Redgate SQL Backup Pro

Published By: 


SQL Backup Pro 7 enables you to schedule backup jobs, taking faster, smaller, and more secure SQL Server database backups. It can also test backup files when they are created by including CHECKSUM and RESTORE VERIFYONLY.

Reminders alert you to set up regular backup verification using the Schedule Restore Jobs wizard. Populated with details from the backup job, the wizard also includes an optional database integrity check (DBCC CHECKDB) in the scheduled restore job to fully verify the backup. Version 7 also supports SQL Server 2012.

By automating backup verification, you'll gain peace of mind, and save time, hassle, and budget.
