Backing Up a Database

  • Bradley Beard


Backing up a database is arguably the most important aspect to database administration. Without backups, you cannot recover in cases of data loss or corruption. You cannot rebuild quickly without the data that you, ultimately, are responsible for. Have you ever met a DBA that is sort of mehhhh about backups? I guarantee you that is because they are either lazy or have never had to recover from a catastrophic failure. The worst part about either of those reasons is that one is by choice and one is by circumstance, but both can be remediated with a little foresight and planning.
