There are many opinions on how to back up the best way, and what the best backup software for MySQL is
. Best practice is mostly a matter of opinion, than often really the best practice.
However, in our opinion the best way to secure your data is not to rely on a single backup strategy. Your hosting provider probably back up your entire VPS, but what do you do if they crash or their backup fail?
There have been plenty of cases where even big companies, with multiple backup-solutions, just forget to control if the backup is actually working. Latest, Gitlab was in trouble
during an uncontrolled backup solution. They used 5 different back up methods, but did not validate the backup!
