We’re excited to announce the release of SQL Safe Backup 8.7.2

SQL Safe Backup provides the industry’s shortest time from starting a SQL Server backup restore to being back online and operating.

SQL Safe Backup enables complete and flexible “hands-free” automated backups for SQL Server deployments in environments ranging from small business to the largest scale enterprise across any combination of data center, cloud deployment including cloud native storage.
