Catalogic ECX SQL Backup and Restore on Nimble
Catalogic ECX demo of Microsoft SQL backup and restore jobs utilizing HPE Nimble Storage snapshot capabilities within your VMware environment. During this example, we have our ECX virtual appliance, SQL servers, and our Nimble storage. ECX works with both physical and virtual machines and supports the following database configurations: standalone, failover cluster, Always On Availability Groups (AAG). When running backup jobs of VMs, ECX identifies where the VMs sits in the datastore and then it snapshots the appropriate volume. You can then select the databases to be restored from the Nimble snapshots within minutes using Nimble’s zero copy cloning compatibilities. ECX automatically mounts the database back to the server or alternate server of your choice.
