Is your data protected and safe? It may not be as safe as you might think!
Many smaller companies just have their network/systems person backup the databases. However, many times, smaller companies lack the process and procedure to ensure that the data is actually safe and recoverable in the event of a disaster. We have seen many cases where the backup files are stored on the same disk as the data file or transaction log file. This is bad. If a disk set fails, it means you lose the backups along with the data.
Storing them on tape helps, but this is usually only done nightly or every few hours. This is typically far too long to easily recover from in the event of a failure. At SQLWatchmen, we ensure your data is protected. We regularly, according to your SLA terms, restore from your backups to ensure they are working properly. Disasters are rare, but when we are on the watch, recovery is quick and usually results in no data loss. We’ll have your business up and running in no time.
