About this talk

Backing up systems is not optional for any environment. For those using Microsoft SQL Server, that also means considering databases to ensure you meet recovery point objectives (RPOs). In this TechTalk, we will discuss traditional SQL Server backups and their strategies versus snapshots in FlashArray as well as address common questions and concerns when using snapshots including, but not limited to: How are snapshots both different as well as similar to a traditional SQL Server backup? What are the use cases for both? When should you combine for a more robust disaster strategy? Whether you are a DBA, storage admin, or just someone responsible for SQL Server on FlashArray, attend this TechTalk to not only take advantage of what FlashArray offers, but also ensure you have the right backup and recovery/restore strategy for your SQL Server deployments.
