Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Virtual Machine Protection Using IBM Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager

IBM Tivoli Storage Flash Copy Manager takes advantage of the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) framework to provide rapid application-aware backups and restores using IBM XIV Storage System Gen3 advanced snapshot technology. This white paper describes VMware ESX 5.1 business-critical database protection for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Virtual Machines (VMs). Installation, configuration and best practice guidelines are shared exclusively for guest-initiated local backups and restores of Microsoft SQL Server Always on Availability Group (AAG) databases yet many of the data protection concepts can be applied to traditional Microsoft SQL Server databases.
