SQL Safe Backup also enables complete “hands-free” automated backups of your entire SQL Server infrastructure and ensures compliance with your organization’s backup and recovery policies. From implementations with tens of SQL Servers to enterprises with hundreds of instances spread around the globe, SQL Safe Backup is the only SQL Server backup and recovery solution that scales to meet the challenge.

What’s New in SQL Safe Backup 8.5.1?

  • Support for Government Cloud Storage
    With this release of SQL Safe Backup, we’ve added support for the government sectors of Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. This addition will allow users to comply with stricter regulatory and compliance requirements and increase the number of government entities that can use the product.
  • TSM Striped Files
    In prior releases of SQL Safe Backup, the option to write striped backup files to the TSM Server was only available in the SQL Safe Web Console. This option has now been added to the SQL Safe Windows Management Console, which will provide additional flexibility to our end users.

This release also includes several bug fixes. For a detailed list of bug fixes, please review the release notes.
