SQL Backup Pro

by Red Gate Software - Product Type: Application

Compressed and encrypted backup and recovery for SQL Server databases. SQL Backup Pro creates smaller, safer, faster backups of SQL Server databases. Backups are compressed, reducing storage space and hardware requirements (often known as "database zip"), they are created in less time than native backups and are securely encrypted. Native SQL Server backups are essentially just a dump of data stored in SQL Server .mdf and .ldf files. This is an inefficient and insecure way of storing backup data as it is stored unencrypted, unprotected and uncompressed. SQL Backup Pro is an enterprise-level tool that scales to meet the needs of larger SQL Server implementations. Access and manage all server backups remotely, from a central, client-based GUI. Secure your data, and meet compliance requirements, with 256-bit AES encryption.

What's new in SQL Backup Pro 7.7

New features

  • Support for backing up and restoring SQL Server 2014 databases
  • SQL Backup UI and the SQBHostedStorageClient.exe now run on .NET 4 only platforms


Bug fixes

  • The Activity History no longer scrolls to the top of the list when the auto-refresh is triggered

 This release also include three previously released patches:

  • Fixed an issue in SQBHostedStorageClient.exe where it was occasionally possible for a backup to become corrupted during upload to hosted storage
  • Fixed a crash in the SQB Convertor UI when converting SQB files to native SQL backups
  • Fixed spurious 976 error message when backing up an AlwaysOn secondary

Version 7.7 will be the last general release of SQL Backup Pro to support the Itanium platform. Formal support for Itanium will end on 8th July 2015. This is based on Microsoft's decision to phase out Itanium support which neither of the last two releases of SQL Server have supported.

What's new in SQL Backup Pro 7.6

  • Fixes security vulnerability identified in V7.4 and 7.5.

What's new in SQL Backup Pro 7.5

  • Improved Windows 2012 Cluster installation support.
  • SQL Server 2012 support in the Maintenance Plan Conversion Wizard.
  • When backing up, you can use the USEQUEUEDCOPY keyword to place backup files in the transaction log copy queue providing additional retries. 
    This means that in the event of long network outages, SQL Backup will keep trying to copy the file for 24 hours.
  • Allow reading of password from a text file, as an alternative to storing it in a SQL Server Agent Job.
  • Improved upload performance for backups to Hosted Storage.

What's new in SQL Backup Pro 7.4

  • Changes to the Install Server Components and Upgrade Server Components wizards to facilitate installing and upgrading the server components on remote machines.
  • When backing up or restoring, you can use WITH ERASEFILES_PRIMARY and ERASEFILES_SECONDARY to manage existing backup files.
  • When restoring transaction log backups, you can use WITH DELAY to specify a minimum age for backups. This is useful if you are log shipping to a standby server, and want to maintain that server at a certain period of time behind the primary server.

What's new in SQL Backup Pro 7.3

  • Upload a copy of backups to a SQL Backup Pro Hosted Storage account with the backup wizards or using the COPYTO_HOSTED keyword.
  • Track the progress of uploading backups to hosted storage from the In Progress tab and cancel the upload if required.
  • View results of copying backups to hosted storage or a network location from the Activity History and Backup Properties.
  • Manage off-site backups from the SQL Backup Pro Hosted Storage website.

What's new in SQL Backup Pro 7.2

  • Default names for scheduled backup jobs now include information about the databases in the job.
  • Log Shipping wizard steps re-ordered and validation introduced to prevent network share and MOVETO folder being the same.
  • It is now possible to double-click anywhere on a reminder to launch the Schedule Restore Jobs wizard.
  • On step 2 of the Schedule Restore Jobs wizard, Create new database is always selected and populated by default.

SQL Backup 7.1 is a minor release and includes the following enhancements plus bug fixes:

Enhancements

  • The Jobs tab contains an additional 'Database' column to show which databases are included in each job.
  • The height of rows in the Activity History has been reduced
  • In differential or transaction log backup jobs for multiple databases, you can specify WITH FULLIFREQUIRED to take a full backup of any databases which require one before a differential or transaction log backup can be taken. This option is not available from the backup wizards.

SQL Backup 7.0 is a major upgrade from SQL Backup 6.5 and includes the following new features:

  • Schedule a recurring restore from a full backup or set of backups that does not exist yet by specifying a folder and file name pattern to identify the latest backup each time the job runs.
  • Schedule a recurring restore from specific backup files which form a full backup or set of backups.
  • Run a database integrity check as part of a scheduled restore job.
  • Drop a database after a scheduled restore job has completed, or only if the restore and integrity check (if applicable) were successful.
  • Take a copy-only backup using the Back Up or Schedule Backup Jobs wizards.
  • Include CHECKSUM in the backup process using the Back Up or Schedule Backup Jobs wizards.
  • Create a reminder to set up backup verification using the Schedule Backup Jobs wizard.
  • Launch the Schedule Restore Jobs wizard from the Reminders tab, populated with details from the scheduled backup job, to set up backup verification.
  • View results of CHECKSUM and DBCC CHECKDB in the Activity History.
  • Various bug fixes.

SQL Backup 6.5 is a minor release that includes various engine improvements and bug fixes:

New features

  • Ability to choose "existing database file location" as well as the SQL Backup suggested defaults.

Bug fixes and improvements

  • Improvements to purging backup files in the following cases:
    • when folders contain spaces in the name
    • when the restored database name differs from the original database name

  • GUI – take advantage of the user-friendly wizards to guide you through the backup and restore process.
  • Timeline Monitoring™ lets you visualize the properties of past, current and future activities. The timeline is highly interactive, allowing you to zoom in and out to view potential clashes and the status of backups and restores. With one click, you can quickly change the properties of scheduled backups and restores.
  • Enhanced backup and restore history are available in both the timeline and the activity history tab, so that you can identify problem areas before they cause backups to fail.

  • Command-line interface – for power users who want total control of SQL Backup. Use syntax similar to T-SQL's BACKUP and RESTORE commands to set up your maintenance plans.
  • Extended stored procedure – run backup and restore operations using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.
  • Split backups – take advantage of multi-CPU and high-speed disk array systems to speed up the backup and restore process even further.
  • Mirrored backups – create two or more backup files simultaneously to different disks, to minimize the possibility of media errors.
  • Multiple threads within the engine let you achieve backups to a single file faster.
  • Log Shipping wizard guides you through the process of setting up log shipping backup and restore jobs.
  • Hints for on-the-spot software support – click the Hints icons on the GUI to read concise tips when you want assistance.

*Please note that if SQL Backup Lite is installed on the SQL Server, you can choose only compression level 0 (no compression) or compression level 1, the default compression level. Level 1 is the fastest compression level, but it can result in larger backup files than backup files produced using compression level 2 or 3. Compression levels 0, 1, 2 and 3 are all available with a SQL Backup Pro license.
