Protecting Microsoft SQL Servers with Zerto 

A disaster or logical failure that impacts the availability of Microsoft SQL Server can result in data loss, significantly reduced employee productivity, and even damage a company’s brand and revenue. Learn more about best practices for protecting your SQL Server with Zerto.

Challenges of Microsoft SQL Protection

Thousands of global organizations rely on Microsoft SQL Server’s robust database application to run their business. Because a disaster or logical failure that impacts Microsoft SQL Server availability can harm your data, productivity, revenue, and reputation, you need to be prepared. To mitigate these risks, it’s extremely important to have a robust disaster recovery plan.

Hassle-Free Microsoft SQL Server Protection with Zerto

By simply selecting the virtual machines (VMs) that host your application and activating protection, Zerto replicates and recovers highly transactional databases, such as Microsoft SQL. Because Zerto uses hypervisor-level replication, no complex application integration is needed to protect Microsoft SQL Servers. Zerto is simple, scalable, and has the following features:

No configuration changes to SQL are required and no SQL knowledge is needed to execute recovery.

Consistent multi-VM application recovery uses Virtual Protection Group (VPG) technology.

No-impact failover testing doesn't break replication or shutdown production. SQL with application servers can be tested in isolated bubble networks.

SQL VSS writer integration allows you to schedule application-consistent points in time.

TempDB initial replication, without subsequent change, saves 50% of replication traffic. 

RTOs of minutes with boot ordering, automatic IP reconfiguration, and no live VM running the recovery site, reduces DR site overheads and complexity.

Physical or virtual Raw Device Mappings (RDMs) can be protected to virtual disks or pre-provisioned RDMs in the target site.
