LiteSpeed for SQL Server Performance Evaluation

With the increasing size of datasets being managed by SQL Server, database professionals need to be able to effectively manage these datasets. Day-to-day management includes backup and recovery, efficiently managing storage space, and optimizing performance of backup and recovery operations - meeting maintenance windows. 

Quest used NetVault LiteSpeed™ for SQL Server to demonstrate three factors affecting database backup and recovery performance: the effect of striping a backup across multiple disks, data compressibility (the type of data you are backing up), and scaling hardware.
