A critical piece is missing for Oracle MySQL 8 (GA) …

Oracle MySQL 8.0 has been declared GA but a critical piece is missing …
MySQL 8 is a fantastic release embedding the work of brilliant Oracle engineering.
I will not detail all the great features of MySQL 8 as there are a lot of great presentations around it.

One of my main concern regarding MySQL 8 is that it comes without an online backup solution. You only have access to online backup through MySQL Enterprise Backup that you get with a MySQL Enterprise Edition subscription. This is 5000 USD per server per year.So if you have 20 servers for 10 years usage of online backup you will give 1 million $ to Oracle
