Using SQL Server Live Mount for Testing and Development Purposes
Rubrik's Live Mount for SQL Server technology provides the ability to grant near instantaneous access to specific point in time copies of production databases. Live Mount requires no upfront storage provisioning, nor does it transfer large amounts of data across the network. Instead, point in time copies of databases are mounted directly from the Rubrik cluster. This opens up the doors for a variety of use cases as it pertains to testing and development.
This Solutions Walkthrough will outline the process of utilizing Rubrik Live Mount to perform the following testing and development use cases:
- Table Comparison utilizing Microsofts' tablediff.exe command
- Database Health Checks utilizing the dbcc checkdb query.
