I'm not going to argue against the importance of backups but in addition, MySQL 5.6 added
an additional option in delayed replication
- note that though the blog post is looking at the 5.6 DMR, it did make it into MySQL 5.6
GA). Configure one of you slaves to delay applying replication events from its relay log
and this gives you a configurable window to identify a problem with your master's data and
stop it being applied to that slave.
