SQL Server Backup and Recovery

Protect your SQL Server environment with Rapid Recovery software, and you can be certain that your backups will be fully recoverable, without time-consuming manual backup testing. The Rapid Recovery Verified Recovery capability tests every SQL Server backup automatically, even if you’re backing up many times a day.

Return to operations after an outage in as little as 15 minutes by using the Live Recovery capability, which restores user-requested data on demand while full restore goes on in the background — with zero impact on your users’ application experience.

Enjoy agentless backup and recovery for Microsoft SQL databases residing on your virtual machines.

SQL Server Backup

How Live Recovery works:

Block-level snapshots

Rapid Recovery captures your SQL Server data, as well as the application itself, in a collection of block-level snapshots for backup.

Application awareness

Rapid Recovery makes sure that all open transactions and rolling transaction logs are completed and caches are flushed to a disk before it creates a snapshot. Rapid Recovery leverages Microsoft VSS for application-consistent snapshots.

Fast restore technologies

Rapid Recovery restoration of metadata allocation tables and database structures, along with its filter driver and queuing technology, lets you get back online within seconds after a failure.

File prioritization

If a user attempts to access data while a restoration is in progress, Rapid Recovery will determine whether that particular data has been restored and will prioritize the immediate restore of the requested record as necessary. Your end users get fast access while recovery continues in the background — with zero impact on their application experience.

How Verified Recovery works:

Automated nightly checks

When you protect using Rapid Snap for Applications, Rapid Recovery tests every backup automatically, assuring you that your backups are fully recoverable — eliminating the need for time-consuming manual backup testing.

Integrity checks

Rapid Recovery performs nightly backup integrity checks on all protected servers in just a few seconds.

SQL attachability check on host SQL

Rapid Recovery performs nightly attachability checks on the source agent to reduce the load on the Core server and limit SQL licensing problems.


If Rapid Recovery finds problems with a sql backup that would prevent you from restoring the data, it notifies you so that you can fix the backup issue proactively.
