SQL Backup and Restore Bundle Combines Red Gate Tools with HyperBac Technology
Industry-leading backup and restore for less than $1K per server; bundle includes new SQL Virtual Restore and two backup options
CAMBRIDGE, UK, August 11, 2010 -- Red Gate has released the first comprehensive backup and restore bundle that combines Red Gate tools with HyperBac technology. The new SQL Backup and Restore Bundle is available from USD$995 per server, with volume discounts available.
Live databases from backup
The newest tool in the SQL Backup and Restore Bundle is SQL Virtual Restore, based on HyperBac technology. SQL Virtual Restore enables users to mount a live database directly from a SQL Server backup, without having to perform a physical restore.
All objects in the mounted virtual database are visible and available, so users can perform smart object-level recovery from a fully functional, transactionally consistent database. The live database mounted by SQL Virtual Restore also carries a near-zero additional storage footprint and can be used in tandem with the two backup tools in the SQL Backup and Restore Bundle to verify backups.
Two backup options
For the first time in a bundle, Red Gate is offering flexible licensing for SQL Backup Pro and SQL HyperBac, enabling users to choose the most appropriate backup compression tool for their environment.
Both tools deliver high-performance compression and encryption for SQL Server backups. The key differences are how the backups are done, where the tool sits on the server, and extra benefits such as job management, network resilience and log shipping provided by SQL Backup Pro.
Red Gate and HyperBac - a natural match
"This bundle reveals why Red Gate and HyperBac are such a natural match," says Simon Galbraith, co-CEO of Red Gate. "The products in the bundle share the same dedication to simplicity and practicality. Individually the products are the best in their class; combined they form the ultimate DBA safety net at an astonishing value."
The complete SQL Backup and Restore Bundle includes:
- SQL Backup Pro - Compresses, encrypts and strengthens SQL Server backups; includes job management, network resilience and self-healing log shipping.
- SQL HyperBac - Delivers "silent compression" for easier, faster and smaller SQL Server backups.
- Flexible licensing for SQL Backup Pro and SQL HyperBac.
- SQL Virtual Restore - Rapidly mounts live, fully functional databases directly from backups.
