HyperBac No More

In case you missed it last week, Red Gate announced the death of the HyperBac tool for backup and recovery.  I am not surprised by this move as the features were pretty much the same as the Backup Pro tool also offered by Red Gate. When I setup a test case for the tools in comparison with Backup Pro and native compression, it consistently had the worst compression ratios.

However, I was a little sad about the death of the Virtual Restore piece of HyperBac.  This tool had great potential, especially since we just figured out how to script it to autoMAGICally restore all of our backups on a nightly basis.  Maybe they will be able to incorporate this piece into the Backup Pro tool.  Only time will tell, I guess.  Enjoy!
