Join Martin Guidry for an in-depth discussion in this video Best practices, part of SQL Server 2014 Backup and Recovery.
- [Voiceover] Now I'd like to give you a few tips…for backing up Microsoft SQL Server.…You certainly need to take some time…to consider the frequency of your backups.…Typically the more frequently you backup,…the better shape you'll be in if a disaster occurs…and you need to restore.…Now be aware that every backup…does take some amount of resources,…so therefore there's going to be some budgetary constraints…on just how practical it is to backup more frequently.…You also need to consider how often your data changes.…Obviously data that changes very frequently…needs to be backed up very frequently,…but data that changes very seldom…doesn't need to be backed up as often.…
You'll also need to consider your storage location.…If you store all of your backups on site…and some physical disaster occurs at your building,…it could destroy not only your servers…but also destroy all of your backup media…meaning you would have no way to restore.…Whereas if you were storing some of your backups off site,…then the physical disaster that destroyed your server…
