SQL Server backup and flexible recovery options

Veeam simplifies SQL Server recovery by providing you several options for restore. From a single image-level backup, you can restore databases or tables and you don’t need to be an expert or know what MDF, NDF and LDF files mean — the wizard-driven recovery process will guide you through, detecting all available databases and instances that you can restore, but that’s not all:

  • You can perform restore of multiple databases at once or all databases on a server.
  • If a database is too large to be restored in a timely manner, you can consider performing table-level recoveryNEW in scenarios when there are no dependencies between the restored and other existing tables.
  • You can run transaction log replay to perform quick point-in-time restores.
