sql backup of logfiles

Post by frankive » Apr 07, 2015 7:56 pm

I have just setup a backupjob with a SQL-server.I
The job will copy the log files every 15 min.
Sql server is set to FULL on the databases and application aware processing with truncating is enabled.

My qeustion;
how do Veeam copy the files every 15 min.? Will it create a snapshot on my Hp Lefthand san or just just plain file copy from a share?

Frank, please review how transaction logs backup works in detail. Hope this answers your question. Thanks.

Nice post. But how is the backup technically performed? will it create snapshot through our lefthand hardware provider?

No snapshots are created. Veeam B&R just copies the log backup files backed up by native SQL Server log backup process (which does not use any snapshots either).
