Backing up SQL Server is different than backing up your conventional file or app servers. Databases have a few really big files, and you don’t want to back up the file itself, and the file is constantly changing, 24/7.

In this session, I’ll explain the pros and cons of each one, and explain where each one makes the most sense.
