Historically, administrators have protected servers and applications by backing up data to tape.
Although regular tape backups are essential, recovery time objectives and recovery point
objectives cannot always be met by traditional backup solutions alone. Today, Microsoft SQL
Server administrators must choose between the many built-in tools contained in Microsoft
Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 in conjunction with SQL Server 2005
or invest in tools from other vendors. In some cases, a combination of technologies is the best
way to achieve business goals because many tools that meet one type of business requirement
don’t necessarily meet the requirements of another. Finally, not all versions have the necessary
features included.

Veritas™ Storage Foundation HA for Windows from Symantec is designed to support the Standard
Edition and the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server; all versions of the Microsoft Windows 2003
Server and Windows Server 2008 operating systems, including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions;
and VMware and Microsoft Virtual Server environments. SQL Server 2005 is available in four
different versions: Express, Workgroup, Standard, and Enterprise. For organizations running SQL
Standard or Enterprise, data availability is an issue that must be explored.
