Quest sponsored on-demand webinar

Webcast Abstract

Ensuring top notch SQL Server backup and recovery is easily attainable when you know which common mistakes to avoid. Discover what these common mistakes are in our webcast: How to Avoid Five Painful SQL Server Backup and Recovery Mistakes.

We’ll be presenting invaluable ideas culled from thousands of discussions with SQL Server administrators about their backup and recovery strategies. Join us and discover how you can avoid these common slip-ups that can make database recovery nearly impossible, and waste significant time, money, and effort, including:

  • Generating excessive storage costs
  • Running full and/or uncompressed backups that exceed maintenance windows
  • Using flawed backup procedures that break SQL Server recovery
  • Failing to optimize the actual recovery environment, prolonging restore times
  • Neglecting to test key business applications after performing a restore
