It’s hard to imagine an infrastructure without an SQL Server installed. Some organizations are fortunate enough to have dedicated an SQL Server database administrator. More often, however, IT admin have to wear multiple hats to manage multiple applications simultaneously. Your approach to SQL Server backup will depend on if your company is DBA-centric or backup-operator-centric in the administration of its SQL Servers.

When you use Veeam to protect your virtualized assets you have two options to back up your SQL Servers. You can use the SQL Server route and generate SQL Server backups into files, which Veeam picks up and stores on a backup server. Another option is to use the Veeam route, where Veeam is used both for the machine backup and also for backup of SQL Server databases.

Read this white paper to learn more about SQL Server backup and learn about:

  • SQL Server backup types, including both the traditional and snapshot-based methods used by third-party, backup solutions like Veeam
  • Identifying the proper Veeam settings for the SQL Server route
  • Performing transaction log backups inside Veeam when using the Veeam route
  • And much more!

Microsoft Office 365 is the largest solution for digital collaboration today. Office 365 customers can choose to connect to their on-premises workloads and benefit from a seamless user experience — even when moving between different environments — creating a hybrid platform. Office 365 has a high adoption rate by businesses of all sizes.

While Office 365 offers an undisputed flexibility with the integration of several solutions, it deeply focuses on the infrastructure management rather than data management. The responsibility for data management and its Availability still belongs to the respective owners leveraging the Office 365 services.

In fact, Office 365 data center uptime refers to the infrastructure rather than data hosted in the data centers. Infrastructure uptime does not include cases where the data center itself can provide an effective way to recover from:

  • Accidental deletions
  • Data loss / corruption
  • Rogue apps / insider threats
  • Outages

This white paper covers the implementation of Veeam® Backup for Microsoft Office 365’s solution and its architecture.

The complexity of IT environments today has made datacenter modernization an urgent priority. In the event of data loss or corruption, this can cost companies a large sum of money. Proactively addressing risks through better protection costs far less money. That’s likely a big reason why when ESG interviewed Veeam® and Cisco UCS customers, they stated that the shared traits of reliability, performance and manageability of these solutions were crucial factors.

Additionally, ESG validation testing proved what IT already knows:

Veeam and Cisco UCS are better together.

  • The performance of the Veeam/Cisco combination is 28.9% higher than the alternative assessed by ESG Lab
  • Price/performance of Veeam/Cisco solution is 49% lower than the examined alternative
  • With Veeam/Cisco, configuring a backup job, copy job, replication job and instant recovery is easy, and the solution proved to be scalable

Visibility into the data center allows businesses to evaluate the health state of its core operations. To be able to optimize your infrastructure, you first must know and understand what is occurring in your data center.

Monitoring and reporting on data operations allow users to become proactive in addressing problem areas, implementing improvements, and gaining knowledge on just how well their data center is running. In other words, it helps prevent server sprawl, overprovisioned machines, and lack of visibility.

Having a tool to gain control over virtualization and report on these environments is essential in telling you what VMs are needed, are they in use, and if they are provisioned properly, allowing you to optimize data center operations while inevitably ensuring data Availability for your business.

This paper aims to discuss why utilizing a monitoring and reporting tool in your environment can improve decision-making, data center operations, and increase visibility into your environment.
