How quickly can Database Vault generate database backups?

The speed at which Database Vault can generate and complete database backups will depend on many factors including…

  • The performance of the system that is generating the backups (CPU, RAM, Drives)
  • The size of the database(s) being backed up
  • The storage method selected and the performance of the device / network

However, for an example using our SQL Server 2014 test system

  • 2500 databases
  • Sizes from ~100MB to 10GB
  • Backup to an external USB disk
  • No ZIP Compression
  • Using SQL Server backup compression
  • Using 3 backup worker threads

We saw completion times ranging from 25 – 35 minutes to do a full server backup of the 2500 databases.
