So I just had a hellish 2 days restoring a failed server.

 

Tip for the wise: If you use r1soft from Idera, it restores each database table row-by-row, then checks each row one at a time for errors.

 

This is great for making sure everything is correct. Not so great when you have 60+ databases with 200,000+ row tables in them.

 

One database in particular took from 1:50pm Thursday until 6:30am Friday to finish.

 

I cried.


Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

That seems very accurate and terribly inefficient. A very fast SSD would probably make it much better though. >.>

An SSD would also not last very long on a high volume server. :P

They have ones with better read/write cycles now specifically for databases.

I bet that costs a pretty penny
