EMS SQL Backup for SQL Server is an easy-to-use and powerful tool to perform backup and restore SQL Server databases that includes hot deployment mechanism and monitoring tasks progress.

Quick backup and restore

A high-performance multi-threaded backup significantly saves time needed for backup. A handy Restore Wizard collates the necessary sequence of backup files in accordance with your requirements. Bulk restore wizard provides quick recovery of databases on the server, checking backup set consistency or its deployment on a new server.

Compressing backup files

High speed of backup creation is also governed by use of effective compression algorithm with variable settings of compression and threads number*. The compressed backup feature does not depend on the SQL server version. Saves disk space!

Backup encryption

For security purposes, EMS SQL Backup encrypts backup files while creating them using AES, DES, Blowfish algorithms*. The encrypted backup feature does not depend on the SQL server version.

Cloud services

A set of regular database maintenance tasks

In addition to backup and restore EMS SQL Backup allows to solve such important database maintenance tasks as re-indexing, updating statistics, shrinking, log shipping, etc. Using this set of tasks, it is possible to customize complete database maintenance policies.

Automation of maintenance tasks fulfillment

Any task, including backup and bulk recovery, can be scheduled and executed automatically. Moreover, it is possible to execute not only separate maintenance tasks, but also any sequence of such tasks. E-mail notification mechanism informing of the task execution results is also provided.

Policy engine

Policy engine allows monitoring the execution of tasks deployed with EMS SQL Backup on multiple servers. Every execution error is available for the detailed analysis. Single EMS SQL Backup Administration Console is enough to monitor any number of servers.
