SQL Azure - On premise backup/restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have an application running in Azure which relies on SQL Azure. We would like to create on-premise backups of the database once every day and be able to restore them later on. We have been using a tool from RedGate, but unfortunately we've had some quality issues with it and it has been discontinued.

    I'm aware of the CREATE DATABASE AS COPY OF command, but we want an on-premise backup. I also know that there are services online which allows us to backup SQL Azure datbases, but we want a tool which can be run on-premise which will create a full backup of a database and allow us to restore it later on.

    What options are available?
