Got it. I understand now. I just had to laugh at [what I thought] was a ...less than informed... choice.

I agree with you: MS could definitely put some bells and whistles on their backup/restore solutions. I'm still bummed they don't allow SQL Standard to do backup compression.

I attended a "preview" conference call yesterday with Oracle reps discussing Oracle 12c. One of the features was multiple databases under one instance. What a concept! If this "keep up with Microsoft" strategy keeps up, they'll be giving away OEM free with a purchase of the product.

<Hearty LOL>

My apologies to all SQL Server Central readers in this thread.

It's amazing how a conversation 10 minutes before posting can influence the thought process. I'd just had a discussion about SQL 2008 Standard not compressing backups and actually inferred that [all versions] of SQL Standard didn't allow compression when in reality, MS switched gears to a more generous feature set in SQL 2008 R2 which does allow compression.

I still had the thought process of explaining to someone that SQL 2008 didn't allow it, when I posted.

Cheers,
Ken
