Idera Announces Instant Restore for SQL Server Databases

Revolutionary New Technology Recovers Databases from Backups and Brings Them Online Immediately

LAS VEGAS – OCTOBER 31, 2011 – In booth #307 at the DevConnections Conference, Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration solutions, today announced  Idera SQL safe™ 7.0. Idera SQL safe is a high-performance backup and recovery solution for Microsoft SQL Server. With the new, revolutionary Instant Restore technology in version 7.0, production databases can be recovered and online in minutes, not hours.

“With traditional database backup and recovery solutions, users cannot access data until a restore is fully complete,” said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Solutions at Idera. “SQL safe 7.0 solves this problem by not requiring the entire database to be recovered in order for it be brought online. We’re excited about this new technology and invite DBAs to try it out and send us their feedback.”

SQL safe Instant Restore virtually eliminates database and application downtime during a restore operation. It brings a database online in record-breaking time by streaming data from the backup file “on-demand” to support application and user requests  while completing the restore operation in the background.
