When backing up your SQL Server database, you have the option of taking transaction log backups. These are quick, small backups containing a sequence of all your database’s changes. Transaction log backups are mightily useful for point-in-time recovery.
As a DBA, you have almost certainly taken a backup from one server for the purposes of restoration on another server. It’s a somewhat tedious and manual process, but most of us are sort of resigned to it and accept it simply as a necessary evil of the DBA role. I mean, it’s not like you can automate the entire process, right? Well, hold that thought …
If you’re looking for an easy way to quickly restore a database backup then you have found the right place.
