs during the client is being deployed or after the deployment.
- Client logs can be dumped and compressed. You can configure dump cycle and file size limit.
- Client log space can be detected automatically. When the client log space is less than 100M, the backup or recovery job will fail immediately and a system alarm will be automatically pushed.
This capability can prevent excessive client logs from affecting system operation.
· [Public] New features:
- For databases without logging enabled, logs can be printed automatically when you perform backup and recovery.

(The applications supported: MySQL, Oracle, Informix, Sybase, Dameng, DB2)
· [Backup and Recovery]
- The Deduplication feature is optimized as follows:
Ø The fingerprint loading logic for deduplication jobs in the scenario of concurrent backups is optimized. Concurrent loading of the fingerprint library is supported, so that the problem of long initialization queuing time in the scenario of concurrent deduplication jobs can be solved. In the scenario without disk bottlenecks, the fingerprint loading performance of concurrent multi-job scenarios is improved by about N~xN (N>2, which is the concurrency of the deduplication jobs; x is the number of deduplication nodes).
- The metadata collation mechanism of EOSS is optimized as follows:
Ø The accumulation problem of KV for metadata is optimized, the smoothness and performance of LevelDB sorting are improved, and the problem of long metadata sorting time because of large volume of KV is solved. After optimization, the sorting performance is improved by 8 times.
Ø The EOSS metadata lock mechanism is optimized: the backup throughput of a single metadata database under the scenario of "Cleanup + Sorting + Backup" is improved. The throughput performance of a single metadata database is increased by 2 times.
