Database Restore Testing

Speaker: Robert Every, Database Administrator Government Contracting Company at Hill Air Force Base

Summary: How do we know the backup files of our databases are corruption free? Why would we care? What could possible go wrong? The hardware is reliable…right? The only way to know our database backup files are in good order is to validate them. How do we do that? One way is to restore the databases from those backup files and check the integrity of the restored databases. This talk will show some benefits of database restore testing and walk through the code of a SQL Agent job that automates it.

About Robert : Robert graduated from BYU in April, 1983 with BS degree in Design & Graphics Technology. His first job after graduation was as a CAD applications developer for General Electric in Pittsfield, MA, and then in Fort Wayne, IN. In Fort Wayne he also managed an electronic document management system (EDMS) for nine years. For five years he developed Visual Basic applications including one to simplify the check-out and check-in processes of the EDMS. In 2005 he transferred to Genworth Financial, a division of GE located in Lynchburg, VA. A week later Genworth was spun off and became its own company. At Genworth he was a systems analyst, data analyst, and an IT project manager. In 2012 he moved to northern Utah and became a SQL Database Administrator, working for a government contracting company at Hill Air Force Base.
