Page Compression in production and backup strategies


Hi folks,

Does anyone here use page compression (
https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb/compression/ ) in production? (Or know
folks who do?)

What prompted my question was seeing that XtraBackup is not supported
when using page compression. Given the popularity of the XtraBackup, I'm
left wondering if there's some other backup strategy people use
(especially since it's also used to sync and provision slaves), or if
page compression is simply not used by folks who have master/slave
setups, or perhaps don't require backups?

Searching has not been helpful in my finding the answer, other than a
pull request ( https://github.com/percona/percona-xtrabackup/pull/200 )
by Jan Lindstrom from last year.

Hoping you can help,

best regards,
