Use Percona XtraBackup 2.2

Registered by Matt Griffin on 2014-04-23

No new features will be added to Percona XtraBackup 2.1, Percona’s current stable/maintenance branch. New features and enhancements added to Percona XtraBackup 2.2 (soon in Beta) will include:
* Universal binary - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+spec/single-binary
* Lightweight backup locks for Percona Server 5.6 - Only locks the one thing that’s needed rather than lots of locks preventing DDL - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+spec/backup-locks
* Store backup history on the server. Helpful for incremental backups - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/percona-xtrabackup/+spec/history-on-the-server
* Ensure existing 2.1 features like encryption options, log archiving for incrementals (w/ Percona Server), compact backups (eliminate redundant data), and change page bitmaps are supported in Trove.
