Because of the lack of skills, remote operations such as data management and backup are not always reliable. And companies can’t run the risk of a major failure, especially in the event of a breakdown. But solutions exist to centralize database administration interventions.

Why provide remote management of MySQL database?

Remote database administration separates your database server from your web server, or other server. Indeed, this practice may be necessary in several situations such as the authorization of certain applications.

Given the risks associated with data backup, professionals need to review their data management methodology. Otherwise, increasing insecurity may persist – due to the lack of qualified staff at remote sites or the cost of traditional data management techniques.

Fortunately, more sophisticated solutions exist to meet these multiple challenges and set up your MySQL server to be accessible from a remote server.

Points to check in remote data administration

Centralized management according to very specific rules

Effective management of remote data relies on the centralization of rules and the application of these rules across remote networks.

Entrusting remote data management and backup to a single centralized team will help you control costs and be more efficient.

Extended Network Use (WAN) broadband

There are a number of bandwidth considerations, such as the availability of remote site bandwidth.

Effective means must be put in place with tools to optimize the available bandwidth.

In addition, you should check the amount of over-bit generated on the network.

Data integrity and security

Intrusions are even more frequent on remote sites due to lack of control, which is why it is important to encrypt the data during the transfer.

Process automation on remote sites

Process automation provides an effective solution for accessing data while addressing skilled personnel problems at remote locations.

MySQL database replication mode

In business continuity management, continuous replication keeps an eye on the file system and change his or her history. For periodic processes such as backup or archiving, it is best to opt for immediate replication.


Did you know that? Failure to archive is an important factor that can interfere with the backup process. When an inbox is not cleaned, the contents pile up in the common folders, which increases the amount of data to process. A problem that automatically affects storage resources.

Consolidated disk-to-disk backup

It is a matter of transferring the data to be backed up to a remote site in order to easily restore this data in the event of a disaster (flood, fire, etc.). This requires controlling the costs of storage, various operations and data security.

MySQL and MariaDB are still the most used databases in the world. With everything we see on the web about them, it is important to be well informed to maximize the performance of MySQL / MariaDB.

Indeed, all the information available is not necessarily adapted to your situation. Instead of blindly following any suggestion, it is better to opt for a consulting service tailored to your use case.

Did you know ?

MySQL, an open source relational database management system (RDBMS), was deployed in May 1995, then purchased by Oracle in April 2009. From there was born the MariaDB fork, whose objective was to keep the free project under general public license (GPL).
MySQL uses the Structured Query Language (SQL) which is the most popular for managing content within a database.
