Red Gate releases SQL Backup Pro Edition for enterprise-level SQL Server implementations
Bundle includes two tools "that should be a part of every DBA's toolbox"
CAMBRIDGE, U.K., January 17, 2006 – Red Gate Software today released SQL Backup Pro Edition, providing high-performance backup and recovery for enterprise-level SQL Server implementations.
SQL Backup Pro Edition, available for $495 per server for a 10-server license, combines Red Gate's SQL Backup and SQL Log Rescue products in a discounted software bundle. It is compatible with both SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2000.
"SQL Backup Pro Edition includes two tools – SQL Backup and SQL Log Rescue – that should be a part of every DBA's toolbox," says Jason Delaune, production DBA at Tulane University. "It was a crucial tool in our backup and recovery efforts surrounding Hurricane Katrina, and will continue to be a vital part of our data security strategy."
Highest levels of security
SQL Backup Pro Edition provides multiple encryption levels up to 256-bit using the AES algorithm, the same standard specified by the U.S. government for encrypting top-secret data.
"Encrypting database backups to the highest levels has become critical due to U.S. regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and California SB 1386," says Simon Galbraith, Red Gate's marketing director. "SQL Backup Pro makes it simple to ensure data integrity, security and recovery at these levels."
The software bundle sets new standards for convenience and flexibility, enabling users to connect and manage all server backups remotely from a central client-based GUI, and take advantage of wizards to plan SQL backups and automate log shipping. Object-level recovery and log analysis is provided through SQL Log Rescue.
Efficient, fast and easy
According to Red Gate, advanced compression levels in SQL Backup Pro Edition provide up to 95 percent smaller backups and deliver speeds up to three times as fast as native SQL Server backups.
"Both tools within SQL Backup Pro Edition are quick to install, easy to learn and use, and allow you to customize things to your liking," says Delaune. "Support for both products is superb, with questions for help being answered in minutes rather than days. You will definitely see an ROI in days and weeks instead of months or years when compared to some competitors' products."
A free, fully functional, 14-day trial version of SQL Backup Pro Edition is available on the Red Gate Software website.
