Time reduction methods for backup on SQL Server


Hello ,

There are several methods to shorten the backup time in SQL server.

1. One way to reduce backups is to use back up data compression. This can be easily applied via a third party software or the native option available in SQL Server Enterprise. The three basic back up methods offered in SQL are:

  • Full
  • Differential
  • Transaction

2. Quest’s Lite speed, redgate are common software used for this purpose and visit link for more information.

3. Another way to shorten the back up time is to back up to tape or hard disk. It’s not recommended to back up the database to the same disk used to store database and log file. This can affect the recoverability if the disk fails.
