High-speed SQL Server backup, compression and restore

  • Dramatically reduce SQL Server backup/restore times and storage costs.
  • Save time managing and monitoring SQL Server backup and recovery.
  • Restore individual objects and query backup files without a full database restore.
  • Roll back transactions to recover data/objects that could harm the database.
  • Deploy safe differential SQL Server backups with LiteSpeed Fast Compression and Smart Clean-Up.
  • Integrate directly with IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager (TSM).

Overview

Ensure high-speed, storage-efficient backup and restore for SQL Server databases with up to 85% savings in backup size, storage costs, and restore times. LiteSpeed for SQL Server makes it possible, with minimal effort and risk. Delivering a wide variety of recovery options, LiteSpeed ensures the right SQL Server data is restored and available as quickly as possible. Additionally, LiteSpeed integrates with IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager (TSM) to provide cost-effective, superior data protection controlled by SQL Server DBAs.

Achieve dramatic reductions in SQL Server backup/restore times and storage costs.

LiteSpeed delivers eight compression levels, allowing you to choose the best combination of IT CPU resource utilization and backup storage size reduction for your environment. Alternatively, LiteSpeed’s Adaptive Compression feature monitors available resources and selects an optimal backup compression level that won’t negatively impact SQL Server database and application performance.

Reduce time spent managing and monitoring SQL Server backup and recovery.

Define, schedule, and manage large numbers of SQL Server backup and recovery jobs from one central location. All SQL Server data protection information is stored in one safe location and can be accessed in seconds allowing you to spend far less time building and managing your SQL Server backup and recovery operations. Additionally, you can create and manage common SQL Server backup and recovery templates within LiteSpeed.  Configuration changes to thousands of backup and recovery jobs can be performed with LiteSpeed in minutes — rather than the days or weeks required with manual updates.

You can track all backup activity from one central, easy to understand graphical reporting facility and stop searching for pieces of SQL Server backup information scattered throughout the enterprise.

Restore individual objects and query backup files without a full database restore.

Recreate individual SQL Server database objects prior to fully recovering data. LiteSpeed also improves on recovery granularity and can restore individual database objects, such as a single table and its data. LiteSpeed also allows you to query backups to locate proper restore content and even determine when application data originally became corrupted.

Roll back transactions to recover data and objects from operations that could adversely affect the database

LiteSpeed allows you to recover data and objects from SQL Server transaction logs.  The Transaction Log Reader is essential in recovery when SQL statements or application programs corrupt SQL Server data. With LiteSpeed, you can undo bad SQL statements individually.

Deploy safe differential SQL Server backups with LiteSpeed Fast Compression and Smart Clean-Up

Reduce backup size and storage requirements another 85% over other  solutions by deploying a smart differential backup strategy that copies only changed data. Plus, LiteSpeed automatically checks integrity of all copy sets and can safely remove old backups without losing required full copies of SQL Server instances.

Integrate directly with IBM® Tivoli® Storage Manager (TSM)

By replacing TSM TDP agents with Dell LiteSpeed, you can reduce overall SQL Server data protection costs and gain more capabilities and control.

Features

LiteSpeed for SQL Server dramatically reduces backup/restore times and storage costs while increasing reliability of SQL Server data protection operations across the entire enterprise.  LiteSpeed significantly lowers the time and effort required to manage and monitor SQL Server protection while delivering a wide array of recovery capabilities.
