All Rights Reserved | info@vitallabs.in Page 3 Executive Summary Microsoft SQL Server with nearly 15% market share is one of the widely deployed relational database systems. SQL Server implementations have become more complex and require more reliability than before. Database service-level agreements (SLAs) require predictable performance, and outages are disruptive and costly for database consumers. SQL Server databases are growing significantly larger to meet the needs of today's organizations, while business requirements dictate shorter backup and restore windows. Meeting the recovery point objective (RPO) - the maximum acceptable level of data loss following an unplanned “event” and recovery time objectives (RTO) - a period of time within which business and / or technology capabilities must be restored, is critical. Application consistent backup tools & capabilities help in meeting these objectives. Vital Labs team has built application consistent backup and recovery tools for Microsoft applications such as SQL Server, Exchange and SharePoint. This case study focuses on backup & Recovery product for SQL Server. The customer for this product was a mid size Storage vendor, based in the bay area, USA. The end users are several enterprises and managed services providers who are actively using these products built by us. Build Application consistent backup tools today!

Implementation approach Recovery Manager for SQL Server (RMSQL) is a Windows host-based application that manages consistent backups and recovery of Microsoft SQL Server databases. Objective of RMSQL is to achieve capabilities of Storage array such as backup, restore, and clone etc at SQL Server database level operations. Recovery Manager for SQL uses Microsoft VSS Framework to create rapid application consistent backups. This technology interfaces with the storage snapshot technology and processes. RMSQL will place SQL database in to frozen state while performing backup. RMSQL will interact with VSS framework to perform database level backup and internally VSS framework place the call to VSS writer (SQL Writer) to freeze database. Then framework interacts with VSS Hardware Provider (Storage Hardware Provider) to create volume snapshot on Storage through REST API’s. Once Storage snapshot copy has been created, RMSQL notifies Microsoft VSS that backup is complete and freeze will be released. RMSQL notifies Microsoft SQL Server that full backup has been created. The architecture diagram is:
