• Should we put local SQL Server files on NAS or SAN?

    We're preparing to install a new server on SQL Server 2008. Here's our question: What would you recommend - one server with RAID 10 or all the files on a NAS? Or should we just use iSCSI? The new server has about 4 GB of RAM and the database file has 2 GB. What's the best option for us?

  • How to confirm if RAID drive went bad?

    We have a Synology DS213 that has two 600 GB drives on RAID 1. I think it was two nights ago, it reported that the second drive became degraded and we should replace it. But when we ran the SMART test, it said the drive was fine. Is there to actually confirm that the drive went bad?

  • Handle MySQL backups with Git

    For our MySQL backup, we came up with a pretty good idea but we're not entirely sure. To backup it up, we thought of putting the dump file into a Git repository, and the commit on each dump so we have the most recent copy / we can roll back to a previous backup. But we're not sure of the flaws...

  • What’s the best method for PostgreSQL incremental backup?

    We've been using pg_dump piped to gzip to split for PostgreSQL backups. But here's the problem: All of the output files are always changed (so basically the checksum-backup copies all of the data). Is there any other way to perform an incremental backup of a PostgreSQL database?

    Our MySQL backup strategy is to replicate our database to a second server and then run mysqldump on that server to get rid of any downtime from table locking.

  • Should we use Duplicity as our backup strategy?

    Several clients have come to us to work on a few backup strategies. We've been leaning towards duplicity for the remote backup but we have a few questions that need answering. Is it really reasonable to do a full backup every so often? And is duplicity efficient enough to do a full backup?
