Access data in SQL Server backup files with out restoring
Turn backup files into a virtual database! SQL Virtual Database is a
powerful, new one-of-a-kind solution that lets you attach SQL Server
backup files and query them just like they were real databases! Its
revolutionary, patent-pending technology allows DBAs to gain instant
access to critical data in a backup file without wasting the time or
storage necessary to restore the database. Just attach the backup file,
and use any native SQL Server or third party tools to query and extract
the data you need… in minutes.
WHY SQL VIRTUAL DATABASE?
We know that DBA’s are often asked to restore a backup in order to
recover objects or data, compare two systems, or run a report. Today,
the only way to do this is to restore the database, a time and storage
consuming activity. SQL Virtual Database creates a ‘virtual database’
that appears to SQL Server and third-party applications like an actual
database providing access to the data directly without a restore.
This greatly reduces the time for data recovery while also increasing
productivity and reducing resource requirements.
- Retrieve data from backup files immediately
- Use all native and third-party tools to access the virtual database
- Use virtual database for reporting, data extraction, data analysis, and
- Supports read, write and DBCC maintenance commands
- Supports SQL safe and SQL Server full, differential and transaction log
Reduces time and space requirements:
SQL Virtual Database lets DBAs get instant-access to data in full,
differential and log backup files without requiring the additional time or
space to perform a database restore.
Improves DBA productivity:
DBAs continue to use all the tools they already know to access data in
the virtual database. This greatly improves productivity and allows them
to focus on other more important activities.
Easily off-load maintenance and development
DBAs use virtual databases for a virtually unlimited
number of maintenance activities, including: verifying the
integrity of a backup, checking for database consistency,
checking for index fragmentation, testing or verifying code
changes, and many more.
Offers full support for read/write operations:
SQL Virtual Database provides complete support for read
and write operations, including inserts, updates, deletes,
DBCC commands, and more.
Enables object level recovery:
Provides unparalleled object level recovery capabilities for
both Idera SQL safe backup and native SQL Server backup
files.Obtain access to all schema, objects and data using
any language or application.
Offers easy installation and use:
SQL Virtual Database can be installed and configured very
quickly, typically in less than 15 minutes.
