Hello, does anybody know if any versions of SQL have the ability to compress log files before shipping. The plan was to log ship from the local data centre to a SQL instance in EC2 (Amazon Cloud) but due to the high latency we get from here (NZ) to Amazon (Singapore) a large file takes an unrealistic time to copy. Therefore compression would be a help.

We are currently using SQL 2008 STD.

I think I have read the SQL 2008 Enterprise editions have this feature but I am unsure if SQL 2008 R2 STD or SQL 2012 STD also have this feature as I think normal backup compression was added to these additions....thanks

sql 2008 enterprise has this feature. From Sql 2008R2 it was available in the standard edition.

If you are on 2008 standard there are a number of third party tools that will provide backup compression for you.

thanks, and as far as you know the backup compression on R2 STD and 2012 STD compresses log files created from a standard log backup regime or via a log shipping backup regime?

It is configurable. Run sp_help_log_shipping_primary_database against master on your primary instance and look for the backup_compression column

Given that you are shipping across the internet I would encrypt my backup too. that you cannot do with SQL Server built-in stuff. Either get third party tool (which may not be functional on AWS instance) or use 7zip et al to handle compression/encryption and build a simple process to handle decryption/compression in cloud (should be doable, but not haven't tried it).

Best,
