Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Backup and Restore Using Dell EqualLogic
SQL Server® databases form the backbone for many businesses, housing data for critical applications. Because access to this data is critical for day-to-day business operations, Service Level Agreements (SLAs) demand that databases remain online and available — there is little tolerance for downtime.
Database protection and disaster recovery are among the top concerns for database administrators. Many types of failure scenarios can impact SQL Server database application availability. Requirements for reducing database backup windows, restore times, data integrity and impact on application performance are some of the key considerations while devising a robust data protection strategy, which would ensure critical information remains available and well protected.
