Idera SQL safe 6.5 Further Speeds Database Recovery, Simplifies Database Synchronization

Newest Version of SQL Server Backup, Recovery Solution Reduces Recovery Times by 30%

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) -  Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration tools, today announced the latest version of its award-winning SQL Server backup and recovery solution, SQL safe™ 6.5. SQL safe saves time and money by reducing database backup time by up to 50% over native SQL backups and reducing backup disk space requirements by up to 95%. SQL safe also enables complete "hands-free" automated backup of an organization's entire SQL Server infrastructure and ensures compliance with backup and recovery policies. 

The new version of SQL safe includes the following features:

  • Restore Performance: Restore performance improvements reduce recovery time up to 30%.
  • Restore Policies: Simplify database synchronization and automate disaster recovery by routinely restoring full backups to a secondary server.
  • Login Copy: Bring recovered databases online faster by allowing SQL safe to create missing SQL Server logins and resolve any orphaned database users.
  • Granular Alerts: Backup and restore alerting sends notifications for each operation status including failures, skips, warnings, and successes.
  • Delete Backup File Option: Use this CLI/XSP command to delete old backup files without performing a new backup.

"Databases are growing exponentially in size and the time required for backup and recovery is also growing dramatically," said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. "SQL safe 6.5 enables you to bring your databases back online faster by reducing recovery times up to 30% over previous versions and by resolving any missing logins or orphaned database users."

Pricing and availability
SQL safe 6.5 is available today and is $995 per instance.
