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.
