Massive Reduction in Database Backup Footprint

Quest Software : 11 June, 2010  (New Product)
LiteSpeed for SQL Server from Quest Software enables fast backup and recovery of SQL Server databases with high levels of compression enabling savings of as much as 85 percent in storage requirements
Quest Software is launching a new edition of LiteSpeed for SQL Server, Quest's fast and flexible SQL Server backup and recovery solution, which reduces the database backup footprint up to 85 percent more than traditional compressed backup solutions. Quest will demo the new release, a Best of Tech•Ed Awards finalist for backup and recovery, at Tech•Ed 2010 in New Orleans, booth 1800.

Quest's patent-pending Fast Compression technology provides significant improvements in SQL Server backup performance. These improvements enabled one IT consultancy to cut their client's monthly storage costs by about 75 percent.

LiteSpeed for SQL Server also offers a native backup engine, so DBAs can take advantage of LiteSpeed's compression and encryption technology without having to modify existing backup strategies or SQL scripts.

LiteSpeed's Fast Compression technology significantly reduces backup times, cuts storage costs, and improves database recoverability. Fast Compression's most unique feature is its ability to intelligently manage the backup process by backing up database changes, integrating multi-layered backup validation to ensure backup integrity, and optionally cleaning up old backups from disk.

"By implementing LiteSpeed's Fast Compression, we reduced our client's nightly backups from an average of 220 GB to just 47 GB," said Chris Burns, technical director, Data Technology Consultants. "This cut their monthly storage costs by about 75 percent, making LiteSpeed Fast Compression a huge win for our client, and a huge win for us."

LiteSpeed for SQL Server also features two new compression levels; one is geared toward maximizing compression, while the other suits organizations with lower CPU availability for their backups.

LiteSpeed now includes a complementary engine - LiteSpeed Engine for SQL Server - that provides an extremely easy way for DBAs to compress and encrypt existing SQL Server native database backups.

"The LiteSpeed Engine for SQL Server allows customers to quickly get the advantage of backup compression and encryption without the need to rewrite any scripts," said David Gugick, director of product management, Quest Software. "It's a simple drop-in replacement engine for SQL Server, installs easily, complements an existing LiteSpeed implementation, and saves organizations a lot of backup space."
