SQL Backup & Exchange Backup to the Cloud or Server
One of the most common questions we get asked about is:
“Can I backup SQL and Exchange files?”
The Answer is: YES!
Backing up Microsoft Exchange and SQL files is very straightforward. When you select an Exchange .EDB file, the WholesaleBackup client will automatically add the appropriate VSS Writer as well as run the Microsoft Eseutil utility to validate the .EDB file.
Whether you choose to backup to the cloud or your own server restoring Microsoft SQL Server databases from MDF/LDF files is simple. The quick easy backup of SQL-Server Databases lowers your total cost of ownership in addition to providing you with speedy deployments. Our intelligent detection of SQL-Server Pre-programmed selections of SQL-Server databases to exclude model and demo databases, but include Master and other databases makes for a no fuss solution
The WholesaleBackup software client is a VSS Reader that makes standardized calls to the VSS API, and thus WholesaleBackup can backup any application such as SQL and Exchange, including some operating system functions supported by Microsoft, which have implemented a VSS Writer for their files. WholesaleBackup’s VSS Reader backs up files in “full copy” mode by default, or optionally “full mode”, and then WholesaleBackup will either use full or differential methods to transmit those files to the backup servers using the method you have specified within WholesaleBackup (the default is differential, a.k.a. delta block, to minimize the client’s Internet bandwidth).
Backup utilities that support Microsoft’s VSS interface are called Readers and are abstracted from details which the application vendor’s specific backup procedure requires, thus allowing a well written Reader to backup dozens of different applications using a single method.
Backup Microsoft SQL Server – if the databases .MDF or .LDF files are selected manually the client will automatically use the SQL Server VSS writer to backup the databases. You can also specify which items to backup using the GUI’s VSS System Components viewer and selecting the SQL Server Writer.
Backup Microsoft Exchange Server – if you manually select the Exchange .EDB file, the WholesaleBackup client will automatically add the appropriate VSS Writer and Microsoft Eseutil utility to validate the .EDB file. You can also use the GUI’s VSS System Component viewer to select the Microsoft Exchange Writer.
Backup Microsoft Outlook – backing up Outlook is simple as selecting the Outlook .PST file to be integrated into the backup schedule. To recover just a Outlook account, restore the .PST file, open Outlook and import the recovered .PST file.
Backup Microsoft SharePoint – use SharePoint Central Administration, Windows PowerShell or SQL Server tools, configure the SharePoint environment backup files to be saved to a specified target backup folder. Add that target folder to your backup service selections and start making regular SharePoint backups on and off site.
