Basic Systems Backup

Most Windows have relatively basic backup arrangements for their servers. However, server administrators and application teams are handling more business-critical data than ever, ranging from contracts on the file server, to crucial emails in Exchange, to customer data in SQL Server.

As Windows-focused systems increase in importance, Windows administrators and managers need to take a more sophisticated approach to backing up these systems.

In this webcast, industry expert Jacob Farmer, chief technology officer for Cambridge Computer Services Corp., an integrator and VAR specializing in data protection and storage management, identifies some of the bottlenecks that exist in traditional Windows backup systems, while offering his thoughts on:

  • Shortcomings of typical backup systems
  • Short term solutions (i.e. tactical steps to work around the shortcomings)
  • Long term best practices for Windows backup that can help make Windows systems easier to manager and more resilient to server failure or other data problems
