Topic: Implementing Centralized Backups For All Of Your DatabasesRunning backups instance by instance can be painful and hard to keep in sync at times. Backup scripts can become out of date, it can become difficult to turn off backups globally (e.g. for maintenance), and backup location changes can be difficult to make.If you desire to have a single-point of execution for backups so that you can control your environment by going to a central place, this session is for you. We will go through the required database structures, the SSIS packages that perform the work, and the metadata that is responsible for controlling the backup process. You will walk away with an understanding of how you can implement your own solution to fit the needs of your organization.
