  • Quest Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: QSFT)  today released a new version of LiteSpeed® for SQL Server, which now offers multi-instance backup management so DBAs can easily apply consistent backup strategies across the entire SQL Server environment. The new release also includes Adaptive Compression, a feature that automatically performs real-time adjustments to backup compression in response to changing server loads. A Best of Tech-Ed finalist in backup and recovery, LiteSpeed for SQL Server will be showcased at the event, May 16-19, in Quest booth 403.
  • LiteSpeed’s new Backup Templates feature gives DBAs the ability to design and, when needed, modify SQL backup strategies and easily deploy them to the entire SQL Server environment across the organization. 
  •  LiteSpeed also now includes an Adaptive Compression feature which automatically performs real-time adjustments to backup compression in response to changing server loads. Users can automatically leverage available server resources for optimal backup processing and smaller backups in the shortest possible time – all without affecting other SQL Server operations or processes running.
  • Adaptive Compression is now supported by LiteSpeed’s patent-pending Fast Compression technology, which can reduce backup storage and backup time by up to 85 percent over competing solutions by intelligently backing up only database changes.     


David Gugick, director of architecture and design, Quest Software

  • “Using LiteSpeed’s new Backup Templates, users can quickly manage backups across the entire enterprise directly from LiteSpeed to reduce administration overhead and adapt quickly to changing business requirements. Combined with Fast Compression and our new Adaptive Compression support, LiteSpeed raises the bar for SQL Server backup and recovery, giving DBAs the fastest backups at the smallest possible size to save valuable storage, improve maintenance windows, and reduce administration costs.”
