Features released: ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL 5.6 High-availability Edition and 5.7 High-availability Edition with local SSD support backup and restoration for individual databases and tables. You can enable Restore Individual Database/Table in Backup Settings. Afterward, ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL will perform automatic backup operations for individual tables. Compared with traditional instance-level backup and restoration, this feature allows you to specify the time for restoring individual tables and greatly improves the restoration efficiency. This feature also supports restoration to a new instance or to an existing instance. If you choose restoration to an existing instance, the system will check conflicts of database names and table names. Therefore, you do not need to purchase another instance for restoration and can avoid complex data migration after restoration. Be aware that you cannot disable Restore Individual Database/Table again after you enable this feature.
