Microsoft SQL Database Cloud Backup

Microsoft SQL databases are the cornerstone of many small/medium sized businesses. Unfortunately, they're often not backed up correctly, leaving many businesses at risk of significant data loss.

Only when a restore is necessary do users find out the SQL backup did not actually work. The BackupVault cloud backup solution is installed in under 5 minutes and automatically detects an SQL database service.

Databases can be backed up once or multiple times per day and only the changed parts of the database are sent to our secure UK datacentres. This results in very efficient data transfers with no loss of performance.

Why secure your SQL database with BackupVault?

Run The Backup

The BackupVault software utilises Microsoft VSS to backup running SQL databases with ease. Subsequent backups only send the changed parts of the database, resulting in rapid backups.

To restore a database, you can simply select the previous point in time you wish to restore, then select the database to recover. You can either inject the restored database directly back into a running SQL instance, or restore the mdb/ldf files for later use.

What Our Clients Say

Martyn Kaye
Heatmiser UK
“We have used BackupVault for several years now after trying many other systems and being dissatisfied. Backup systems only prove their worth when a system failure happens, and after such a failure BackupVault worked above and beyond what was expected to get our systems operational, involving restoring a large SQL DB. Their UK based phone support and proactive support are the primary reasons why I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend BackupVault.”
Paul Griffin

“GCIS, a leading Managed IT Services company based in Hertfordshire have used BackupVault to enhance our offering to our clients. We find use of the service effortless. It just works. Our clients enjoy the knowledge that their data is encrypted at all times and does not leave the UK, and that when the need arises data is recovered promptly. The 24/7 technical support is handy, but with such reliability it is hardly used. ”

Mark Sinclair
Local IT Care
“As an IT consultant for a number of large clients I needed a backup solution that was both fast and über reliable. The solution provided by BackupVault offers this and has helped a number of my clients recover data within minutes that would of previously taken hours to recover using their old tape solution. ”
Neil Litten
Phoenix SSI
“Phoenix have been using BackupVault for our clients’ offsite backups for around 18 months. In that time we have had no loss of service so I have only contacted them with general questions which they have answered promptly and helpfully. On a personal level restoring databases that have corrupted while I have been working on them has proved to be a life saver on several occasions, while the ability to restore client files hit by ransomware viruses has proved equally vital. For individual or small groups of files the whole process takes under a minute which is always impressive when onsite with an anxious client. BackupVault has quickly become a crucial part of our overall backup strategy.”
Rob Whittlesey
Digital Medic Ltd
“BackupVault is fantastic. We started rolling it out to our clients about 5 months ago, and haven’t looked back. Any issues we have encountered have been due to client security settings and the helpful support guys helped us get everything up and running in no time. The software is pretty much set it up and let it do its thing, don’t need to do much else. The system can email you a report to let you know what’s happening on a regular schedule. Our clients are happy that all their data is held in the UK, what with the current unknown political element in the USA. Data transfer speed is great, most clients don’t even know the system is running, until we recover an accidentally deleted file for them in seconds, some of the non-techy clients think this is some sort of magic! I would certainly recommend this service to anyone wishing to provide a backup solution to their clients. ”
