Data Backup and Recovery Discussions

backup SQL database from NetApp snapshot or from Veritas SQL agent


We are currently backing up Microsoft SQL databases with Veritas enterprise NetBackup with SQL agent from production server.  Since it is big (2~10TB), we are considering to back it up from NetApp snapshot, we will use SnapCenter to take a snapshot and mount it on a separated host, then back it up with Veritas. WFA will need to be involved in this case.

If you are doing the same, please share your experience with any advantage and disadvantage. thanks



You should try NetApp SnapCenter. 


SnapCenter simplifies backup, restore, and clone lifecycle management by taking application consistent backups (NetApp snapshots). Leverage a centralized GUI for monitoring, notification, logging, reporting, backup schedules, and clone management of Oracle, MS® SQL Server, and SAP HANA® databases, as well as Microsoft Exchange Server, Windows File System, and VMware virtual machines and datastores.
