Join Martin Guidry for an in-depth discussion in this video Compression, part of Microsoft SQL Server 2014: Backup and Recovery.
- [Voiceover] Some versions of Microsoft SQL Server…allow us to compress our backups.…In SQL Server 2014, it is both the…enterprise and the standard edition…allow compress backups.…The express edition does not.…Some previous versions of SQL Server…only did compress backups in the enterprise edition.…All versions of SQL Server can restore…a compressed backup, so don't worry…about the fact that your backup is compressed,…would cause it to be unable to be restored…by a different version of SQL Server.…
Everybody can restore, that's not a problem.…Just only certain versions can do the compressed backups.…As a little experiment I'm going to do two quick backups,…one with compression and one without compression.…When using T-SQL to backup a database…all we have to do is add the phrase,…"With compression" to the end of the command…and the database will be compressed.…I'll go ahead and run these…and once we get the successful message…I'll go look at the files.…
Without compression came up to 194 megabytes,…with compression only 45 megabytes…
