Microsoft and CA Set Backup/Restore Benchmark

Microsoft, Computer Associates International (CA), and other collaborators recorded a record-setting 2.6TB-per-hour archival backup of a 2.5TB SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition database running on Windows 2000 Datacenter Server, the companies said this week. CA's BrightStor Enterprise Backup sustained a restore rate of 2.2TB per hour on 32 drives.
