What thrid party tools are you using for backup compression? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few SQL Server 2008 standard edition instances and I'm curious to what third party tools people are using for backup compression. I know upgrading to enterprise edition or  SQL Server 2008R2 or above will give me that compression but I do not have that option right now. I'm familiar with Idera, Red gate and Litespeed and I just want to know what else is out there.

    Thank you in Advance.

  • There are many third party tools.

    But Why third party tools?

    SQL Server integrated Backup and restore feature is complete. For more info please see these links:

    Maybe you should care to read the original post. DBA_attack runs SQL 2008 Standard Edition, which does not have backup compression.
