Abstract: IBM® Tivoli® Storage FlashCopy® Manager takes advantage of the Microsoft® Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) framework to provide rapid application-aware backups and restores using IBM® XIV® Storage System Gen3 advanced snapshot technology. This white paper describes VMware® ESX 5.1 business critical database protection for Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2012 virtual machines (VMs). Installation, configuration and best practice guidelines are shared exclusively for guest initiated local backups and restores of Microsoft SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Group (AAG) databases yet many of the data protection concepts can be applied to traditional Microsoft SQL Server databases.
