Your SQL Server is exposed to the threat of data loss. Any of these incidents can make your missional critical databases irretrievable, such as ransomware, hardware failure, network intrusion, natural disaster, theft, human error, etc. Thus, a robust SQL backup solution such as CloudBacko is a must-have solution for protecting it.
To avoid disastrous data loss, the best practice is to keep at least 2 copies of your data:
For SQL backup to offsite location, since it is not your own environment, make sure to enable encryption to prevent somebody from stealing your data. With CloudBacko Pro, no lazy encrypting keys such as "abc123" or "123456" will be used. It provides unbreakable encryption to your SQL backup, as all the data and filenames can be encrypted with an 256-bit truly randomized key. Even a 10.51 Pentaflops supercomputer needs 3.31 x 1056 years to crack such key. Therefore, hackers will not be able to crack your backed up data on the cloud.
When your SQL Server is down, you don't want to restore to a backup that was manually taken a year ago. Therefore, you need a solution that can run automatically once or several times a day by itself based on your pre-configured schedule, so that you can restore to the latest version when needed. CloudBacko Pro allows you to define your own schedules to run your SQL Server database backup (e.g. after work everyday).
It's always good to keep mulitple previous versions of your SQL backup, so that when you realize it's not the latest backup you want to restore to, you can still choose an earlier version to restore. With CloudBacko's powerful retention policy setup, it is simple and flexible to define various versioning rules to suit your version retention needs.
With our multi-thread and block-level incremental backup technologies, CloudBacko Pro is able to quickly backup large SQL databases to your local and offsite storage.
