SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) developed and marketed by Microsoft. As a database server, the primary function of the SQL Server is to store and retrieve data used by other applications.
Sybase and Microsoft released version 1.0 in 1989. The partnership between the two companies fell apart in the early 90s, but Microsoft kept the rights to the name SQL Server.
SQL Server is Microsoft’s relational database management system (RDBMS). It is a full-featured database primarily designed to compete against competitors Oracle Database (DB) and MySQL.
Like all major RBDMS, SQL Server supports ANSI SQL, the standard SQL language. However, SQL Server also contains T-SQL, its own SQL implemention. SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) (previously known as Enterprise Manager) is SQL Server’s main interface tool, and it supports 32-bit and 64-bit environments.
SQL Server is sometimes referred to as MSSQL and Microsoft SQL Server.
A SQL Server Intelligent Policy lets you create a single policy to protect multiple SQL Server instances or the databases in an instance. These instances can be spread over multiple clients. You can select SQL Server instances for a policy from a list of instances that are automatically discovered in the NetBackup environment.
The SQL Server Intelligent Policy includes the following criteria:
Storage unit and media to use
Backup schedules: Full, differential-incremental, transaction log
Instances, databases in an instance, or instance groups to back up
Backup selections: Whole database, filegroups, or files
NetBackup offers the following ways to configure a SQL Server policy:
The Policy Configuration Wizard of the NetBackup Administration Console: The wizard guides you through the setup process by automatically choosing the best values for most configurations.
The SQL Server Policy utility of the NetBackup Administration Console: This utility contains all the settings and parameters you need to create or change a SQL Server Intelligent Policy.
