SQL backup tool — independent of the VSS engine

The MSSQL server backup tool does not use VSS snapshots to perform the backup, so it is possible to specify “Enable VSS = no” in the Bacula FileSet. This MSSQL server backup solution achieves advanced backup and restore capabilities via the Microsoft API for SQL Server. Therefore we also support the security mechanisms and authentication types that come with Microsoft SQL Server.


SQL Server Backup Encryption and Compression

With Bacula Enterprise Edition’s SQL Server backup compression capabilities you can enjoy the efficient SQL backup with compression and hence – with much less network bandwidth utilization. Bacula’s security technologies include EFS or TLS encryption which allows you to send MS SQL backups securely from file to storage daemon.

Transaction Log Backup and PITR

Bacula Enterprise Edition allows you to restore MSSQL set of data or a particular setting from a very precise time in the past. With full or bulk-logged recovery models you will be able to do PITR or use LSN information to restore to the exact state that you want to have. You can restore to exactly the required state of data base at a very specific point in time – even down to an exact second. From a Transaction log backup, a restore will compose the database state from a variety of chosen SQL Server backup types.


SQL Backup Automation

With Bacula Enterprise Edition’s scheduling capabilities and scripting features you’re able to implement SQL Server backup automation and reduce time to manage you SQL backups. Backup jobs for your SQL Server can be launched using scripting logic and scheduler.
