Percona XtraBackup is an open source tool for performing hot backups of MariaDB, MySQL and Percona Server databases.
It can perform compressed, incremental and streaming backups. It was designed to back up XtraDB/InnoDB tables but can also back up other storage engines.
Note that XtraBackup (at least as of 2.4.4) will not work with MariaDB 10.1 encryption or compression.
