SQL Restore: Optimizing Your Data Recovery


When disaster strikes, everyone's immediate question becomes: How long until the system is back online? Whether it's a single database or the whole SQL environment, time is essential... As everyone waits on the restore to complete.

How long will the restoration process take?

Can it run faster?

In this session, we'll answer these questions by looking at how to establish and maintain a Restoration Baseline and the options available for performance tuning database restores.
