PSSUG: Peter Ward presents on Business Continuity with Backup and Restore
Author: Brian H. Madsen Date Posted: 9/30/2008 7:16:19 PM
We're running again and this time around we have Peter Ward (again, yay) delivering a business orientated presentation.

There's more news - indeed big news, which will be announced at the event, so be certain that you come along.

We have changed venue (yes i know, again) and this time it's with bells and whistles with food as well.

As you know, we've had Peter present on a number of occasions, so that it's almost fair to say that he's one of our biggest numbers. For you that's been attending a presentation with Peter, you know already that it's going to be great!!

Business Continuity with Backup and Restore
The Backup and Restore commands are the most important SQL Server commands in a Database Administrators arsenal. In the event of a system failure or user error, the Backup and Restore commands provide the ability to recover from what otherwise could be a catastrophe. With the release of SQL server 2005 and 2008 these commands have been enhanced significantly. For example, the ability to take an adhoc backup without affecting the restore sequence and the ability to revert a database from a snapshot. In this session, Peter Ward from WARDY IT Solutions ( will explain how to utilise many of the new recovery features as part of your SQL Server business continuity strategy.
