Our MySQL backup strategy is to replicate our database to a second server and then run mysqldump on that server to get rid of any downtime from table locking. It's working great but the cost is huge (Over $150 per month on that second server). Anyone know of another way to do MySQL backups cheaper? Would LVM snapshots work?
