One of the most common problems that Storagepipe Solutions encounters when evaluating the data protection plans of companies, is that they haven’t taken adequate measures in dealing with their database backups.
When it comes to Regina database backup or Saskatchewan database backup, there are a number of unique challenges which must be proactively dealt with.
First of all, it’s important to recognize that you can’t simply back up a database server in the same manner that you back up other types of ordinary flat files. Because the data is stored in a completely different manner, you normally have to a large and clumsy flat-file export of the database before it can be backed up. Also, this type of Saskatchewan database backup does not offer any kind of recovery granularity or point-in-time recovery capability.
Another problem relating to Regina database backups is that these databases are usually copied over using old-fashioned “cold backup” methodologies that require the server to be taken offline during the backup process. If your company is running important database applications that must be available around the clock — which is common with web-based applications — then these backup windows are simply unacceptable.
That’s why Storagepipe offers a specialized suite of database backup solutions for companies in Regina Saskatchewan and the rest of Canada. Our database backup services can protect your database servers while they are still in use, thanks to real-time using “hot backup”. And unlike full flat-file database exports, Storagepipe’s Regina database backup services and Saskatchewan database services can protect logical data units (such as tables) with a high degree of granularity. And if you also get the benefit of point-in-time backups, allowing you to roll back the clock to a previous data version.
Storagepipe’s Online Database Backup is perfect for companies in Saskatchewan — such as Regina — that have special requirements when it comes to the protection of their database servers.
