This year, World Backup Day was on Sunday, March 31, 2019. Per my blog post from two years ago “Guidelines for Backup and Recovery of Databases”:
“World Backup Day is a day for everyone to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and how important regular backups are. This day is not only a day for backing up data, but it is also a day to discuss the massive task of preserving the increasingly digital heritage and cultural works for future generations. Apparently, the previous year produced more than 2.5 quintillion bytes or 2.5 exabytes of data. Moreover, the past two years generated more data than the entire preceding recorded history. That is a significant amount of data to lose. Protect your data by backing up your data. World Backup Day is on March 31st. Then again, World Backup Day is every day since a quality backup plan is continuous.”
This year, I share with you free resources that IDERA provides concerning database backups and restores.
