Don't Plan a Backup Strategy (Level 2-300)

Don't Plan a Backup Strategy

In many situations, database backups are critical for recovering from a disaster, but there are lots of misconceptions about how backups work and what a good backup strategy is. The purpose of taking backups is, of course, to be able to restore them at some point - but that can sometimes be easier said than done, depending on what you want to be able to restore. In this session, Paul will explain how the three most common types of backups work and how they can be combined into an effective backup strategy. Paul will also cover how restore works, the three recovery options for restoring a backup, and some useful examples. You don't want to find out that your backups are unusable when disaster strikes - this session provides the knowledge you need to make sure you can recover. (This session will assume working knowledge of logging and recovery.)
