Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 for Microsoft SQL Server is a powerful and innovative product for Microsoft SQL Server deployments. The patent-pending Acronis single-pass technology combines two backups in one, eliminating the need to have separate strategies for data protection and disaster recovery of Microsoft SQL Servers.
While the backup protects the entire server, restoring SQL data is completely SQL aware. Any type of recovery - disk, file, SQL database or the entire server - can be performed quickly and via a user-friendly interface, from a single backup.
More reliable backups
Separate backup agents or even different backup solutions to protect your operating system and application server data translates to multiple backup jobs per server, with different schedules, settings and data vaults. Many moving pieces mean more things that could break, requiring administrator attention or contacting vendor support. Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 for Microsoft SQL Server works differently. It uses a single-pass backup approach where the backup plan that protects your operating system and files also protects your Microsoft SQL Server data. This minimal-touch approach with regard to SQL translates to a more reliable backup, leaving more time for IT personnel to concentrate on business critical tasks, rather than troubleshoot failing backup jobs.
Shorter backups, less storage
Running multiple backup passes on each server will likely lead to reading and storing the same data multiple times, increasing backup time and storage space requirements. The single-pass backup approach is the most efficient from both a time and storage standpoint. Combined with the award-winning Acronis disk snapshot technology and highly efficient binary incremental backups, Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 for Microsoft SQL Server provides an out of the box solution which is both fast and efficient without lengthy and error prone tunings for each individual Server.
