Update on Backup Tool Testing (Part 2)

After a day of testing, we were able to integrate our Ola Hallengren solution with the Red Gate SQL Backup Pro v7.2 turning a SQL compressed backup on one database from 1.2 GB to 700 MB using compression level 4.  This is a nice reduction for us with storage space being at a premium.  Today we will be testing the SQL HyperBac solution.

All that was needed for Ola’s script was to add the following:

@Compress = ‘Y’,
@BackupSoftware = ‘SQLBACKUP’,
@CompressionLevel = 4

For HyperBac the settings would be:

@Compress = ‘Y’,
@BackupSoftware = ‘HYPERBAC’
