A second question related to SQL server backups, please feel free to
respond privately if needed: We will be having a database that is 20TB in
size, a reporting/DW type DB with nightly loads. What are the commonly
available backup strategies - On the Oracle side, we used to use SRDF with
very little effect on the primary DB to backup huge DBs. There is also
Dataguard to offsite the backups.
In one scenario, if we do not have the option of having a remote replicated
site and we have to do the backup from the PDC (primary data center), what
tools do we have for a SQL server DB of that size.
Is it possible to backup the 'partitions' only in the SQL server - this
might make life lot easier to capture modified partitions only in the

Certainly not free, same with plsql mentioned earlier, all these use the
"licensed" cpu power which costs you about 100K €/$ per processor
definition (counting common enterprise options) initial license and 1/4 of
that each year thereafter.
