Advanced Microsoft SQL Server database backup
The only way to ensure protection against failures, and other system problems which cause table corruption is by properly backing up your SQL databases with SQL server backup software. SQL based applications not only store raw data, but also logs and system files which are constantly updated. As most businesses do not have the luxury of being able to shut down their databases every time they back up, NovaStor's database backup solution offers advanced capabilities allowing you to backup SQL database without shutting down.
NovaStor's SQL backup solutions utilize the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) writer developed by Microsoft for their SQL Server application through the use of a built-in plugin. This type of backup, comparable to backing up an application after it has been properly shut down, is called application-consistent backup. This methodology for creating backups offers the optimal level of backup (without actually shutting down) with all data captured at the same time, and the memory contents saved to a file.
To protect virtual environments running Microsoft SQL, and to take full advantage of the application specific VSS writer / SQL plugin within our SQL backup software solutions, we recommend running our SQL server backup software on the hypervisor system that is hosting the virtual environment.
Unlike most companies, NovaStor offers true all-inclusive pricing, so you have access to all our product features (and plugins) without any additional charges. This means, you don't pay extra for physical, virtual, or for backing up SQL database. NovaStor SQL server backup solution can also be configured to backup databases to popular offsite storage locations like Amazon S3. All database backup solutions and backup options are covered in a single, all-inclusive backup and recovery software solution.
