Jamie Wick, Systems & Database Engineer The College of William & Mary
Backing up databases is (arguably) the most important maintenance task for any database administrator. But the question is: Which solution should you choose for creating and managing your backups? In this session we'll discuss the options available and demonstrate 2 of the solutions in action (Ola Hallengren's DatabaseBackup and Minionware's Minion Backup).
Jamie Wick is the Systems & Database Engineer for The College of William & Mary and has been working with databases for the past 10+ years. His background includes working for several years as a SQL SysAdmin for the University of Queensland (Australia), a Master's degree in Computer Information Systems from Boston University, and assorted Microsoft SQL certifications. He is a volunteer & speaker at regional SQL events (User Groups/SQLSaturdays), helps run the Richmond SQL Server Users Group and SQLSaturday RVA events, and is an avid photographer.
