Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft SQL Server

Microsoft SQL Server is one of the most popular relational databases, and usually contains business-critical data. However, data loss or undesired data modification can and do happen due to a number of reasons, including human error that leads to an accidental deletion or modification, database corruption due to hardware failure, viruses, or malware. In order to quickly restore SQL server objects or even an entire SQL server, it’s first necessary to perform application-aware backup, which will ensure that the database data is consistent and can be recovered.

Recovering a Microsoft SQL Server can be a time consuming and complex task, especially if SQL databases are large and data got corrupted. Legacy backup solutions would require you to restore the entire VM with SQL server first and only then restore individual objects. This process is quite long, consumes a lot of resources, and puts an extra load on your environment. The reasonable way out is to use the object level recovery approach.

Instant Recovery of SQL Objects

NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables you to instantly recover SQL objects (databases and tables) directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups (Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and later are supported). You can recover the objects back to the source SQL server, to a different SQL server, or export objects to a custom location. The process of SQL object recovery is simple and straightforward:

1. Run the Instant Object Recovery for SQL wizard.
2. Select a backup and a recovery point.
3. Select a server to which you would like to recover objects.
4. Select the objects that you would like to recover.
5. Set recovery options and hit Recover.
