  • Integrate directly with Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3 and IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager (TSM).

Ensure high-speed, storage-efficient backup and restore for SQL Server databases with up to 85 percent savings in backup size and duration when compared to competing solutions. LiteSpeed for SQL Server makes it possible, with minimal effort and risk. Delivering a wide variety of recovery options, LiteSpeed ensures the right SQL Server data is restored and available as quickly as possible. LiteSpeed integrates with Microsoft Azure Blob storage and Amazon S3 to provide cloud-based backup and restore for on-premises and virtualized cloud SQL Server instances. LiteSpeed also integrates directly with IBM TSM.

Achieve dramatic reductions in SQL Server backup/restore times and storage costs
LiteSpeed includes eight compression levels, allowing you to choose the best combination of CPU resource utilization and backup storage size reduction for your environment. Alternatively, the Adaptive Compression feature puts LiteSpeed in charge of automatically adjusting compression during backup for the best backup speed without negatively impacting SQL Server database performance.

Reduce time spent managing and monitoring SQL Server backup and recovery
Define, schedule and manage all your SQL Server backup and recovery jobs from one central location. Create and manage backup jobs with LiteSpeed’s backup template. Define your backup strategies and then deploy to hundreds of instances and thousands of databases in minutes.

Track all backup and restore activity from one central location to quickly identify issues, understand the cause and re-execute backups in seconds.

Restore individual objects and query backup files without a full database restore
Preview and restore table data and object information directly from backup files without the need to perform time-consuming full restores. LiteSpeed fully indexes backup files for fast granular restore, reducing restore time considerably.

Roll back transactions to recover data and objects from operations that adversely affect the database
Review, undo or redo transactions with LiteSpeed’s Transaction Log Reader and recover from accidental or malicious operations that negatively affect your database. Inspect transactions on a live database, a backup file or an offline database. Recover dropped or truncated tables, reverse DML and DDL operations, and keep your databases operational without the need for a full restore and extensive downtime.

Deploy safe and managed differential backup strategies with LiteSpeed Fast Compression and SmartCleanup
Reduce total backup storage and improve backup speed another 85 percent over competing solutions by deploying smart differential backups. LiteSpeed automatically checks backup set integrity to ensure databases can be restored, minimizes differential backup size to improve backup speed and storage and minimize restore time, and ensures backup files are properly maintained for retention.

Integrate directly with Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3 and IBM TSM
LiteSpeed now backs up to and restores directly from Microsoft Azure Blob storage and Amazon S3. Back up directly to the cloud for disaster recovery and avoid the need for local backup disk storage. LiteSpeed supports backups to Microsoft Azure and Amazon S3 from on-premises SQL Servers as well as virtualized SQL Servers in the cloud.

Directly back up to and restore from TSM. Improve backup speed, reduce backup storage and eliminate the need for the TSM SQL Server TDP agent with LiteSpeed.

Dramatically reduce backup and restore times and minimize storage costs while increasing the reliability of SQL Server data protection operations across the entire enterprise. Easily manage and monitor SQL Server protection while delivering a wide array of recovery capabilities. With LiteSpeed, a complete workbench of SQL Server recovery tools are at your fingertips so you can get data back online — fast.
