New research from Kroll Ontrack highlights that an overwhelming majority (87 percent) of SQL restore events have their roots in human error.

The most common human error is accidental deletion accounting for one in three (35 percent) restore requests. This is followed by development errors (28 percent), erroneous overwrites (24 percent) and system crashes (13 percent) adding hours of recovery time for SQL database administrators (DBAs).

With previous Kroll Ontrack survey results reporting database table restorations taking upwards of an hour to complete, leveraging efficient technologies to reduce restore time is key to saving time and money.

“It’s no secret that data housed within SQL databases is critically important to the business success of an organization,” says Paul Le Messurier, programme and operations manager at Kroll Ontrack. “As such, any disruption to the database is inherently costly, putting pressure on DBAs to execute an efficient recovery solution.”
