Avoiding 5 Common SQL Server Backup Mistakes

As businesses become increasingly reliant upon data for day-to-day operations, backups take on an increasingly important role. Yet, sadly, many DBAs simply aren't as prepared as they need to be when it comes to ensuring that they have regular, viable backups on hand to protect against disasters. More importantly, many DBAs fall prey to a number of common backup mistakes—only to discover the costly consequences of these mistakes when it’s too late.

To learn more about five common backup mistakes and how to avoid them, join independent SQL Server consultant and expert Michael K. Campbell for an informative overview of the most common mistakes that DBAs make when it comes to backups. You’ll learn about simple techniques that you can employ to ensure that your backups are solid and that your data is safe
