Backup Basics with Powershell and dbatools

As DBAs, one of our top priorities is keeping the organization’s data backed up and ready to be restored when needed. We also need to be prepared to answer questions about those backups. Do you have a standard backup process? Can you meet your recovery time requirements? Do you know the backups are good? Do you have documentation of your backup history and verification? Are you backing up your instance configuration as well as the databases themselves?

dbatools has a suite of versatile Powershell functions designed to help you answer those questions confidently and quickly. In this presentation filled with practical examples, we’ll take a tour of the core dbatools functions for creating, restoring, and monitoring your backups, whether you’re manging one instance or dozens of them.
