Today’s Hidden Risk: Invalid Database Snapshot

An invalid database copy can be created when a storage-based snapshot (or any other type of copy, such as replica, clone, etc.) of the database is taken while the database is not in “hot backup” mode. In this case, the copy may be unusable when a restore is attempted.

  • How can an invalid database snapshot occur in your environment?
  • Why will it come back to bite you?
  • What will be the impact on your environment?
  • How can you avoid the risk?

This risk is one of 5,000+ downtime and data loss vulnerabilities identified in over one hundred of the largest data centers worldwide included in Continuity Software’s community-sourced knowledgebase.
