How it works

Vembu offers business continuity and high availability for Microsoft SQL Server as part of backup and disaster recovery solution. Vembu VMBackup helps to backup the MS SQL servers deployed in virtual environments like VMware or Hyper-V and Vembu ImageBackup helps to backup the MS SQL Server deployed in physical environments. So, it backs up the entire VM or physical machine including OS and other files.

So, if source SQL server is unreachable due to system crash or major disaster, you can recover the VM or physical machine instantly using Quick VM Recovery feature on VMware or Hyper-V. Then you can permanently recover the source VM to VMware or Hyper-V by using Full VM Recovery feature or to a new physical machine by using bare-metal recovery feature.

An IT admin might run into a situation where table might get corrupted in any individual database. In this scenario, he does not want to recover entire VM or physical machine. So, he can simply use Vembu Explorer for Microsoft SQL Server, to explore the SQL server database’s physical files such as *.mdf, *.ldf from the source VM or physical machine.

  • In order to recover the individual objects from VMware Backup, Hyper-V Backup or Disk Image Backup that contain SQL Server database, the VM or physical disk should be virtually mounted in disk management of the BDR backup server machine
  • You can install Vembu Explorer for SQL Server in BDR backup server machine or any other Windows machines. Then, you need to select the SQL Server database file *.mdf, *.ldf from the mounted location to list the SQL objects
  • Export the objects in *.sql and *.xls formats and also you can either export schema or data of sql objects
