How it works
Catalogic DPX stands out with its unique ability to offer rapid and easy recovery of essential application data objects. This not only includes Microsoft SQL, but also spans across various platforms and applications. With an intuitive drag-and-drop recovery feature, DPX provides immediate access to mapped backup images, ensuring that recovery times are minimized.

DPX showcases versatility by supporting backup to disk, tape, and cloud, making it an all-in-one data protection solution. The patented block-level protection ensures reduced backup times and minimizes the impact, benefiting both physical and virtual servers. For those looking to explore, DPX even offers a free trial for Hyper-V and VMware backup for new customers.

One of the standout features of DPX is its capability to provide recovery either locally or remotely. This is crucial in disaster recovery scenarios where immediate access to data is paramount. With the added advantage of replication via DPX vStor, data can be efficiently moved off-site, bolstering data protection measures.

In the context of MS SQL, DPX’s block data protection treats SQL Server databases as disks. This offers a streamlined approach to backup and restore operations. For instance, DPX supports SQL Server 2012’s AlwaysOn Availability Groups, catering to primary replica backup and recovery. Additionally, features such as SQL log truncation after backup, backup verification, and the ability to restore databases to both original and new SQL Server instances showcase the versatility and depth of DPX’s protection capabilities.

Five Key Recovery Scenarios in a Microsoft SQL Environment
Recovery Scenario 1: Database Corruption In the event of severe database corruption or data loss due to hardware failure or other issues, Catalogic DPX provides comprehensive recovery capabilities. It can restore the entire SQL Server database to a previous point in time, ensuring business continuity.
Recovery Scenario 2: Server Failure If a SQL Server instance experiences a server failure or crash, Catalogic DPX allows for quick recovery. You can restore the SQL Server instance from the backup image, ensuring that the server is up and running again without significant downtime.
Recovery Scenario 3: Individual Table or Data Loss Sometimes, individual tables or specific data within a database might get deleted or corrupted. DPX offers granular recovery, allowing you to restore specific tables or data items to their previous state, helping to prevent data loss and ensuring accurate records.
Recovery Scenario 4: Transaction Log Recovery In cases where transaction logs are lost or corrupted, Catalogic DPX’s point-in-time restore capabilities come into play. By restoring transaction logs to a specific point in time, you can bring the database back to a consistent state, recovering data up to that point.
Recovery Scenario 5: Database User or Schema Changes Accidental or unauthorized changes to database users, schemas, or permissions can disrupt database functionality. DPX allows for the recovery of specific database objects, user accounts, and schemas, ensuring the database’s structural integrity and access control.
