When choosing a backup solution, one of the most important decision factors is reliability. Understandably, when it comes to restores, backup administrators expect not only flexibility from the software, but also a guarantee that data can be restored.
Given how multifaceted and nuanced the topic of data corruption is, it is safe to say that if a vendor guarantees 100% reliability of backups they are not telling the whole truth.

For existing customers, this white paper will help to understand the potential risks and review your Veeam Backup & Replication setups to make sure you are using the product to its maximum potential.

For administrators thinking of buying Veeam Backup & Replication and testing out the trial, this white paper will help to achieve two goals:

  • Set the expectations straight on what Veeam offers and what we cannot promise, if we want to be honest
  • Show that Veeam Backup & Replication has all the tools that, if used right, can make data loss a very unlikely event

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!
