SQL Server - Split Database Full Backup to Multiple files

Aug 24 2011 12:00AM by Paresh Prajapati   

As a maintenance activity, DBA need to take care of the database backups and monitoring for the same because database backups are more important in recovery. Production live databases have more size and due to that it is require more time and IO to complete it.

You may know those full database backups are require more time to complete it as well as backup size will be more for the same. So SQL Server have one more features to database backups can split to multiple files. Using this way SQL Server run the multiple thread of database backups for each files and can be completed faster comparatively with less time and IO.

  • Sorry Paresh, but i dont agree with this. Time for second method is less because second time backup speed was 23.889 MBs/Sec (possibly server has less pressure at that time) as compared to first one i.e. 20.095 MBs/Sec. I have not tested but possibly it second method could be better when you are splitting between different physical hard drives, instead of single one with same path.
