CloudBerry Lab has announced the availability of CloudBerry Backup for SQL Server that automates the process of backing up SQL Server databases to more than 15 supported cloud storage platforms.

The latest edition of CloudBerry Backup lets users choose what database to back up and whether to use full, differential, or transaction log backup. Each backup option can be set with a different schedule by either using a custom schedule or a template. In addition, CloudBerry Backup is simple to use and doesn't require additional SQL Server administration knowledge to perform the database backup.

CloudBerry Backup is available immediately and costs $149.99 for a single license. Visit CloudBerry Lab's website to learn more about the offering, or read up on the latest SQL Server backup techniques in "Restoring Database Backups."
