Backing up a server database is a lengthy process, especially for the initial backup. Uploading mass amounts of data to an online account via the internet can take days or even weeks depending on the bandwidth speed; but there’s no way around it – data backup is essential.
That’s where IDrive’s Express Database Plug-In comes to the rescue, making data backup and restore for databases faster and easier.
The plug-in works in association with our IDrive Express service, which uses a physical drive to ship large amounts of data to a user’s online account, eliminating bandwidth usage and speeds the process up. The plug-in is ideal for businesses that utilize database servers and are looking for faster backup or restore.
The IDrive Express Plug-In is available free of charge and works with MS SQL, MS Exchange, and MS SharePoint Server databases.
Simply download the plug-in for free.
Request an IDrive Express drive (up to 3TB).
Once you receive the drive, select the data from your database and add it to the physical drive.
Ship the drive with your data back to IDrive.
We will then transfer your data from the device to our secure servers.
Within 3-5 business days, your data will be accessible from your IDrive online account and incremental backups can commence via the plug-in thereafter.
We recognize that business continuity often depends on speed and uninterrupted workflow, so we’ve created a plug-in for our Express Service to provide a faster backup and restore process that encourages productivity while simultaneously promoting data protection.
*The IDrive Express service is free three times a year for Pro Business users, $59.95 after that, shipping included. IDrive Express can be utilized for up to 3 TB of data backup or retrieval, and is available in the US, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Australia and the UK. The Express Database Plug-In is always free of charge to download and use.
