In addition, the binlogs function as incremental backups. With a full backup + binlogs,
you can do point-in-time recovery to any moment you choose.

Since everyone keeps bringing up Innodb's shared tablespace, I will point
out that Innodb has a "file-per-table" option where each table has it own
tablespace. This helps with management issues. While there is still a
central datafile it doesn't contain table data and is much smaller than if
you used a centralized table space.
